Evil on the doorstep
13 April 2011 | by (Herrenberg, Germany) – See all my reviews

Alone the trailer for The Candy Shop left me sitting with my mouth open and shivers down my spine. A very touchy subject and a very brave and aware director with the name of Brandon McCormick just bursting to expose to a wide audience what is going on in HIS doorstep - I hoped it would pay off.

Doug Jones (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy, Legion) takes the role of the Candy Shop owner and makes the character so deliciously believably evil. Something is telling you STOP! But you just can't not enter the shop with him.

Only when the inquisitive Jimmy, played by Mattie Liptak, who watches the day to day goings on from his vantage point across the street gets involved does help seem to be at hand. Adults don't have time to get involved - it's not their business anyway.

A dark ending, yes, but so true to life.

This film needs the highest exposure, a masterpiece
