Jessica Biel stars in Hulu‘s “five-night event” (whatever the hell that’s supposed to mean) upcoming series Candy. This tells the true story of Candy Montgomery, who killed her friend with an axe back in the 1980s. This synopsis is as follows: 

“Candy Montgomery is a 1980 housewife and mother who did everything right—good husband, two kids, nice house, even the careful planning and execution of transgressions—but when the pressure of conformity builds within her, her actions scream for just a bit of freedom. With deadly results.”

I’ve purposely not researched the subject matter because I want to see this pan out on screen, all I do know is that Candy struck her friend Betty Gore (played by Melanie Lynskey) 41 times with an axe… and claimed it was in self-defense!

This has everything I love. A true-crime story, axe murdering, shower scenes, the 1980s and even though Biel is donning a tight perm hair-do and big glasses, she still looks unbelievably hot.

In a classic Hollywood play, there is also a series on the exact same subject matter starring Elizabeth Olsen in the titular role. Hollywood is so silly.

Candy premieres on Hulu on 9th May. Check out the trailer:
