This week we invite Sordid Cinema’s very own Victor Stiff to help us discuss two new genre films floating around on VOD. It’s been eight years since Australian writer-director Sean Byrne won us over with his debut feature The Loved Ones, an instant classic and now he’s back with belated follow-up The Devil’s Candy. But before we discuss his sophomore effort we review The Void, a nostalgic rush for fans of low-budget 1980s horror from directors Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski (Father’s Day). Does The Void mark a new, more serious direction for Canadian genre filmmaking collective Astron-6? Is The Devil’s Candy a sophomore slump or a solid follow up to his first time feature? We’ll let you know what we think.
All this and more!
