Candyman ★★★½

While I still do prefer the 1992 version (as it was gripping and much more terrifying in sequences), this had some nice moments where it didn't feel like it was trying to rip off/be better than the original.
What is plain to see is the gore, the violence is stylised and very in your face which I honestly didn't expect for this film. The pacing was drawn out, but not too slow just took its time to reveal characters as well as the main plot. It executed the modern look of the Candyman style which aids the original tremendously. I will say to those who are interested, see this at the cinema as the kills and suspense were designed greatly by the sound mixing that went on.
Overall good time!
