A horror film with intelligence and creativity

"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

A good movie

Honestly, it has been ages since I have seen this flick but I still can remember it vividly. Even though Iโ€™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 (โ€˜if you call Candyman 5 times in front of a mirror, he would come up an... read more

"21-10-02 TUBI/REWATCH OLDIES-STILL GOODIES One person: TONY TODD!!! He really made this movie. It would not have been as scary without him. And it still stands the test of time - it is still scary to me. And it is an artistic film. There are so many great scenes and beautifully horrific they are too. There are tons of great still photos of this movie on the internet. AND- As always the most famous line: CANDYMAN, CANDYMAN, CANDYMAN, CANDYMAN, CANDYMANNNNNN!!!!! โ™ฅ "

" Date: 8/26/2021 Viewed: Blu-ray (Scream Factory) Re-Watch Note: With the new Candyman movie coming out this weekend, I decided to rewatch the original movie. I have only seen the theatrical cut and never the unrated version of the film. The first Candyman movie is still a great movie, and it was nice to watch scenes that I have never seen before. The psychologist's death scene is way more brutal and gross compare to how it is shown in the R-Rated Cut. The atmosphere and the camera shots in Ca"

"Still one of the best 90s horror films and certainly among the more unique of the bunch. The score, milieu and themes really elevate this. "

" Date: 10/5/2019 Viewed: Netflix Rewatch Note: I haven't seen this movie since I was 10 years old and I still think the movie is great. I love the story and the atmosphere that this movie has. Tony Todd does an amazing job on being a creepy and disturbing killer in my opinion. Every time when Candyman is on screen, I still get the chills. Not to mention, everyone else in this movie does a great job on acting as well. I highly recommend this movie! "

"Quite possibly the movie that made me decide horror was my thing. Though I already had a profound love for it, Tony Todd's performance, coupled with Philip Glass' score and the visceral imagery made the macabre beautifully artistic. It was at this moment that I began to see beyond the superficial in horror. "

Great Black (African American) Horror Movies (11 movies items)

"Quite possibly the epitome of black horror icons, the titular Candyman (played with great presence by Tony Todd)remains as potent a character as he ever was. Not only that, but director Bernard Rose's adaptation of the Clive Barker short story gave the material a prodigious social heft with the added weight of America's sketchy racial issues. Despite its incisive take on white privilege, poverty, and the social divide, the film never feels preachy or heavy-handed. Instead, it retains it's effe"
