Movie Reviews

  • though it delivers some entertaining comedy and bloodshed, "Candyman" is clunky and overly instructive in its metaphorical purpose — killing subtext as often as it does anyone foolish enough to summon the eponymous spirit
    3 of 5 by Kambole Campbell [Empire Magazine ]
  • this "spiritual sequel" to the 1992 Bernard Rose horror film artfully weaves together supernatural-powered genre chills with some decidedly real-world truths
    Review rate : B+ by Kate Erbland [IndieWire ]
  • the new film, which is both a sequel and an expansion of the world created in the first one, is fresh, relevant, smart and scary; The way director and co-writer Nia DaCosta brings the story to life is powerful and weirdly beautiful
    4 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • it's an ambitious and haunting reclamation realized by Nia DaCosta's bold vision, blending horrors real and supernatural
    4 of 5 by Meagan Navarro [Bloody Disgusting ]
  • from the opening moments of Nia DaCosta’s gory yet strikingly beautiful and socially relevant “Candyman,” it’s clear we’re in for an especially haunting and just plain entertaining thrill ride
    3.5 of 4 by Richard Roeper [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • director Nia DaCosta’s new spin on the 1992 horror film is an act of homage that expands and updates the story in clever ways; With Jordan Peele's support, DaCosta has made one of the most original, beautiful and savagely satirical films of the year
    4 of 5 by Charlotte O'Sullivan [London Evening Standard ]
  • Candyman delivers a fresh take by flipping the perspective of the original, almost showing a mirror image as it continues the tradition of campfire ghost stories that acquire new dimensions and details as they are retold across generations
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • as an example of scary story/social critique, it's a cut above Peele's "Us", but far less incisive than his Oscar-winning debut, "Get Out"
    by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post ]
  • a slick, macabre and very sophisticated sequel-reboot for the Candyman myth; DaCosta cleverly refines and develops Candyman as the expression of rage against racism in the era of Black Lives Matter; This is a very tasty confection of satire and scorn
    4 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • "Candyman"' is a genuinely terrifying, artful horror film that speaks to current moment; Nia DaCosta crafts an eerie cinematic world that is anchored by a deeply harrowing and sorrowful performance by Abdul-Mateen
    3.5 of 4 by Katie Walsh [Trubune News Service ]
  • "Candyman" will haunt you long after the credits roll; DaCosta's restraint keeps it interesting. There's an elegance to her storytelling, always giving us just enough to keep us moving forward without signaling too much of what's to come
    by Robert Morast [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • "Candyman" is haunting and visually striking; While introducing a few arcs it doesn’t fully explore, "Candyman" is replete with haunting imagery, disconcerting horror, and thought-provoking themes
    3.5 of 5 by Mae Abdulbaki [ScreenRant ]
