45 days if,you dont like it return it full refund,so click the link below go to ridge.com,johns use promo code john save yourself,10 off your ridge wallet and thank you,once again to ridgewallet for sponsoring,this video i do appreciate it all right,now here we go all right so dont say,his name,just saying,[Music],so candyman is a sequel to the 1992,movie candyman well damn thats twice i,only say that because theres a mirror,in my camera yeah all you youtubers out,there reviewing this movie odds are,theres a mirror in your camera too so i,guess were all equally [ __ ] but it,looks like candymans doing what a lot,of movies horror in particular is doing,now just like yeah there was that one,movie that was perfect and it crushed it,and then a bunch of sequels that oh,they didnt live up so now all these,decades later this is the true sequel to,the originals this is,all you need usually having the same,title is the original just to confuse,people so candyman stars yaya abdulmatin,ii he plays a struggling artist who gets,wrapped up into the candyman lore and,starts going down that rabbit hole and,candyman starts coming back and killings,happened and candyman the cast i thought,did a great job any of the shortcomings,in the script and there are quite a few,the cast does their best to make it work,its not on them that yaya abdulmatin,martin ii was great as the lead tiona,paris who played monica rambo and won,division shes in this movie i thought,she was really good and a character that,really stands out as the comic relief,character but not overly comic relief,uses sarcasm to make light of a,situation but also knows when its just,time to get the [ __ ] out nathan stewart,jared hes a standout in this movie what,i liked about this movie from the get-go,i was like its beautiful it visually is,amazing i thought director nia decosta,did a great job at making a visually,compelling movie here whether its the,opening credits or any scenes with,mirrors mirrors being a huge part of,this movie anytime there was a mirror i,caught myself looking in the mirror,looking for candyman looking back or,creeping in the background or something,sometimes he was there sometimes he,wasnt and any of the candyman killings,happening i thought they used mirrors,really well where candyman is invisible,but hes killing people but anytime its,in front of a mirror in the reflection,you do see candy man i thought that was,really cool and it took me back to,nightmare on elm street where if,someones getting killed by freddy,krueger in the dream you see it,happening but in the real world its,like theres an invisible wraith and,this girl is not why is she on the,ceiling and they use that last point,about the mirrors and the killings to,kind of segue into what didnt work so,much for me and thats the fact that the,original candyman i cant help but,compare this movie to the original candy,man because i feel like this movie tried,to do what the original candyman did but,the original candyman movie just did it,better i like the fact that in this,movie visually and in terms of tone it,looks like they attempted to bring the,same tone from the original candyman,movie here on screen again in 2021,thats the fact that its not a cliched,slasher flick blood fest its actually a,compelling investigative character movie,only thing is the original candyman puts,the word compelling into that,description this movie is kind of a slow,crawl slow grind thats just not as,interesting to me because its all about,nuance its about execution you know,virginia madsens character in the,original candyman the 1992 candy man,shes going down this rabbit hole she,says the name five times in the mirror,and then she starts passing out and when,she wakes up people are dead is candyman,killing people is she just blacking out,and killing people herself you dont,know its a cool thing to think about,its interesting to peel back those,layers while youre watching the movie,peel back more layers after youre done,watching the movie youre laying in bed,like well i cant sleep so let me just,unravel this movie in my head this movie,does none of that from the first,candyman killing im like oh yeah its,invisible candyman killing people and,you see him in the reflection,the end of mystery as cool as the mirror,effects of invisible candyman killing,people but you can see his reflection in,the mirror was i was like oh well no,mystery then its just kind of,thats whats happening also with social,commentary this movie seems so concerned,about having its social commentary but,you cant have anyone miss it so its,gonna have zero subtlety whatsoever,social commentary in a movie is not a,bad thing many movies have done it and,stuck the landing