Review – Candyman (spoiler free)

The original Candyman has always been what I consider a perfect horror film. I have watched it countless times as I am sure many of you reading this have, and there is absolutely nothing I would change. I love everything about it. The sequels however are another story, while Candyman Farewell to the Flesh makes an honest attempt at being a serious sequel, it is missing the magic that the first one captured so effortlessly. The less said about Candyman 3 Day of the Dead the better. So now almost 30 years later, thanks to the producing clout of Jordan Peele and the stellar direction of Nia DaCosta we are blessed with a new Candyman film. And yes, blessed is the appropriate term to use here because as it turns out, this film is superb. Much like it’s predecessor this is a film about ghosts…and so much more.
