“All in all, I think the new ‘Candyman’ is a sound visual addition to the horror genre, and a solid expansion on the story that isn’t heavy on the scares but rather filled with examples of Black pain that are true-to-life horrifying – and maybe that ultimately was DaCosta’s intent.”
My final thoughts from August on the reboot of CANDYMAN. A good story, albeit not as scary as I expected, the new film wet my whistle, gave refreshment, but still left me thirsting in some areas. Yet, I was satisfied with the conclusion, and there’s plenty of entertainment to be had.