the original candyman,being one of them but i felt the,original candyman did it in a way where,it was cleverly woven into the plot i,mean [ __ ] you could write a thesis about,what makes effective social commentary,in a film,but if you want to boil it down to a,sentence because you know why not its,fun to do i would say it wouldnt be,inaccurate to say that effective social,commentary in a movie has to do with the,subtlety or brevity,of the illustration,versus how hard it hits this is one of,the ways i feel the original candyman,absolutely excel virginia madsens,character talks about how her overpriced,apartments and the apartments in cabrini,green have the same layout because they,were the same apartments then they,remind you of that fact by location you,see her apartment and the apartments in,cabrini green maybe you notice it the,first time you watch the movie maybe,its the second or third time but you,will eventually be like oh wow those are,the same layout look at that and it,sticks with you a lot more when you let,the audience get there on their own its,like inception not the movie the concept,this new candyman movie would just,rather tell you some things like oh yeah,gentrification happened in cabrini green,moving on i guess thats a big problem i,had with this movie in a world where a,picture is worth a thousand words this,candyman movie would rather use a,thousand words to paint a picture than,show you and when it does want to show,you stuff it shows you the wrong stuff,it shows you too much and then ruins the,nuance the point is in both situations,it lacks nuance and its not just the,script and the film lacking nuance its,also character development there were,moments in this movie where it was like,huh we need to have a backstory or a,past so well show a flashback of some,sort like theres this one scene where,this character gets a childhood,flashback thats like oh thats a,tragedy that happened with her father,also,did you just kind of not have that and,then at a point like hey she needs a,childhood flashback so you have this one,flashback and then thats that yeah the,third act of this movie happens and its,like they were like hey heres a slow,crawl movie about investigating candyman,and candyman killing people who say his,name in the mirror okay hey its the,last act so lets get crazy they just,throw some [ __ ] at the wall to see if it,sticks and i was like,alright i guess,well its more horror movie-ish kind of,conflicts and tone w

man,i love tony todd uh and,you know i saw this on my one of my,dads vhs tapes and i was like whoa this,is cool uh i heard there were two,sequels,theyre bad i won theyre better i,watched them i have not seen those uh,maybe i wont but uh you know i was,uh kind of excited when i heard that,candyman was going to be me too you know,coming back,and i didnt know whether it was going,to be like a reboot a continuation maybe,a combination of all the things,um,and we have um,was it jordan peele thats involved a,little bit,one of the writers and producers uh but,this was actually uh uh co-written and,directed by nia de costa uh so its not,a jordan peel completely youve got uh,her um style in it and um,we just got back from it and ill say,uh,i wanted to like it,way more than i am me too,like i was super,like i was super excited whenever tony,todd was like cassid on this i was like,you heard that i heard that too yeah i,was like okay you guys are youre,original in the whole film yes,this is going to be amazing okay i want,to talk about that,im ready for this,but sadly um,uh i know you like candyman a lot joe so,tell tell us you know why you like the,original and and how do you feel about,this one uh for me i love horror movies,i would 10 out of 10 times i would,always watch horror movies whenever i,saw a horror like uh the candyman and,like when i was a little kid it was kind,of different like his was like it wasnt,like a slash or anything like everyone,else this was kind of like its own thing,like psychological thriller thing and it,made me scared like im not supposed,uh what is it the ouija board and you,wont do candy man well i didnt know,you wouldnt do candyman joe lets go in,my bathroom right now,turn the lights off they didnt follow,the rules in this right dont have that,lights off,thats bloody mary yeah oh okay whatever,so yeah bloody mary needs to fight candy,is like that like kind of like growing,up like kind of like like,before that terrible movie,like thats just,that [ __ ] i was like oh that scares me,so,did you do did anybody try to get you to,do it at a party i remember when [ __ ],came out people tried to get us to do it,my aunt tried to she like pulled me in,the bathroom i was like no,i dont