By RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies

We are back. What a miserable week it has been. Sinusitis is evil. I hope to be on the mends since I can now read/write without getting nauseated. But enough about me, let's get to the news.

Have you heard the violent true story of Candy Montgomery? Some may remember that Candy is responsible for murdering her friend Betty Gore with 41 ax hit on Friday the 13th in June of 1980. For you movie history buffs, this helped propel the popularity of Friday the 13th at the drive-ins in the summer of 1980. Naturally, the act of murder is enough to generate interest, but the fact that Candy didn’t look like your average killer(remember this is the 80s), nor did her lifestyle reflect she was capable of it. 

Now Hulu is bringing us Candy starring Jessica Biel in the title role. The series will be a five-night event, premiering May 9th on Hulu. In the limited series, Candy Montgomery is a 1980 housewife and mother with a good husband, two kids, nice house; but when the pressure of conformity, her actions scream for freedom. With deadly reverberations.

Candy also stars Melanie Lynskey, Timothy Simons, Pablo Schreiber, and Raúl Esparza. Writer and producer Robin Veith. Jessica Biel and Michelle Purple are executive producers. 

Check out the trailer below.
