In what may be the best Halloween treat yet, IFC Midnight has acquired North American distribution rights on Modern Horror’s first and only perfectly rated 10/10 horror film (review).  Writer/Director Sean Byrne’s film made its world premiere last year at the Toronto International Film Festival to huge critical acclaim but went quiet after its festival run. The wait for this occult and heavy metal mashup has been excruciating, and finally we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Bring on the metal mayhem!

The Devil’s Candy stars Ethan Embry, Shiri Appleby, Pruitt Taylor Vince and Kiara Glasco.  IFC Midnight will release the film in March 2017.

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.
