Jordan Peele’s production of Candyman is one of the most hotly anticipated horror movies of 2020, but fans hoping for greatness may be sorely disappointed–if what Mr. H has heard is true. While everything in the video above must be taken with a grain of salt, the film critic and academic has a stable of reliable sources and a sterling reputation for reporting the truth.
So what’s the word on the upcoming Candyman reboot? Mr. H’s info comes following a recent test screening. Highlights include the screeners’ overall reaction, plot points, and Tony Todd’s participation. If you enjoy seeing a movie knowing as little as possible, avoid this video like the plague! Many potential spoilers are contained within.
Candyman is directed by Nia DaCosta and stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Tony Todd, and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett. Look for it in US theaters beginning June 12th.
