Critic Reviews:

The movie has aged slightly, with the opening sequence–a creepy exchange of flirty pleasantries between Jeff and Hayley–taking place in a chat-room. However, given the considerable number of child molestation cases currently making the news worldwide, and bound to continue to make headlines for years to come, it’s unlikely Hard Candy will ever be considered passé. A terrifyingly realistic movie disguised as a thriller, it more than deserves its spot in the Not Quite Horror pantheon.

Hard Candy is the kind of uncompromising independent motion picture that is likely to foster ambivalence in a significant portion of its audience.

There are few horror films I would rate as perfect, and this is now among that top-tier of film making excellence. Don’t watch this if you’re a wuss. You will regret it.


On Halloween eve in 1980, local outcast, Jacob Atkins, is carelessly murdered. A vagabond witch doctor, Dr. Death, takes matters into his own hands and brings Julien back from the dead to creatively seek brutal revenge on his killers.

A struggling painter is possessed by satanic forces after he and his young family move into their dream home in rural Texas.

Two ghost hunters are called upon a distressed family who claim they are being tormented by an evil spirit known in their local town as The Candy Witch. But as the mystery of her curse is uncovered, surprising and sinister turns are discovered around...

The Candyman, a murderous soul with a hook for a hand, is accidentally summoned to reality by a skeptic grad student researching the monster's myth.

Have you ever wondered what might have happened if serial killers John Gacy and Dean Corll met Charles Manson? That is the basic premise of this semi-historically accurate dark comedic tale of horror.

The Candyman moves on to New Orleans and starts his horrific murders once more. This time, his intended victim is a school teacher. Her father was killed by the Candyman, and brother wrongly accused of the murders.
