New poster for The Devil’s Candy

22 February 2017 5:20 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week we brought you a trailer for The Devil’s Candy [watch it here], and now IFC Midnight has released an illustrated poster for the the upcoming horror, crafted by renowned artist Ken Taylor; check it out below…

A not-so-average family wrestles with Satan in a house from hell in this heavy metal-charged shocker from the director of The Loved Ones. Diehard metalhead and struggling artist Jesse (Ethan Embry) moves with his wife (Shiri Appleby) and daughter (Kiara Glasco) to a middle-of-nowhere Texas town, unaware that the new house they got for an unbelievable deal comes with a grisly history. Disturbing demonic goings-on culminate with the appearance of Ray (The Walking Dead’s Pruitt Taylor Vince). He’s the home’s former resident, and he’s here to do the Devil’s bidding. The cranked-to-eleven soundtrack blasts Metallica, Slayer, Pantera, and a thunderous original score by doom rock legends Sunn O))).

Official Trailer for Satanic Possession Horror Tale 'The Devil's Candy'

15 February 2017 6:19 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"It's like it flowed through me. I don't remember painting this." IFC Midnight has unveiled the trailer for a horror film titled The Devil's Candy, a creepy satanic possession tale about a struggling painter who moves into a home in Texas. Ethan Embry stars as the father of a young family who is possessed by satanic forces, creating some freaky artwork. The cast includes Shiri Appleby, Kiara Glasco and Pruitt Taylor Vince. This is from the same filmmaker who made the cult horror hit The Loved Ones, and the film first premiered at festivals a few years ago. It looks intense, though I'm not sure why it took years to be released. Here's the new official trailer (+ poster) for Sean Byrne's The Devil's Candy, originally from EW.com: A struggling painter (Ethan Embry) is possessed by satanic forces after he and his young family move into their dream home in rural Texas, »

‘The Loved Ones’ Director Sean Byrne Returns in Trailer for ‘The Devil’s Candy’

15 February 2017 1:29 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The devil works in mysterious ways. And also violent ways. Very, very violent ways. That’s what writer-director Sean Byrne posits in the first trailer for his already-acclaimed sophomore horror flick The Devil’s Candy. The film follows a painter (Ethan Embry) who is possessed by the devil during a painting session, leading to some…shocking work. Byrne made a strong impact in the genre scene with his hardcore first feature The Loved Ones, and he is seemingly continuing his knack for well-composed, brutal acts of violence.

“Byrne is very subtly playing with the demonic undercurrents of art and music in The Devil’s Candy, but this is not a message film, RogerEbert‘s Brian Tallerico writes. “It is a lean, mean, tight (under 80 minutes) thriller that draws from other films like it without feeling derivative. Byrne proves to have directorial skill with actors to match his ability to make »
