"I am the writing on the wall, the whisper in the classroom! Without these things, I am nothing. So now, I must shed innocent blood."

Based on Clive Barker's short story The Forbidden, Candyman is a horror movie which combines elements of cinematic ghost stories, archetypal slasher/stalker circumstances and urban legends - and it is a rather solid combination at that. While the orig... read more

Certain films have a really strange feel about them and Candyman falls under the umbrella. Todd is stunning as Candyman.

A good movie

Honestly, it has been ages since I have seen this flick but I still can remember it vividly. Even though I’m not really a huge fan of horror flicks, there are still a couple of movies in this genre which had a real deep impact on me and this movie was definitely one of them. Indeed, even though the set-up is pretty simple (‘if you call Candyman 5 times in front of a mirror, he would come up an... read more

Movie Reviews (801-850) (50 movies items)

" Based upon Clive Barker's short story. This is a film filled with memorable imagery and Tony Todd is enormously effective as Candyman as is Virginia Madsen as the woman investigating the old myth. It has an authentic feel due to it's ghetto scenes and while it has stupid convenient behavior from characters chanting the name of the killer so that they can get killed off it is hard not to say this film feels like a filmed old urban legend. It may not be the smartest written horror movie but luck"
