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.

Candyman Release Dates: September 25th, 2020 (US)…

LITTLE WOODS (2018): New Trailer From Lily James, Tessa Thompson…

Little Woods is the latest from Tessa Thompson and Lily James.

Written / directed by  Nia DaCosta, it’s a modern western / crime / drama about sisters Ollie and Deb who are driven to work outside the law to better their lives.

Ollie has been helping people in her town to access Canadian health care and medication. Eventually the authorities sense that something’s going on and Ollie decides to quit, except, then comes a desperate plea for help from her sister…

I definitely didn’t see the interesting pairing of Thompson and James coming. I’m looking forward to seeing how the story plays because sibling dynamics are often intriguing and I could be wrong but something tells me that there might just be some tragedy in store.

Luke Kirby, James Badge Dale, Lance Reddick, Elizabeth Maxwell, Luci Christian, Lawrence Varnado, and Alexis West also star.

Little Woods Release Dates: April 19th, 2019 (US)…
