The Return of Candyman... New Photos released!


Okay. Sorry... I'm just excited. I know we have endless reboots and sequels, but this is one I am completely on board for. Not only is the original creator my favorite horror author Clive Barker (Hellraiser) and newer horror icon Jordan Peele (Get Out, Us) is on board to produce it with his production company Monkeypaw Productions.

Directed by Nia DaCosta (Little Woods) the film is said to be a "Spiritual Sequel"... Candyman is hitting theaters on October 16, 2020

If you haven't seen the original... GO WATCH IT! RIGHT NOW!

“For as long as residents can remember, the housing projects of Chicago’s Cabrini Green neighborhood were terrorized by a word-of-mouth ghost story about a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to repeat his name five times into a mirror. In present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, visual artist Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) and his girlfriend, gallery director Brianna Cartwright (Teyonah Parris), move into a luxury loft condo in Cabrini, now gentrified beyond recognition and inhabited by upwardly mobile millennials.”

“With Anthony’s painting career on the brink of stalling, a chance encounter with a Cabrini Green old-timer (Colman Domingo) exposes Anthony to the tragically horrific nature of the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony begins to explore these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, unknowingly opening a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifyingly viral wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny.”
