BAD CANDY (2020) Review with first trailer

 

Bad Candy is 2020 American dark comedy anthology horror feature film that recounts small-town Halloween stories of both myth and lessons learned. With the annual Halloween show on Psychotronic FM, reenactment Radio DJ personalities Chilly Billy and Paul cover multiple stories spanning years within their city limits. With each story providing its own valuable lessons, it’s a grim ending for most, but will the few good souls survive?

Co-directed by Scott Hansen (The Possession Experiment) and Desiree Connell, based on the latter’s screenplay, the Digital Thunderdome production stars Corey Taylor (lead vocalist of Slipknot), Zach Galligan (Hatchet 3; The Chair; Gremlins), Derek Russo, Ryan Kiser (The Dawn; House of Manson), Kenneth Trujillo, Mike Milligan, Haley Nicole Leary, Bill Pacer and Alexandra Lucchesi.