remember i know people tried to,get me to do i think i ran out too like,a coward alex did you do it with me oh,yeah definitely we did the bloody mary,we did the candyman thing,and there was always somebody because it,was a setup right it was always a setup,because someone knew better we you know,it was like a babysitter that was older,than us but i just watched the movie i,always wondered where it came from the,[ __ ] out of us when we were saying it,thats thats the whole ritual of the,thing and so of course i got to,experience that and so i didnt have a,whole lot of expectations coming into,this uh i you know i dont remember the,first one as fondly as you i do remember,liking the first one and but,new horror movies just dont hit me the,way that they used to uh and so my,expectations were really low for this,one,uh and i you know it was it was it was,there,heres my main problem with candyman and,i dont really know how to articulate it,well see if you agree with me joe uh,this candyman is much different than the,original candyman in the sense that this,is a,huge,metaphor this is a vehicle for,racial justice for,uh white versus black for police,brutality,oppression gentrification,and i think that this was a little,heavy-handed in this film,in the sense that in this film,all white people are bad,you know its candyman,does not and then candyman is so kind of,like a herald of black people and kills,only white people right in this i think,if we go through the film theres,theres no,and and,heavy-handed message and this candyman,is like a story of revenge and they tie,it very,uh you know closely to that and and i,think that,there was,it was really heavy-handed in that way,when i was hoping to see a little bit,more of the [ __ ],yeah theres the messages there but i,wanted more of the [ __ ] no i a 100,agree with you like i went in there for,a horror movie kind of like a,psychological like the first one but,this one kind of like,turned up the message way too much i was,like look i get it yeah like the first,one i think,kind of had a message it was kind of,subtle its there but it was still,horror this year,majority of it was,was the message and i dont think they,utilized tony todd as much,because his voice is,oh i love tony todds voice,so,i dont think they did him justice in,this one they could have done more with,them this one just like ah hes here you,called him,youre dead yeah and because its so,over the top with the message and,because the people in the film do stuff,to make it towards like theyre,bad and they need to be killed and you,know its its it goes a little bit into,parody territory almost,you know denigrating the message here,you know a little bit and and then it,commits one other sin,is that its,not scary,it i was not you know its not scary at,all very unscary to me,uh and i was hoping for more and so if,youre gonna go on scary thats fine uh,you know you you need to have charisma,you know cause candyman was a little bit,like freddy krueger you know yes this,idea that the more you believe and the,more people believe in candy man the,more powerful he is and hes joined me,and hes just [ __ ] freaky this,candyman is,its much different well have to talk,about spoilers,why this candy mans different but hes,unscary the presence isnt quite there,these these kills just kind of happen in,them thats it uh much like the original,but,i will say that the director has a keen,eye and i love the cinematography it,opens,in a city thats upside down,disorienting you in the fog it just,looks great and a lot of the shots,looked good um unfortunately it was,unscary and the message was really,heavy-handed and you know kind of,eye-rolling in the end yeah what about,you the focus i think was just was off,and,um,you know there was a lot of the,the the characters that we know as,candyman the the horror elements were,were focused on a lot less than other,aspects of the movie and i think that,the movie suffers for that i love horror,movies that play with mirrors that play,with shadows they have always youre,always looking in the mirror youre like,looking around you see something go,behind you turn around its not there i,love that stuff in movies and you know,its trophy but i mean i think it can be,done really well and theres a little,bit of that here they just they,constantly showed what they could do,because i think that once the movie,actually started getting going it,actually there was some tension there,there was some crazy i mean you see in,some of the trailers that his body is,kind of like breaking down and theres,some like body horror stuff so theres,some tense moments there and then it,just goes away and it never comes back,and it was so,upsetting because i think that until,like the last three minutes right

