"Bad Candy" is a horror anthology with a Halloween theme, so this is something of an acquired taste. Normally, I do like horror quite a lot, but sadly many of the anthologies found in the horror genre tend to be subpar, if not downright horrible. So it was with some reluctance that I sat down to watch the 2020 horror anthology "Bad Candy".<br/><br/>Well, as it usually is with anthologies, then there are stories that have more appeal to you than others, and of course such was also the case with "Bad Candy". Some of the stories here were adequate, while others were bland and sort of dragging on, with only the first of stories actually standing out as being particularly interesting - for me, at least. In terms of storylines for the anthology, then writers Desiree Connell, Scott B. Hansen and Thacker Hoffman delivered a very mixed bags of nuts here.<br/><br/>Visually, then I must say that "Bad Candy" was actually quite alright. The special effects seen in this anythology were actually quite good and complimented the stories nicely.<br/><br/>The acting in "Bad Candy" was adequate, though I can't really point out anyone's single performance to outshine the others. But all in all, the performances were good.<br/><br/>My rating of "Bad Candy", ultimately lands on a mediocre five out of ten stars. "Bad Candy" is watchable, sure, and will provide adequate entertainment for a single Halloween evening in front of the screen. But in the long run, then "Bad Candy" just didn't have anything outstanding or memorable to offer the audience.

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? —Scott Hansen & Desiree Connell
