Candyman

Candyman ★★★★

A really great reimagining of the Candyman legend, acting as a solid follow-up to the original while still standing on its own. Thematically strong and streamlined, dealing with gentrification, subjugation, and becoming an unwilling martyr for an eternal cause. It’s social messages are strong and relevant, despite unfortunately remaining timeless. Scares and gore are well done and are very effective. Beautifully shot and sound design is stellar; there are some great long takes that help give a great sense of space and build dread. Features great performances across the board and is a really satisfying, entertaining chiller.
