Sordid Cinema Podcast #515: ‘The Void’ and ‘The Devil’s Candy’


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!
