Take a Bite Out of Hard Candy


Hard Candy (click for a larger view)I kicked myself in the ass when I missed the chance to see David Slade’s Hard Candy in theatres. I cried myself to sleep while eating two tubs of ice cream, 35 snack cakes, and a gallon of rum.

I thought all was lost … but now there is hope! Lionsgate Home Entertainment will be bringing us Hard Candy in DVD form, packed with extras, on September 19th, and you should pre-order it through Evilshop right here!

Here are the details:

In this edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller featuring Patrick Wilson and rising star Ellen Page, precocious 14-year-old Hayley probably shouldn’t be going to a local coffee shop to meet Jeff, a 30-something fashion photographer she met on the Internet. But before she knows it, she’s mixing drinks at Jeff’s place and stripping for an impromptu photo shoot. It seems to be Jeff’s lucky night. But Hayley isn’t as innocent as she looks, and the night takes a turn when she begins to impose a hard-hitting investigation on Jeff in an attempt to reveal his possibly scandalous past.
