The only thing we love more than a good horror poster is a good horror art poster, and The Devil’s Candy is brining just that.

Australian director Sean Byrne blew us away in 2009 with his gorgeous horror The Loved Ones (starring Xavier Samuel, Robin McLeavy, Victoria Thaine and Jessica McNamee), and then he went and impressed us again at Frightfest Glasgow last year with his latest project.

You can read the official synopsis for The Devil’s Candy here:

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))).

The Devil’s Candy was written and directed by Byrne and produced by Jess Calder and Keith Calder, with music by Mads Heldtberg and Michael Yezerski, and cinematography from Simon Chapman. It stars Ethan Embry, Shiri Appleby, Kiara Glasco, Priott Taylor Vince, Craig Nigh, Marco Perella, Oryan West and Mylinda Royer.
