[ # ] Candyman. Candyman. Candyman. Candyman. I ain’t saying his name a fifth time
February 27th, 2020 under Movies


Back in 1992, Tony Todd gave us all nightmares as the Candyman. Now, he and the hook are back for a “spiritual sequel” of the classic franchise.

The Jordan Peele take, brings us back to the Chicago Cabrini-Green neighborhood that has been gentrified for the new era. While the area might look all nice and new, they are still haunted by the old, scary legend that is known as Candyman.

Visual artist Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) has just moved into the area, and someone tells about the ghost story that has terrorized the area for as long as anyone can remember. He decides to bring the urban legend back to life with his art, and it has deadly consequences. Will he be able to stop the Candyman before someone else says his name five times into a mirror.

We will find out on June 12th. I am a huge fan of the Candyman franchise, and at first, I was hesitant about this version. Then after watching the trailer and seeing that Tony Todd is going to be in it as Daniel Robitaille , I am excited to watch it. It looks more like a horror movie from the 20th century than the over CGIed ones we have been getting in this one. Those are so fake, I don’t know how people get scared over them.
