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 2021. 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 unsavoury events from memory.
This trailer looks good, DaCosta is a promising new director and Jordan Peele’s involvement can only mean good things. I therefore can’t wait to see how this turns out. I’ll be watching as early as possible in the day. That way, by nighttime, hopefully I’d have forgotten about the scenes that have the potential to induce nightmares.
Colman Domingo, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Rebecca Spence, Cassie Kramer, Brian King, Miriam Moss, Avery Moss, Nadia Simms and Hannah Love Jones also star.
Candyman Release Dates: August 27th, 2021 (US & UK)…
Happy film loving
