#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Metal music, wet paint, and family are the passions of Jesse, a struggling painter who lives a happy life with his wife, Astrid, and their preteen daughter, Zooey. 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 price is driven down due to the home’s mysterious past. After the trio moves in, Jesse’s work starts taking on a new, considerably darker flavour – and things get even more ominous when Ray, 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.
Plot: A struggling painter is possessed by satanic forces after he and his young family move into their dream home in rural Texas.

Goes largely unresolved, but still has a good grasp of the technical aspects and some small amount of originality.
_Final rating:★★★ – I personally recommend you give it a go._
Anyone as old as me will remember TV’s “Laugh In” and comedian Flip Wilson’s oft repeated line “The devil made me do it!” It became, like “Sock it to me” from the same show, a Buzz Phrase for the time.
“The Devil’s Candy” certainly fits into “the devil made me do it” category as far as character motivation. Here the devil makes one character kill and another paint dark disturbing pictures of which they have no memory of painting. But rather than cliché us or bore us with the same old “call a priest” which we have seen a million times, the story plays out as a very human drama of one man dealing with what doctors would call a mental illness, and another dealing with an obsession that is costing him his family.
Yet do not think the film is without chills. Indeed it has some extremely disturbing and violent scenes! However these are done with a modicum of gore and blood so they are not gross out horrors; rather than true horrors as they let you in on what is happening just enough to worry your mind.
The film also makes a subtle statement about how we as a society fail to treat mental patients with violent pasts.
Acting all around is top notch. Ethan Embry, Shiri Appleby (nice to see after not having seen her in a while), Kiara Glasco, and Pruitt Taylor Vince never once drop the ball; bringing us fully into their worlds.
This movie is metal
Here’s a good, creepy movie for you. A family moves in to a house cursed by The Devil, and the previous occupant returns to carry out what the demonic voice in his head tells him to do — which just so happens to be the same voice the father hears that compels him to paint horrifying scenes.
There’s a lot of subtle and not-so-subtle things that make this movie really great. From the metal soundtrack, with all of its connotations to devil worship all the way to names and roles of certain characters and locations referencing the biblical devil, a lot of thought and care was put in to making this movie work on more than one level and flow together great.
Rarely is the movie too heavy handed. The supernatural elements are treated with such a deft hand that it’s almost possible a case could be made that this movie isn’t even supernatural at all. It’s there, around the edges, creeping in to your head, but never getting in your face. The scariest monsters are always the ones you cannot see.
And, at its core, what really matters are strong characters. Though a lot of the family in this movie are metal heads, there are no stereotypes here. These are real three dimensional people, and they care about each other very much. It sounds so obvious, but you’d be surprised how many movies forget to make you invested in their protagonists. Not so, in “The Devil’s Candy.” If you’re looking for a horror movie with a strong sense of personal style and you like heavy metal, I definitely recommend The Devil’s Candy.
The terror at the end of this movie is true terror. This director has an uncanny talent for building unbearable tension. You love this family at the beginning and that sets everything up for the insane horror they experience and that you experience because you feel for them. Good stuff yo.
