Why it's great: In The Devil's Candy, a pleasant family moves into a Texas farmhouse only to butt heads (repeatedly) with the home's former owner. It doesn't take long for the lean, mean stalker movie to erupt with terror. Is The Devil's Candy a haunted-house story, a psycho-dad story, or an occult horror story? Sort of all three, and the eerie ambiguity makes it so interesting. With tension that percolates for 60 straight minutes, this movie boasts a great Ethan Embry performance, a few well-crafted scares, and some ass-kickin' heavy-metal tunes.
