Candyman Is A Powerful Black Horror That  Portrays The Real Terror Of Racial Injustice

Say his name, we dare you. Candyman.

Director and co-writer Nia DaCosta’s powerful new reimagining brings back the story of the 1992 “Candyman” with a more relevant touch, that still explores the real horror of racial injustice in today’s society, something that has not changed since the first film came about.

The film is cleverly out together with remnants of the original storyline, weaving in the stores of the many black men who have fallen victim to society.

Candyman is a product of what society has created, he is not just one man, but the many who have fallen victim to the same prejudices over hundreds of years.

“In the present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, Anthony and his partner move into a loft in the now gentrified Cabrini. A chance encounter with an old-timer exposes Anthony to the true story behind Candyman.”

“Anxious to use these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, he unknowingly opens a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifying wave of violence.”

The way the movie explores black pain and the parallels to todays world is intesnse, From the detail in the puppet story telling to the return of Tony Todd, CANDYMAN is a film of its time and deseres all its flowers.




Candyman is in theaters August 27 and it is the movie of the Summer!
