Critic Reviews for Candyman
Viewers of the new Candyman movie get overblown discourse instead of genuine horror.
Instead of projecting the monster onto an outside other, that gaze is directed inward and outward simultaneously... Fear of the monster is fear of one's own tail, one's own reflection.
With its shadow puppetry, sophisticated reclamation of the Candyman legend and slick, confident filmmaking, even for those not thrilled by the idea of horror cinema more generally, it is hard to deny that Candyman is a massive and exciting step forward
It's in the "Get Out" level category of relevant horror.
Acute and skillfully made, "Candyman" is also pointedly political.
