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 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

"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"

Bml93's Film Experiences for 2018 (140 movies items)

" - Rewatch | Second time Candyman is actually a pretty great horror film. It's a little corny, but at the same time it's very bleak and it features some rather unsettling imagery. It does a lot of interesting things with Virginia Madsen's character and I love that there's no immediate triumph here. Madsen delivers a solid performance, but the scene stealer is however Tony Todd as the title character. His look is very creepy in and of itself, but it's his soothing voice that delivers the most chi"

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"
