You know, if you cut out the political agenda bs, it's not a bad movie. Not scary and messes up the Candyman lore, but I kept watching. Loved the little bit at the end, which up'ed it to the 2 rating.
They call him Candyman because the movie's so boring you'll want to leave the theater and go to the concession stand and buy some Reese Peanut Butter Cups, some Malteesers, Sour Patch Kids, Malted Milk, Coffee Crisp, Smarties, Kit Kat, Mars, Crispy Crunch, Jersey Milk, Sweet Marie, Mr. Big, Three Musketeers, Aero, Mirage, and if you can find them Special Crisp and Choco-Lotto. Candy is good. Just don't get too fat or Candyman will slice you open like a pig.
I fell asleep - was that boring
As a horror fan, I must say that I was very disappointed by the remake or sequel. The story made no sense, because now we have multiple Candymen, including the original, and the best one: Tony Todd. There was nothing scary in this movie. In fact, the new Candyman was upstaged by 'White" evil cops. It is so ridiculous when the cops were portrayed as more evil and scary than the Candyman! The new Candyman did not have the charisma of Tony Todd's rendition. How about concentrating on telling a scary story with good actors and less on the whole SJW/woke stuff?
This is the first one I have watched, I loved the movie. Kept you on the edge of your seat. It is excellent, like to see it again!
Ha! The original is no classic and this one somehow manages to be worse! Give this one the hook and watch something good instead.
Glad I watched the original before I saw this one. This movie was brilliant, amazing and the cinematography blew me away.. Bravo for the message it gave and Bravo for the bravery in showing that you can take a classic movie and add to it with flavor and class…
what a let-down - poor script, poor acting, not scary at all IN FACT a horrible movie -worst one I've seen in 2021.
best story line
Too much damn living room talk and not enough killing, weird af so half the time I was confused as to what’s going on, just No!!!! Try again
Wildly innaccurate and surprisingly violent biopic of Sammy Davis Jr. It was his eye, not his hand!
Can't believe how horrible this was - save your money
With Jordan Peele on board the whole Candyman situation will be whitey's fault.
