October Film Marathon – Day Twenty Nine: Candyman (1992)


Welcome to my October Film Marathon. Each day I will be watching a Halloween/Autumnal themed film and will be posting a review.

Today is the 29th of October and I will be reviewing one of my all time favourite films, Candyman!


I think Candyman is genius. It combines a terrifying horror villain, with a touch of gore, an investigation, and an exploration on the lives of lower class African Americans. Intrigued by local legends, Helen investigates the myths and superstitions surrounding the one-armed Candyman. However, she confronts her worst nightmare when a series of murders start taking place. I really do find this film terrifying, the idea of the Candyman shakes me to the core and really makes me want to say his name five times in a mirror, but I am too scared to do so.
