‘F*cking cherry pie!’
Sweet Taste of Souls is a 2020 American horror feature film about young people that find themselves imprisoned in the deranged cafe owner’s art collection.
Directed by Terry Ross from a screenplay written by Felicity Scott Mudgett, the Flying Dolphin Productions movie stars Honey Lauren (House of Darkness; Paranormal Adoption; Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Sarah J. Bartholomew (Beverly Hills Ghost; Alien Convergence), Amber Gaston (Hotel Dunsmuir; Alien: Night Shift short) and Mark Valeriano (Ted Bundy Had a Son; The 27 Club; The Dark Military). It was produced by Bee Pedersen.
Nerves are frayed after an all-night drive when Nate, Kyle, Wendy, and Lily spot “Elle’s Kountry Kitchen” in the decaying rural town of Angel Falls and decide to make a stop for cherry pie.
The eerie café and Ellinore’s disturbing demeanour are unnerving enough, but the café also displays an unsettling photo gallery – of previous wayfarers all in odd, stiffly posed positions. In fact, the people in the photos are alive, trapped in their little photo prisons, free to move about except when customers are in the shop.
A sinister force also lurks in the cursed café. It directs Ellinore’s sad, broken mind and orchestrates her bizarre photography “collection.”
When a problem with one of the photographs causes Ellinore to drown its captives in a fit of rage, she composites a new photo with the images she secretly took of her last visitors. As the replacement shoots off the printer, Nate, Kyle, Wendy, and Lily suddenly get “disappeared” out of their van. They awake to find themselves in a stark photo prison. Through their one glass wall, they see the outside world – the empty café they just left. They are the new exhibits and must escape before Ellinore’s escalating temper causes her to replace them as well.
But some dangers are even more penetrating than death: Evil is always hungry for souls. It cultivates terror, manipulates fear, and seduces with revenge. Nate’s good heart understands and resists, but Lily’s heart is tender, traumatized, and vulnerable – an irresistible prize, like Ellinore’s, before Evil first seduced her.
