Critic Reviews:

Upon its release, Candyman was criticized as being irresponsible and racist. Certainly its casting of the quintessential bogeyman as vengeful, black and obsessed with a white woman gives credence to this criticism. And yet, the overarching narrative isn’t quite so simple.

The urban legend about the hook-handed terror was a radical, sophisticated examination of race, history, and love that feels as powerful and essential today as when it was released more than 25 years ago.

The ending is somewhat of a shocker, if you don’t see it coming. Nevertheless, it f*cking rocks and not in an upbeat sort of way, which is just the way I like them.
