STEVEN 👻’s review published on Letterboxd:
Candyman was a gem for the 90s audience, and Candyman will be another gem today. I can't put into words how surreal this viewing experience was, sitting in a jam packed theater for the first time in a long time with franchise fans new and old. This cast was magnificent; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Teyonah Parris, and Colman Domingo effectively bringing the urban legend back to life, with themes surrounding race and social class utilized in the best way since the 1992 film. Even the kills were refreshing; some of the best, unique and original death sequences I've ever seen in a slasher film. Tony Todd's return left me speechless, and with chills, and I'm obsessed with the way they reworked the concept to explore his character and the overall lore through generations.
Phenomenal legacy sequel that further goes to show that slashers are making their well-deserved comeback, and will leave this decade one of the strongest the horror genre's ever seen.
