Join horror icons Courtney Gains, PJ Soles, Tony Todd and Pancho Moler for an unforgettable carnival experience: “Candy Corn” photos and trailer
Here are the first photos and trailer from writer/director Josh Hasty’s horror thriller, Candy Corn! I talked to Courtney about this in an interview a while back, and he was very excited about being in this cool flick.
Horror film icons Courtney Gains (“Children of the Corn,” “The Burbs”), PJ Soles (John Carpenter’s “Halloween,” “Carrie”), Tony Todd (“Candyman,” “The Crow,” “Final Destination”), and newest icon Pancho Moler (Rob Zombie’s “31,” “From Hell,” “American Horror Story”), join the previously announced cast: Sky Elobar, Caleb Thomas, Madison Russ, Cy Creamer, Jimothy Beckholt, Nate Chaney, Patrick Ryan, Justin Mabry, Matt O’Neill, and Jaime Gallagher to round-out the full cast announcement of Candy Corn.
Candy Corn is Written, Directed, and Produced by auteur filmmaker, Josh Hasty (Director of In Hell Everybody Loves Popcorn, the feature-length documentary on the making of Rob Zombie’s 31).
What’s it about? It’s the eve of Halloween in Grove Hill, Ohio. A traveling carnival is in town for the weekend and local outcast, Jacob Atkins, has been hired as one of the freaks in the event’s main attraction, “Dr. Death’s Side Show Spook House Spectacular”. Meanwhile, a group of local bullies are planning their annual public hazing of Jacob, but this year things go too far.
With an amazing SFX team that includes Justin Mabry (sculptor of the Michael Myers mask in 2018 “Halloween” & Co-Owner of Trick or Treat Studios), Chris Gallaher (“Vice,” “Fear the Walking Dead,” “Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “Passion of the Christ”) and Erik Porn (“Pineapple Express,” “Scream Queens,” “American Horror Story”), you are guaranteed to have terrific practical effects! Costume Designer, Cody Varona (Costume/Stage wardrobe designer to Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, and Guns ‘n’ Roses) also joins the team.
