Candyman. Candyman. Candyman. Candyma-You get the point. This week's episode is a Special Edition dedicated to the the new Candyman sequel. There is a lot to unpack in the movie and we cover it all. The original is remains terrifying to this day; how does the new one hold up. What did we think of the kills in the movie? Social commentary has always been a big part of horror and Candyman is no different. How effective were they in delivering their message?And as always with Special Editions: SPOILER WARNINGThere are actually two previous sequels to 1992's Candyman. How well does this one incorporate the lore of the original? We also discuss whether a person has to see the first movie before diving into the 2021 version. And if you have not seen the Tony Todd film, can you really appreciate this one? Or does going in fresh allow a fresh perspective?Last week, we talked about a bloody movie with little violence. We talk about the kills in Candyman and the interesting direction the film took with them. Our opinions were varied and it may surprise you who enjoyed what the movie presented and how it was done.Race was a big factor in the original Candyman and it remains so in the latest incarnation. The question is not if the discussion about race would be in the movie. The question is, would it be done effectively. We talk about how the movie handled the issue and whether it will resonate with audiences. We all have differing opinions on how well Candyman got its message across.Ultimately, Candyman is a gruesome horror movie.  The original is a classic that has been a favorite of the horror community for decades. In other words, the new one has a lot to live up to. Does it succeed? How scary was the movie?Adventures in Movies! is a part of the Morbidly Beautiful Podcast Network.
