Jordan Peele’s Candyman, billed as the “spiritual successor” to the 1992 slasher classic starring Tony Todd, is undeniably one of the most anticipated horror movies of the year. We previously didn’t know too terribly much about the plot of this followup movie, other than the hook-handed boogeyman (and presumably, his bees) returns to the same area of Chicago, only there’s a twist. Gentrification has taken root, so the housing project (Cabrini-Green) that he once haunted no longer exists. It doesn’t sound like that’s getting the Candyman down, but maybe we’ll have dueling villains here. Peele could probably pull that off. Judge for yourself with this trailer.
Oh, and don’t say the Candyman’s name five times! People keep doing that.