Candyman Review

if youre out here looking for candy man,you ask me,stay away,candyman more than earns its place as a,decades-later sequel while director nia,decostas modern update of a black,horror landmark certainly pays homage to,the existing saga it also digs deeper,into the mythos unearthing volatile,ideas that had always lurked just,beneath the series surface the result is,inventive introspective and above all,unsettling,this is where it all began,lets do your candyman,the fourth candyman movie co-written by,decosta wynne rosenfield and jordan,peele takes many of its cues from prior,entries in the series and not just from,characters and events shown on screen,the story makes the fascinating decision,to lean into some of the more,socio-economic ideas explored in the,previous movies while still treating the,candyman himself as a supernatural,entity summoned by ritual it explores,how the myth was kept alive by the,residents of chicagos cabrini green,housing project in ways that both mirror,the first film and in ways that,skillfully subvert it speaking of the,titular candyman this movie finally,approaches him as something more complex,than a vicious albeit sympathetic,monster whose narrative purpose is,ironically to be slain once more in the,previous three movies from the 90s the,candyman was a vengeful honeybee,infested spirit who represented,unconfronted sins from a century prior,but the new film makes the case that,those sins never truly ended the past,can only stay hidden for so long and,once the mirror ritual makes its way,back out into the world its resurgence,is a treat candyman is by no means a,mystery to the audience as decosta,rightfully treats the mere presence of,honeybees as ominous but the films,violence is deliciously mysterious it,can be shocking and stark and it can,also be tongue-in-cheek depending on,whos at the other end of the meat hook,but what separates it from prior entries,is that the kills are rarely shown from,the perspective of the people who summon,candyman initially the violence is,presented from an outsiders point of,view with victims left at the mercy of,an unseen force as we watch helplessly,from a distance the film withholds its,slasher moments for about as long as the,original did meanwhile it bides its time,with a creeping slow burn exploration of,spaces and the way people and their,stories are shaped by their environments,it does much of this exploration through,its protagonist anthony who was,kidnapped as a baby by the candyman in,the 1992 original yahya abdulmatine ii,plays this all grown up version of him,which finds him living as an artist in a,gentrified chicago neighborhood with his,girlfriend brianna played by tiana paris,in an interesting twist the candyman,myth as well as what happened to him as,a baby had been hidden from anthony once,he discovers more about it though he,inadvertently falls into the same cycle,as the series other protagonists whose,investigations were often from an,outsiders perspective abdul mateens,portrayal is no doubt sympathetic as,theres a sense of desperation to,anthonys search but he also crafts a,character who reeks of a familiar,outsider arrogance at first the candyman,story and its painful legacy are simply,source material for him to exploit the,film in key moments critiques this,approach to art and turns the camera on,itself as if to question the purpose of,telling stories of black pain in the,first place dicasa and peel are the,first black storytellers to put their,stamp on candyman and they bring a,thoughtfulness to the material which,previous entries lacked both narratively,and visually anthonys investigations,into the candymans story lead to an,unexpected conclusion that feels both,satisfying and uniquely bone chilling,without erasing what came before it the,film pushes the character and his,mythology in a fascinating new direction,which not only has the potential to,re-establish him as a fixture of pop,culture but which acts as a vital course,correction reclaiming who gets to tell,the story of blackness in american,cinema,no,i dare you,part homage part modern update the new,candyman film by nia de casa is a,creeping descendant to a violent past,which refuses to stay hidden like prior,films in the series it adds new wrinkles,to the urban legend but it also remixes,the mythology in ways that are both,surprising and completely fitting for,more check out our reviews of sung chi,and the legend of the ten rings and the,richer nightmare of the wolf and for,everything else stick with ign,he has purpose for you,new to the neighborhood,you should say candyman say his name

CandyMan (2021) Is A Woke Slasher Now?

