THE DEVIL’S CANDY, written and directed by Sean Byrne will be released in March 2017 by IFC Midnight. The film starring Ethan Embry, Shiri Appleby, Pruitt Taylor Vince, and Kiara Glasco made its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.
In THE DEVIL’S CANDY Jesse, a struggling artist, moves with his wife and daughter into their dream house in rural Texas, the price driven down by the property’s dark past. Their lives soon begin to unravel as the demonic forces lurking in the house take hold of the young family. Jesse’s paintings take a satanic turn while the family is plagued by Ray, the deranged son of the former owners. Soon it becomes clear that Jesse and Ray are both being influenced by the same dark forces and that Jesse and his family aren’t safe from its former inhabitants or indeed from the devil himself.
Notes IFC Midnight: “We are thrilled to be working once more with Snoot Entertainment for Sean Byrne’s terrifying new film, which revels in heavy metal and the occult. We cannot wait to bring the work of one of horror’s most talented up-and-coming filmmakers to North American audiences.”
Keith Calder adds: “IFC Midnight is a great platform for THE DEVIL’S CANDY. Sean, Jess, and I are excited to partner with the team at IFC Midnight to unleash the compelling power of the Devil on unsuspecting American audiences.”
