Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) is a visual artist who moves into a luxurious condo in Cabrini-Green with Brianna (Teyonah Parris), his partner and a gallery director. Just as Anthony feels like his career is stagnating, he meets William Burke (Colman Domingo), an old resident of Cabrini-Green, who tells him of the terrifying tale of Candyman. Desperate to cling on to his relevance in the art world, Anthony decides to utilize the grisly details of this tragedy to inspire his works, unknowingly setting into motion another deadly cycle of violence.

This movie was a pleasant surprise for me by bringing the Candyman mythos full circle. This is not a reboot, but a continuation of the original story. It includes (unfortunately) issues that we were dealing with then and still do today. Jordan Peele is definitely associating his name with very interesting horror story telling. Glad to have this in my collection.
Jordan Peele ceases to amaze me he has the Midas touch when it comes to the horror genre it touches on subject that are relevant in society today but also stays true to the original but they also did something different and it worked and it was great to see Tony Todd at the end
Amazing follow up movie to the original. Watched this twice in theaters and had to buy the 4K when released and I totally noticed things I didnt notice in the theater!
A timely reboot/continuation of the original Candyman film series from director Nia DaCosta. The film honors what was previously established while building on the mythology.
The sound and picture look great on the disc, with the director having an eye for intriguing visuals. A must-add for any horror lovers’ collection.
