Candyman ★★★½

tony todd and virginia madsen were such a hypnotic pair to see performing on the big screen! this movie is still so haunting and visually appealing to this day and while it sadly didn’t scare me as much as i’d anticipated i still adored the iconic tale built around this gothic urban legend. the pacing was a bit too slow for me at times but that fortunately didn’t make it less affective! the score is pretty amazing and i’m beyond obsessed with the original Candyman theme. a true lack of candy here but double the bees - that specific scene (you know which one i’m talking about) will undoubtedly be stuck in my head for another while cause i absolutely loved it. so happy that i got to see this one in theatres and what a way to start off september!
