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

Helen and Bernadette are doing research for a paper and Helen gets completely obsessed with the story of Candyman. Things just go off the rails when Tony Todd finally shows up and Helen is accused of murder. Tony Todd rocks his role. I've watched this many times before but not in a long time. Still enjoyable. I can write it five times but I doubt I would want to stand in front of the mirror and sa... 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 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

" 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"

" Watched October 16th Rating: 2nd time watching all the way through, though I've seen bits and pieces several times over. Still so entertaining. Probably the only Clive Barker movie I really love- it's got so much character, theatricality, beautiful sets, interesting characters. Candyman is a bit goofy at times, but it does its best to take you on a journey, to tell you a story and do it with style. It doesn't feel disjointed the way some horror flicks do, jumping from scary scene to scary sce"
