Fairytale Tuesday: The Candy Shop – A Fairytale About…

The Candy Shop is a short film (that will be released next month) & it is not a pleasant tale. This is something real. So what’s this film all about?
“The film is a Fairytale/Parable about the child sex trafficking epidemic that has overrun our city of Atlanta. We are using the film to not only raise awareness but provoke meaningful action towards this issue taking place in our own backyard.

Up to 500 under aged girls a month are trafficked for sex here in our city of Atlanta. It’s the number one city in the country for child sex trafficking... The 10th in the world.”
Here’s the trailer for the film:

The man who owns the candy shop is like Willy Wonka meets the Child Catchers of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (anyone else remember how creepy he was?!). And I love the outfit the first little girl in the trailer is wearing, yes, my inner Lolita wants the skirt, or something similar ^^

I wish this film all the best; I hope it gets the word out there about these crimes. I also hope that this won’t lead to just people talking about the issue but doing something, & luckily that’s exactly what these film makers have in mind.

What do you think of the trailer?
Is this a good way to bring awareness to an issue?

Stay Spooky,


  1. Even by watching the trailer, I feel like I'm going to have nightmares tonight. That guy gives me the creeps. I can see what you mean about Willy Wonka with a side of Child Catchers.
    Also, I may need your help with throwing together my Halloween costume. I'm going to be a broken porcelain doll, which kind of screams Lolita in my head.
    -Your favourite (at least I hope) Ginger!

  2. No, don't have nightmares!
    Already spoke with you about the costume, but if you need any help/ideas/etc. be sure to message me!
    And yes, you are one of my favorite gingers ^_^
