Candy Factory Films is proud to announce the first titles to be released under the Electric Candy name: Writer/Director Eddie Mullins’ pre-apocalyptic comedy, "Doomsdays," starring Leo Fitzpatrick ("Kids") will be released day and date in theaters and VOD on June 5; Sarah Adina Smith’s paranormal psychodrama, "The Midnight Swim," which recently won an audience award at AFI Fest and Fangoria called "One of Fango’s favorite films from the fest circuit over the past year," will receive a limited theatrical and VOD release on June 26th.

Candy Factory has also just acquired Patrick Ryan’s revenge drama, "Darkness on the Edge of Town," which screened at this year’s Slamdance Film Festival and garnered high praise for its script, performances, and cinematography. Maren Olson of Traction Media negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers with Caitlin Gold of Candy Factory.

“The launch of our genre arm is a major growth-spurt for our young company,” says Candy Factory CEO Jason Ward. “We’re thrilled to welcome these exceptional films and filmmakers into our family.”

Additional titles to be released under the Electric Candy moniker include Merlin Dervisevic’s "Cruel & Unusual," starring award-winning actors Richard Harmon ("The Age of Adaline") and Michael Eklund ("Watchmen"), and Brandon Nicholas’ surreal thriller, "Limbus," which tells the story of four cult members stuck in purgatory following a mass suicide.