trash,you know what,that might be a little,harsh,semi trash,beautifully shot trash,well acted trash,fake woke trash,this movie was anticipated for so long,to be so disappointing,and i dont want to hear about no,spiritual sequel,[Music],hi you guys welcome back to my channel,its tara here with another struggle,review here to discuss candyman,not the beautifully,cult classic,1992 version no im talking about this,brand spanking new,waited for so long 2021 version,fun fact,i specifically,started a youtube channel just so i,could review this movie because i was so,excited,before i get into why i feel like this,movie was so disappointing,why i feel like the message that they,were trying so hard to come across did,not hit the way it needed to and why,this was clearly a wasted opportunity,and they opted for wokeness instead of,just a pure bred horror film i need you,guys to drop down and subscribe to my,channel,and like this video im going to give,you guys a moment to do that and then,were going to come back and discuss all,things,what the,[Music],now that you guys have hopefully,subscribed to see more of me lets get,into this movie,now before we jump on jordan peele yaya,neil decosta and the show of a film,i just want to spend one moment on the,1992 version of candyman,i was so,like dead ass i was so excited for this,film,i am a horror buff i love everything,horror ive always been a fan i,originally intended for this channel to,be a full-blown horror channel but as,you can see stuff went astray,but nevertheless,i love horror films,nothing,walking has ever touched me as hard as,this film right here the movie had so,much nuance around it it was almost like,this poetic touching spiritual gothic,horror,slasher slash it was such a different,mix of things not only do we get this,black hooked killer but theres you know,this unrequited love theres this you,know this poetry coming at you this,almost like magnetic filling coming once,he makes his appearance its like its,nothing that ive ever seen its so,chilling and so bothersome but so,beautiful to look at that you cant look,away and its intriguing you know the,story just keeps you guessing its just,so,different,and we hadnt gotten anything like that,since especially in iconic figure like a,tony todd portraying a slasher and he,wasnt just you know a normal slasher he,had you know he spoke first of all he,was you know dapper when if you saw him,you know you wouldnt you know think,twice to think he was until you like it,was,it was so special yall im just not,even gonna go there,so for us to get,anything now,in the realm of that you know spiritual,sequel and then take that and bring it,into the now,how can you that up,lets talk about it,so before i get into,all the problems i have with this movie,let me first get into the pros and some,of the things i did like about this film,there are some there,for starters theres some beautiful,direction here nia de costa did a,wonderful job directing this film,theres great cinematography the hues of,the film the tint the color all the,black people all look illuminated the,color palette everything was nice there,most of our main cast are yaya abdul,mati,tiana paris,um,coleman domingo everybody here did a,pretty good job acting wise,now there is many scenes where we get a,flash forward or flashback and they use,puppetry and it is quite amazing its,something ive never seen before and i,like what it had to bring here,especially towards the end of the film,and i also like all the callbacks to the,original film we get certain shots,certain scenes you know anthony running,around investigating kind of like helen,in the first film all of that was great,and of course we still have some of that,philip glass score from the first film,that kind of ties everything all,together black man its,we are immediately hit with the main,focal point of this film as soon as it,comes on now we are still set in our,cabrini green projects it is 1977 but we,immediately get into you know being,racially profiled police brutality,this man being set up you know we bring,back the a call back to you know the,razors and the candy from the 1992 film,you know suites for the suite but here,its like some creep,thats just stepping and you know that,was used as a callback also stepping out,of the wall and hes just offering candy,all types of creep factor but its just,made for us to understand that you know,he was you know maybe not all mentally,there he just like giving out candy,bottom line it wasnt his fault he was,you know attacked beat to a pope this,that in the third when in actuality he,didnt did it this was yet another,injustice done to a black man as its,done you know all around the world and,you know we make up these tales and,these things here to deal with them and,blah blah blah,that was so heavy handed here,like,for that to be the main focal point of,the,film it made this a completely different,movie,and i expected that i didnt expect this,to be part two of that first film i knew,it wouldnt be from the trailer,but i also didnt think it would be that,we are immediately made to feel some,type away and have a racial divide as,soon as this film comes on that sets it,up