Candyman ★★★★

It’s not often a movie I’ve really wanted to see comes out on my birthday. And I am glad it’s a good one!

Candyman is a masterfully directed, visually haunting, and wonderfully acted thrill ride that deepens the franchise's mythology in a really neat and clever fashion. The MVPs are Yahya Abdul-Mateen II‘s fantastic performance, Tony Todd because Tony Todd, the beautifully rich score by Robert A. A. Lowe, and of course Nia DaCosta‘s phenomenal direction. I CANNOT wait for The Marvels.
