Candyman (2021)

September 3, 2021

Who can take a franchise, sprinkle it with dew, and get whole new generations buzzing about a gutted corpse or two?  Executive producer Jordan Peele can, because he mixes love for a 1992 Tony Todd slasher with the inflammatory racial politics of Get Out and Us.  Is it performance art or possession that drives a desperate Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman) to strap on the iconic hook and paint the gentrified Cabrini-Green neighborhood red in 2019?  You can summon the thoughts of the Now Playing hosts anytime you want when you Donate for Candyman today!
