We’ve got our hands on the first official pictures of The Devil’s Candy, the upcoming supernatural horror movie directed by Australian Filmmaker Sean Byrne (who previously helmed “The Loved Ones“) and starring Ethan Embry, Shiri Appleby, Pruitt Taylor Vince, and Kiara Glasco:
“Metal music, wet paint, and family are the passions of Jesse (Ethan Embry), a struggling painter who lives a happy life with his wife, Astrid (Shiri Appleby), and their preteen daughter, Zooey (Kiara Glasco). And things look even brighter when Jesse and Astrid are able to put in a bid on their dream home: a huge property in rural Texas with a barn big enough for a proper art studio. After the trio moves in, Jesse’s work starts taking on a new, considerably darker flavor –and things get even more ominous when Ray (Pruitt Taylor Vince), the hulking, clearly unbalanced son of the deceased former owners, appears on the doorstep one night, clutching a red electric guitar and asking to ‘return home’. It soon becomes clear that Ray and Jesse are both being influenced by the same satanic forces and that Jesse’s family won’t be safe until they find a way to quiet the Devil himself.”
The plot synopsis just reminded me of French Philosopher Simone de Beauvoir’s quote: “Art is an attempt to integrate evil”.
Anyway, am curious to see Ethan Embry’s performance as an artists possessed by the devil!
The film has yet to get an official release date.