for,white people bad black people good like,i would have never expected to get that,here,even you know in the beginning when we,have that wonderful narration from,however you know coleman domingos,character william he gives me you know,that good keith david deep kind of raspy,really good voice,and,when were you know describing what,happened even for the police to be,outside of that 1977 cabrini green you,know oh a white girl got some candy with,some razors in it and the white,policemen you know were searching for,this man and,there was so much of that here,and,i dont know why im surprised because i,remember watching the 1992 film i used,to always go like what sense did it make,for that injustice to be done to him and,him come back and you know,pretty much kill black people i just,never got that but here not only do we,not get him just coming back to kill,black people or just to kill people in,general we are coming back for white,people,completely,okay theres almost not one white,character here throughout this whole,film that isnt saying something that,has a racial undertone in it,that you know,isnt seen as you know some sort of bad,and i just dont feel like we had to,make them that to get our point across,in this film and it really took me out,of it especially when we get to,the death scenes lets talk about,the death scenes,that good slasher,that we go to horror films for the,carnage the blood the guts the,none of it here theres absolutely none,of that here i dont understand having a,rated r film for some,candyman is a slasher,all,deaths are done,off,screen,all of them,all of them like i,i can remember,watching that,1992,and you get to see that hook and its,just,the its like the blood almost like,spewed on you through the screen not,here,not here this is almost not a horror,film,its a film but horror i,this is a film that wanted to make a,statement and being a horror wasnt one,of them the main focus here is you know,injustice done against black people,and what the candyman figure represents,in the black community as far as that is,concerned,horror this is not a lot of stuff is,cgid in,kind of cheaply done really,underwhelming a lot of cutaway scenes a,lot of scenes where you feel like,theres some intense build up and,somethings about to happen and it just,doesnt nothing here pulls you in to,this being a horror this is not a horror,film,why now unlike our original film we have,multiple candyman here,its more so,a figure to represent you know,injustices done to black man over time,every time one of these things happened,you know unfairly torture murder murder,murder fires hanging,this turns you know,some man into this now with uh our,sherman fields character being our main,candyman-esque figure translating here,prior to the ending of the film,unlike t

Candyman (2021) KILL COUNT

foreign,[Music],count where we tally up the victims in,all our favorite horror movies Im James,agentes and today were looking at,Candyman the requol released in 2021 the,original Candyman came out in 1992 and,is probably the best early 90s horror,movie I hold it in my top 10 maybe even,five due to its romantic story layered,themes wonderful cinematography,beautiful score and of course the,unforgettable performance by Tony Todd,as Candyman Candyman 2 was mostly,forgettable and the third one was a,freaking disgrace so Im glad this,latest installment chose to ignore them,and be a direct sequel to the original,as is the trend these days this Candyman,was co-written and directed by Nia,DeCosta her second feature film after,2018s little woods for next movie is,the Marvels which will make her the,youngest director to helm a film in the,MCU she is in fact six months younger,than me which yes is a weird thing to,realize Ive got issues with this movie,but decostas direction is great from,start to finish it is filled with,visually compelling shots that stick,with you long after the amazing credit,sequence ends working with co-writer and,producer Jordan peel DeCosta crafted a,Candyman that Embraces social issues in,a more overt way than the original did,the first film was full of social,commentaries surrounding the setting of,Cabrini Green and the tragic backstory,of Candyman but those ideas were sort of,secondary possibly because the director,and main character werent black,themselves Helen Lyle was a well-off,white woman and although she meant well,she exploited another Community story,and heartache for her own benefit this,Candyman positions black characters as,the protagonists which mirrors the way,black filmmakers reclaimed the Candyman,story for themselves its worth noting,that the Forbidden Clive Barkers short,story that Candyman was based on was set,in the UK and dealt primarily with class,issues it was English director Bernard,Rose who adapted the story to a Chicago,tale dealing with race while I think,Rose did an excellent job his movie told,candymans story from detached to,academic white voices decostas film,uses the legend to explore challenges is,facing black Americans in the past and,today in this movie Candyman isnt a,single individual its a moniker used by,and applied to many an idea that was,already present in the first film I hear,you