You don't have to believe... just beware.
The Candyman, a murderous soul with a hook for a hand, is accidentally summoned to reality by a skeptic grad student researching the monster's myth.
I was very excited that my first assignment was to be Candyman , a movie that I wanted to see for a long time. I had heard very much about it, but mostly that it was an important horror movie everyone interested in horror should see. So I knew nothing specific about it and just figured it would be an usual horror flick about an unstoppable killer, your standard run-of-the-mill shlasher film if you will, adored by horror enthusiasts.
I was very pleasently surprised that this movie was so much more.
Candyman is based on the short story "The Forbidden" by Clive Barker and the…
"It was always you, Helen. Come with me and be immortal."
This classic frightened a generation of their own bathroom mirrors. Totally under-appreciated upon it's release, even to this day but Bernard Rose's contemporary horror based on the short story, The Forbidden, by Clive Barker is a minor masterpiece and features a menacing performance from Tony Todd. While Freddy Kruger, Michael Myers and others stole the horror limelight, the Candyman not just haunted my dreams but forced me to avoid the mirror all the way through my teenage years of school in the fear that Candyman would appear and rip his hook through my gullet - in turn it didn't make me very popular in school. If you haven't seen…
Candyman is another one of those movies I have a hard time rating due to inner-turmoil caused by nostalgia. I have wanted to give this movie a re-watch for so long, that now that I finally have, I wonder if maybe I should have just let it remain in the annals of my personal sentiment.
This is still a decent story about urban legends, with a heavy emphasis on urban as the short story written by Clive Barker was taken out of England and placed in inner-city Chicago, containing a tragic tale accompanied by a haunting and ethereal score from the genius of Philip Glass. Tony Todd will forever remain one of my favorite genre-actors but something about this movie…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
20th film watched for my official 2014 Halloween season horror movie MegaBash (still not following the order I set for it yet)
So... apparently, a lot of people are deciding this isn't as good as they once thought it was... Shame be on the lot of you. Like with several of these re-watches for the season, this film has never played stronger than it did today. Of course, I've got the speakers cranked a fair deal (and they're small speakers) (small, but powerful with the right movie). Tony Todd's one-of-a-kind voice filling the room like he's right behind me. Doing all this (shutting off the lights, turning off the fan, making sure I can hear the film's quiet as clearly…
Film 17/31 of: 31 Days Of Horrorween! October Horror Movie Marathon
Candyman Candyman Candyman Candyman ............. "We Dare You To Say His Name Five Times!"
Candyman is a decent horror movie about an urban legend boogeyman who is terrorizing the projects in Chicago. Tony Todd is really impressive has the creepy main villain (thats got a stupid name). The film as some nice bits of gore but with very few scares, more a slow burning thriller. After a good start i think the story loses it way and fails to touch upon the Candyman's past with any significance.
Overall the film is well made decent watch, Philip Glass's score is very good and has its own urban legend of being the best 90's horror movie ( which i don't agree with). I never usually say this but i think this needs a remake!
"Candyman Candyman Candyman Candyman Candy......." FUCK THAT!! I still won't do it.
Format: digital file
Location: Home, laptop
Unnerving and refreshing, particularly at its time of release. What starts out seemingly like inner city slasher quickly turns into a psychological nightmare.
And that score.
A very good movie that, with a bit of thematic and structural tweaking, might have been a great one.
Candyman, Candyman, Candyman, Candyman, Candyman y aparece un negro detras del espejo reclamandote tu alma. Nuestra chica protagonista decide investigar lo sucedido con Candyman y delante del espejo dice las 5 veces Candyman. Pronto se le aparecerá y de paso meterla en los asuntos de asesinatos donde ella se encuentra. La peli ha envejecido bastante, parece más vieja de lo que es, y lo cierto es que no da miedo ni tiene momentazos memorables, aun así la banda sonora es hipnótica y la película se deja ver.
Some interesting ideas that never really develop into something good but Glass's score is so cool.
I like my women how I like my coffee... COVERED IN BEES!
My guys favorite horror movie, for reasons unknown, but a good late night cuddler with some real scares.
A nice, fun B-movie with Chicago ambiance and Cabrini Green RIP.
Gran banda sonora, atmosfera i premisa basada en les llegendes urbanes. Recordo que em va impactar l'any 92 i ha estat interessant tornar a revisionar-la al cine.
Great score, atmosphere and premise based on urban legends. I still remember the impact on me the year '92 and it has been interesting to rewatch it again at the cinema.
Gillar idén att den Jasonaktiga seriemördaren får någon annan att ta skulden.
