Candyman

Candyman ★★★

I certainly see why this has a cult following. It blends the formula for a slasher movie with some psychological horror, and it's anchored by a menacing performance by Tony Todd. He very much lives up to the hype. The movie itself? Eh. It's ok. I think the rules are all over the place and the kills aren't very good. It's not paced very well. It's one of those movies that fans can handwave audience questions with "It's dreamlike." I had some ups and downs while watching it, but overall it's unique enough where I think it works.
