On this edition of the The Global Film Show report, Editor-In-Chief Diego Andaluz gives his quick thoughts on Candyman. Joined by numerous global contributors, they’ll discuss their in-depth thoughts on the technical and thematic strengths and shortcomings of the film, among other notable highlights, on an upcoming episode of the podcast.

A decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, Anthony and his partner move into a loft in the now gentrified Cabrini. A chance encounter with an old-timer exposes Anthony to the true story behind Candyman.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

CANDYMAN deserves to be known as a modern horror classic. While it would’ve benefitted from a longer runtime, Nia DaCosta’s brilliant direction cultivates a chilling atmosphere that establishes her as one of the most exciting studio horror filmmakers of our time.
