One of the best horror movies of the 90s. Tony Todd is iconic as Candyman and Virginia Madden is fantastic as Helen. Must see. Be his victim
Arguably the GOAT horror film; villain, score, setting, a relevant message. Everything about this is perfection
Very good 90s horror. Would've liked some more context on the candyman tho
This movie terrified me a lot more than I thought it would. The start is a bit too slow but once it gets going, it REALLY gets going.
Horror film that doesnt pull any punches and is solid in its filmmaking. Acting is great, the music is haunting, and it has a solid message.
Absolutely phenomenal horror movie with an amazing villain. More people should watch this one.
The terror might've subsided, but the story is still fresh, and so is the cinematography. You won't see it coming.
"be my victim" "Be one of the only great 90s horror films"
No words. Incredible performances and breathtaking plot. Poetic and genuinely scary.
A great horror with commentary that I know I don’t have the insight to properly unpack.
The Candyman, a murderous soul with a hook for a hand, is accidentally summoned to reality by a skeptic grad student researching the monster's myth.
The Candyman moves on to New Orleans and starts his horrific murders once more. This time, his intended victim is a school teacher. Her father was killed by the Candyman, and brother wrongly accused of the murders.
The Candyman returns to try to convince his female descendent, an artist, to join him as a legendary figure. To this end, he frames her for a series of hideous murders of her friends and associates so that she has nowhere else to turn to.
Anthony and his partner move into a loft in the now gentrified Cabrini-Green. After a chance encounter with an old-timer exposes Anthony to the true story behind Candyman, he unknowingly opens a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifying wave of violence.
