It’s officially a new year, and one of the first horror movies to be released in 2023 is writer-director John Swab‘s (Ida Red) horror-thriller Candy Land.


“Candy Land follows Remy (Olivia Luccardi), a seemingly naïve and devout young woman who finds herself cast out from her religious cult. With no place to turn, she immerses herself in the underground world of truck stop sex workers, a.k.a. “lot lizards,” courtesy of her hosts, Sadie (Sam Quartin), Riley (Eden Brolin), Liv (Virginia Rand), and Levi (Owen Campbell).


“Under the watchful eye of their matriarch, Nora (Guinevere Turner), and enigmatic local lawman, Sheriff Rex (Billy Baldwin), Remy navigates between her strained belief system and the lot lizard code to find her true calling in life.”


The movie is produced by John Swab and Jeremy M. Rosen. Robert Ogden Barnum and Michael Reiser serve as executive producers.


Candy Land opens in theaters and lands On Demand on January 6, 2023. Check out the brutal trailer.