looking for Candyman bitch,what you found it while that does sadly,mean theres hardly any Tony Todd as,Daniel robatai the original Candyman I,think the approach makes sense in a,movie about shared experiences and,communal memory its why one of the,films taglines was dare to say his name,it echoes say their names a phrase used,with regards to victims of police,shootings people say Candyman but they,dont say the name of Dana robitaille or,Anthony McCoy say the name of the person,say Brianna Taylor say Jacob Blake I,know that some people bristle at films,with social messages even though movies,have always been political but I,encourage everyone to engage with and,explore this movies themes in spite of,its faults it brings up a lot of,interesting ideas that are worth further,discussion thats why Ive included a,link to the movies official reading,companion in the video description check,it out its very informative the great,thing about horror is that it can be,thoughtful and bloody lets Embrace both,those ideas and get to The Kills,the movie begins with a shadow puppet,show of police brutality young William,Burke here lives in Cabrini Green in,1977. its a predominantly black housing,project that police only visit when,theyre looking for suspects while doing,laundry William sees a piece of candy,come out of the wall hole hmm thats,funny the wall hole usually has,healthier snacks right now the wall,holes spitting out a guy who looks like,Candyman at least in terms of overwear,and number of hands Williams screams,spurring the cops into action and then,were back stroking down the street,looking up at buildings and a title car,these opening credits are a perfect,inversion of The Originals which,featured a top-down look at Chicagos,highways as Philip glasss score played,this sequence instead looks up with the,buildings disappearing into clouds yet,its so disorienting I felt like I was,watching them descend underwater or,something all the while a new score,plays a much more imbalanced dissonant,piece than glasss Gothic Melody,this Candyman score was composed by,Robert Ike Aubry Lowe a fan of Clive,Barkers work since he was a teenager he,was hired early on during candymans,production and spent months working on,the many layers of his score he even,used ambient noises recorded on location,at Cabrini Green so the music would feel,congruous with the rest of the film The,scorer and the sound live as a character,in the film which is something thats,really important for me his music uses a,lot of Haunting vocalization some of,which he recorded himself,others were provided by his celloist,hildur guanatadir 42 years later the,area around Cabrini Green has been,gentrified living there now are artists,such as Anthony McCoy played by Yahya,Abdul Mateen II whose career has been,straight bumping lately his freaking new,Morpheus we previously saw him in us,where he played Addys dad in flashbacks,and he was also a delightful interview,when he spoke to me about this film,Anthonys partner is Brianna played by,Tiana Paris her career is also on fire,lately Ive enjoyed her ever since she,was on Mad Men as Dawn Dons,receptionist while Anthonys a painter,Brianna is an Art Exhibit curator talk,about vertical integration a visit from,Briannas brother and his partner begets,a conversation that yells out one of the,movies themes historical redlining,white people built the ghetto and then,erased it when they realized they built,the ghetto when that conversation gets,awkward Droid decides to tell a scary,story this is a story about a woman,named Helen Lyle oh hey I love this one,the story of the first film is recited,through beautiful Shadow puppetry as we,learned from Troys retelling the legacy,of Helen Lyle has been besmirched she is,known as a killer of dogs and Napper of,babies even though in actuality Candyman,did all of that and framed her to look,guilty as the story incorrectly stands,the stolen baby was rescued from Helen,by the Cabrini Green residence Helen,then threw herself into the bonfire and,died when Troys not busy spreading,hella mile misinformation hes,admonishing Anthony for the way his,career has recently stalled out Anthony,get painting my sisters not trying to,support you the rest of her life put,down those weights pick up them brushes,well first off note of the weights thing,if I look like that Id never not have a,weight in my hand and second how you,supposed to churn out good work when,youve got to deal with assholes like,Clive the art dealer I want the Anthony,McCoy of the future I want the great,black hope of the Chicago Art scene of,tomorrow for inspiration Anthony turns,to Cabrini Green in the hell a mile,Story the sequence gives us an extended,look at Chicago but sadly its the only,time the movie does that the city felt,like a character in the original movie I,wish it did in this one too she Chicago,has been transformed in the past few,decades sometimes tragically when it,comes to Art like what happened in real,life with this church the north side,strangers home Missionary Baptist Church,had a mostly black congregation after,Cabrini Green was built in 1972 black,artist William Walker painted all of,mankind a mural referencing Martyrs for,social justice such as MLK Malcolm X and,Frank Gandhi and Jesus in 2015 with the,surrounding area having been gentrified,new owners painted over the mural to,make the building more marketable it was,a literal whitewashing of black history,in service of Commerce this movie has a,lot of little details like that and,sadly the kill count isnt the best,format to explore them all I really,recommen

