Candyman ★★★

Watched it a week ago and honestly I still don't know what rating to give this. I can't help but compare it to the original, which is way superior in every possible way. Sure the visuals are nice and the lead actors (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II & Teyonah Parris) are truly great, but the script is a mess and it tries to expand on the original when it really has nothing special to add. Still it was a lot of fun to finally watch a proper horror film in cinemas and I liked it enough to watch it again one of these days. Just a bummer that it wasn't what I hoped it would be as I was very much looking forward to it.
