Candyman ★★★★

I'm extremely excited to see what Nia DaCosta and Jordan Peele do with this material, as this film seems sometimes surface-level in its explorations of issues of class & race. It's theoretically socially aware, but really at the end of the day it's really focused on the atmosphere of dread over everything else.

What an intoxicating atmosphere it is, though.
