The Devil’s Candy was originally released 2015, but not mass release until 2017, I think; the timeline is a bit off for me. Either year, though, doesn’t matter, I enjoyed it a lot.
I like it when movies start messed up and don’t stop the pace until the end. The Devil’s Candy’s dark tempo starts immediately, and when the prologue is over, we get to current day. The creators of this film didn’t waste a lot of time with character introductions, we met them and then moved on to some creepy stuff. I wish more movies would do that instead of waiting until the end for the good stuff.
The only thing that I thought was off the scale was the spray tan on
Jesse Hellman (Ethan Embry), who is ripped for this film. As I was saying, the coloring on his face was a bit too orange, like someone else we all know.
That being said, I won’t allow the makeup choice from me giving this thrilling movie credit for being creative and different from the blandness that’s been the horror genre for too long.
I give this one 4.5 out of 5 Stars.
