Description

Oscar® winner Jordan Peele and filmmaker Nia DaCosta unleashes a fresh take on the blood-chilling urban legend: Candyman. For decades the housing projects of Chicago's Cabrini-Green neighborhood were terrorized by a ghost story about a supernatural killer summoned by repeating his name five times into a mirror. In the present day, artist Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) moves into the neighborhood, now gentrified beyond recognition. Anxious to maintain his status in the art world, he begins to explore the macabre history of Candyman, which unknowingly unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifying wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny.

    If they keep up with this racist, woke, liberal agenda trash, America will never be equal and unified. If you are living 2022 and actually believe that all white people are racists and all black people are just innocent victims, you need an education very badly. This pathetic movie is nothing but a fake reality that liberals want us to believe is real despite the fact that it is nothing like actual reality. The actors, writers, and director of this movie should be ashamed of themselves. If you’ve watched and endured the hate and racism in this movie and agree with any of it’s unrealistic depictions of race relations in America, grow up. Wise up. Educate yourself. Watch this crap at your own risk. You have been warned.
  • Great Movie...Ignore the review bombing...

    I'm blown away by this moive and how well its done. An "Urban Horror" Film that isn't stupid and is based on real world ideas, even though it is dealt with through fiction; it makes the horror more visceral. The fact that so many felt a need to review bomb it in such a dishonest way speaks volumes for how good it actually is!
  • This movie is an abomination

    I first would like to say that this movie does touch on the reality of racism. I doubt if the right wing racist will like it (Suburban Republican Right Wing Extremist Racist Privileged). Jordan Peele has destroyed the Candyman franchise. There’s so much he changes about the Candyman mythos. This supposed to be a direct sequel to the 1st one but it’s an absolute failure at it.

    I hate this woke crap. Jordan Peele is a racist. Blacks blaming whites for all of their problems through the ENTIRE movie - it’s relentless. They take no responsibility for their actions or part they play in brutalizing their communities. If you want change - be the change.
  • Completely racist

    It’s not Horror its HORRIBLE!! If you watch the original, it’s a love story gone wrong between 2 ppl of different races; although it is race included, this version is over the top. Jordan Peele should stick w/ comedy!!

    When it all said and down Jordan Peele has a great vision. Although this movie does not best the original it is a testament to the foundation it set up for this film.

    I find this movie very confusing and very tough to follow. The original was much better. You can skip this one.
  • Brilliant modern continual

    This movie seems pretty divisive but I loved it. It held true to the themes of the original without going into the cheap slasher territory the sequels went. It’s an atmospheric slow burn and it’s not always comfortable to watch. I think its lack of cheap thrills turned some people off but it’s a quality film.
