The Devil’s Candy Blu-ray Review
A family faces off with evil itself in a house from hell in this hard-rocking shocker from Sean Byrne, 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 rural Texas town, unaware that the house they bought at an unbelievable price comes with a grisly history. Their dream home turns into a nightmare as disturbing demonic occurrences culminate with the appearance of Ray (Pruitt Taylor Vince), the home’s former resident- who’s destined to do the devil’s bidding.

I give The Devil’s Candy Blu-ray a B.
I like these kinds of movies. They are the kind that you sit on the couch by yourself or with your significant other with some popcorn and forget about all the stress from your day.
This film wasn’t scary but I liked the progression of how the Devil (well, I actually felt like the house was the Demonic figure) took over Jesse (played by Ethan Embry). The images that he painted were haunting. It added to the story and made the film creepy and dark. Pruitt Taylor Vince (who plays Ray Smilie) character was crazy. He actually did the Devil’s bidding. I think what makes this film different and somewhat disturbing is that the victims were children.
Catch The Devil’s Candy out on Blu-ray Tuesday, September 26th!
