About the Movie

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))).

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Mr. Byrne - relying almost entirely on a doom-metal soundtrack, game performers and a grungy palette of oily browns and moldy greens - somehow whips his ingredients into an improbably taut man-versus-Satan showdown. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Mar 15, 2017

Fresh: What makes "The Devil's Candy" a standout is how well-developed these characters are. This is ultimately a movie about parenting, and how even "hip" moms and dads fear the choices they make are hurting their young. – Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times, Mar 16, 2017

Fresh: The Devil's Candy offers a lean and slick homage to occult films, but with a knowing edge that suggests director Sean Byrne is aiming for the critical rafters. – Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail, Mar 7, 2016

Fresh: ...a short, sharp shock of terror... – John Noonan, FILMINK (Australia), Sep 21, 2017

Silly balogna

We watched this based on rotten tomater's positive reviews. Shame on me. Wasn't scary. Wasn't the least little bit fun. At least give me: cue the scary music and out jumps the bad guy. Yep, this was dull. I coulda' done yoga with the 'ol lady to this one. Namaste. Rotten tomaters you let me down. :(

no thnaks

wow. metal music. especially from sun:)) that no one even knows about except for teenage boys in california. i can plug a guitar into an amp and turn it on max and turn up the distortion way loud and then play cords like i'm in a coma too. anyway. the lead actor was good but this movie is not. i don't enjoy watching a grown man smash a rock over a young girls head. that is disgusting and horrible to even put in a movie.

A frenzied ride

The other negative reviews here all sound like they were were written by people who probably shouldn't be watching horror at all. This is a tight little homage to occult films that manages to pull off some real pathos. It's easy to invest in these characters, including Ray, whose haphazard, vicious ambling makes for a deeply unnerving villain. This is one instance where the critics are right.
