That 3.8 is well earned

I watched this movie because Corey Taylor is in it, however I wish I hadn't. The stories are terribly told, terribly acted, and terribly bad. Save yourself the discomfort and just watch C-SPAN for 2 hours.

Not bad, and not great either.

In the tradition of 'The Twilight Zone', 'Creepshow' and 'Scary stories to tell in the Dark', 'Bad Candy' is an anthology of short stories - told by radio presenters on Halloween night.

This is a seriously demented and bloody film - with a great soundtrack, I might add. The first story is about a young girl, whose stepfather won't allow her to go trick or treating. Able to make her sketches come alive, she gets her revenge on him.

Then there's the selfish young boy who doesn't care about Halloween, but wants candy - good quality candy, and snuffs at the candy offered he finds. There's a guy who offers drugs to strangers at parties, and gets more than he bargained for. And the woman who fantasizes about having sex with a dead guy in a morgue. There's also a bunch of people with pumpkins on their heads being hunted by a vampire. Finally, the House on the Hill.

The film does feature good photography, and great visuals here and there, but in general I just didn't find it interesting enough. There were some creepy moments, and some shocking moments. As the title indicates, 'Bad Candy' might leave a sour taste in your mouth. There are better anthology horrors - or Halloween-related movies out there.

Don't get me wrong, this is not a bad movie, and might please your palate for some gory Halloween horror. It's worth watching at least once if you're into the genre.

Enjoyed this one

Reminds me a lot of 'Trick 'r Treat', with a clever interwoven set of smaller stories.

The cinematography is great, really hands down well done on that. The acting was convincing and I liked some of the costumes. The audio presentation and music were also excellent, nothing over the top but very fitting and an excellent sound track. There are some jokes too, I found this funny at times.

Some tales at the start are classic horror/slasher but as the film plays out more and more of it starts to get strange and had me stumped trying to predict where it was going. This film has some clever writing in that regard.

7/10 enjoyable watch with lots of excellent visuals and some throw backs to classic horror.

I tried giving this one the benefit of the doubt even after some very terrible vfx. I just couldn't take it anymore. Don't waste any bandwidth on this one

Amateur. Poorly written, badly acted, haphazardly edited. There are a couple of sequences that are fun, so if you wanna see this, play it on double speed.
