In present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, Anthony and his partner move into a loft in the now gentrified Cabrini. A chance encounter with an old-timer exposes Anthony to the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to use these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, he unknowingly opens a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifying wave of violence.
If the mere act of saying one word a few times summons a terrifying killer with a hook for a hand, you probably want to quit saying that word. There are so many other words to say! And, yet, the characters in the trailer for Nia DaCosta new Candyman movie simply cannot get enough of saying the guy’s name. Go ahead and try it yourself: Candyman, Candyman, Candyman, Candyman, Candyman. OK, fine, it’s a little infectious. But, at least in the world of the movie, it’ll probably get you killed.
Director Nia DaCosta’s fresh take on the horror icon and “spiritual sequel” to the original stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Teyonah Parris, Colman Domingo and returning star Vanessa Estelle Williams and hits theaters August 27, 2021.
