One of the best horror films of the 90’s is Clive Barker’s Candyman starring Virginia Madsen, Tony Todd, Xander Berkeley, and directed by Bernard Rose.
If you’re a fan of the film, like all of us here at Dread Central, then you’ll be pleased to know that the film (may) be getting a 4K restoration on Blu-ray in the near future.
Tony Todd passed along the news over on Twitter and you can check out the tweet below. I don’t mean to doubt the man, but in all fairness, this is not an official announcement yet, so until then, make sure to take this news with a grain of salt and bees. Like a lot of bees.
The film was written and directed by Bernard Rose from a screenplay based on The Forbidden by Clive Barker who also served as executive producer. It stars Virginia Madsen, Tony Todd, and Xander Berkeley.

Skeptical graduate student Helen Lyle (Virginia Madsen) befriends Anne-Marie McCoy (Vanessa Williams) while researching superstitions in a housing project on Chicago’s Near North Side. From Anne-Marie, Helen learns about the Candyman (Tony Todd), a knife-wielding figure of urban legend that some of her neighbors believe to be responsible for a recent murder. After a mysterious man matching the Candyman’s description begins stalking her, Helen comes to fear that the legend may be all too real.
