Tenants in Chicago’s housing projects are once again terrorized by the supernatural killer Candyman in this chilling, socially-relevant sequel to the acclaimed original 1992 film. Complete with stunning set design and inventive kills, director and co-writer Nia DaCosta masterfully expands the mythology of the iconic urban-folk horror legend. – RL
“A genuinely terrifying and artful horror film that speaks with a bell-clear voice to the current moment, the product of centuries of racist power structures.” – Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times
