Candyman (1992) was a horror hit about a murderous soul with a hook for a hand. A dark soul that can be summoned simply by a person saying his name in the mirror five times.
Starring Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Tony Todd, Teyonah Parris, plus co-written by Jordan Peele and directed by Nia DaCosta, we have a new Candyman story for 2020. This time the dark murderous soul returns to the now-gentrified Chicago neighbourhood where it all began…
I remember watching the original Candyman movie but I’d forgotten about the bees. I don’t believe the original movie gave me nightmares. However, I may have blocked out such memories.
This trailer looks good, DaCosta is a promising new director and Jordan Peele is involved as producer. I therefore can’t wait to see how this turns out.
Colman Domingo, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Rebecca Spence, Cassie Kramer, Brian King, Miriam Moss, Avery Moss, Nadia Simms and Hannah Love Jones also star.
Happy film loving
