‘Candyman’: New Featurette Released for Nia DaCosta’s Horror Sequel

Candyman is an iconic horror film that is about to get a modern update.

As seen in the official trailer, Candyman follows visual artist Anthony McCoy and his partner gallery director Brianna Cartwright. The two move into a luxury condo in the newly gentrified Cabrini-Green neighborhood in Chicago. For as long as residents can remember, the housing projects in the neighborhood were terrorized by a word-of-mouth ghost story about a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to repeat his name five times into a mirror. Anthony begins to use the Candyman legend in his art with violent consequences as the past meets the present.

The original Candyman was released in 1992 and became a cult classic with two sequels. This film is a direct sequel to the original film and stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Teyonah Parris, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, and Colman Domingo. It is directed by Nia DaCosta and written by Jordan Peele, Win Rosenfeld, and DaCosta.

I am a nurse and dedicated nerd from Boston, MA. When I'm not at work, I'm rewatching old favorites like Supernatural or discovering my new obsessions (too many to count!). When not fangirling, I can be found reading, writing, or listening to a true crime podcast. You can find me on Twitter @juleswritesblog for more nerdy nonsense.
