Critic Reviews:

If a vengeful spirit is supposedly summoned by saying its name five times while looking in a mirror, maybe the one thing you should NOT do is say its name five times while looking in a mirror.


Making a direct sequel to the original film is certainly a bold decision, and gives Candyman the chance to be every bit as tragic and terrifying as the legacy held by the original 1992 masterpiece.


DaCosta cleverly refines and develops Candyman as the expression of rage against racism in the era of Black Lives Matter, a supernaturally weaponised scream against Jim Crow and its aftermath; her film investigates Candyman as a symptom of inequality and bad housing and the consequent phenomenon of gentrification.
