Bad Candy follows local Halloween stories of both myth and lessons learned in the community of New Salem. With its annual Psychotronic FM Halloween show, re-enactment radio DJs Chilly Billy and Paul weave the tales of the supernatural of years gone by. In this small town it’s a grimy ending for most, but will a few good souls survive?
Co-directed by Scott Hansen (The Possession Experiment) and Desiree Connell, based on the latter’s screenplay, the Digital Thunderdome production stars Corey Taylor (lead vocalist of Slipknot), Zach Galligan (Hatchet 3; The Chair; Gremlins), Derek Russo, Ryan Kiser (The Dawn; House of Manson), Kenneth Trujillo, Mike Milligan, Haley Nicole Leary, Bill Pacer and Alexandra Lucchesi.
"BRUTAL FUTURE CULT CLASSIC!
Bad Candy hooks you with the cool vibes of DJ Chilly Billy and then quickly takes you to a dark place with a “sweet kick in the face.” Fierce and bloody deaths complimented by a sinister haunting soundtrack. I found myself anywhere from bobbing my head while watching to wanting to call my dr. and get screened for schizophrenia. Cinematography that really uplifts the story telling and takes it to the next level. One of the best horror films I have seen as of late. I could see them making POP figures of your character. Great job all around, this genra THANKS YOU for your contribution." - Tyler Darkow

It is my sincere belief that the majority of talented people in this world fall somewhere between "fairly unknown" and "completely unknown". I believe that the more that we--the talented unknowns--work with each other....the better it is for all of us.
Former Marine, former college and Minor-League football player, former model & exotic dancer turned comedian/entertainer......the All-American dream, right?