CANDYMAN (2021) Explained + Connections to Original

hows it going everybody welcome to,found flicks today on this explain vid,were looking at the much anticipated,new candy man we follow a young couple,who move into the newly gentrified,cabrini green neighborhood the setting,of the original film a chance encounter,exposes tony to the true story behind,the urban legend known as candyman,unleashing a terrifying wave of violence,i was definitely excited for a new,candyman as the first is a definite,modern well somewhat modern classic,really thanks to the strength of that,one movie candyman emerged as a horror,icon and has endured over the years its,just a great and creepy character imbued,by the one and only tony todd this,really is a role that feels synonymous,with todd no one else will really ever,be candyman there are two later original,entries in the series the sequel,farewell to the flesh was pretty good,but these several years later,direct-to-video day of the dead left,these series on a decidedly low note so,when it comes to our latest entry i was,more than hopeful thanks to the creative,talents involved it was time to give the,beloved icon a fresh perspective i did,wonder just how much if at all they,would reference the original movies,turns out a lot way more than i,anticipated it actually factors in in,many important ways to the new movie,its that whole idea of the legacy,sequel or spiritual sequel something,akin to the new halloweens the original,did happen in this universe and now in,modern day were taking the franchise,into the present i actually was,impressed just how much the new story,had lots of parallels and interesting,callbacks to the original i dug that,aspect to it a lot especially as i had,just rewatched the first one i was like,dang these guys were actually paying a,lot of attention it even updates a few,aspects to the story that could be seen,as maybe a little troublesome nowadays i,also have to mention theres a lot of,accusations of this movie being woke yes,there is a lot of talk about race and,things like that but i have to point out,this was also a very important aspect to,the first one i mean its all about the,neighborhood getting taken over by,modern skyscrapers and effectively,pushing the lower income families out,point being its not like they,shoehorned in this concept into the new,one for wokes sake but i will admit it,is a bit on the nose at times i mean,come on this jordan peel movie what do,you expect bud i mean i know he only,co-wrote it and produced it but its,definitely got his stamp on it overall,to me as a whole i found it a satisfying,and refreshing new take on the series,and there is a lot to look at this one,in particular with his story and its,connections to the first so lets,definitely say his name five times in,the mirror and check out the latest,candyman breaking down the story the new,version of the legend and how it works,along with explaining the ending and,what it means before we dig into the,latest candyman story in modern times it,makes sense to begin with a quick,refresh on the original as it ends up,being quite important to how things have,evolved and changed over time in the,area a lot of the dna of the new one,comes right from aspects established in,the original one concept specifically is,related to urban legends themselves and,how the truth isnt always what the,story mutates into over time our first,unlucky love birds that summon the,candyman also fit right into this,concept bad boy billy played by the,least bad boy of all time ted ramy meets,up with his girlfriend and she is the,one that says his name as we know five,times into the mirror she gets slain and,billy is lucky enough to get away and,already in the aftermath the story has,changed now was billy responsible for,the murder including the baby they were,looking after but even in the same room,another kid being interviewed heard the,tale differently it was the babysitter,that turned murderous this is further,expanded upon in a college course they,bring up the classic urban legend of pet,alligators in the city that grew up to,be too big and were unceremoniously,flushed down the toilet eventually,leading to sewers full of blind albino,gators one student heard that it,happened in miami but another kid,insists it was in new york they read it,in the paper after all their teacher,trevor scoffs well then it must have,been true and considers how it is that,these two were suffering the same,delusion a thousand miles apart he calls,them campfire or bedtime stories kind of,like modern oral folklore our,unself-conscious fears of modern urban,society come to life and that hits the,nail on the head when it comes to the,idea of candyman himself these fears,have come to real manifestation in the,run-down chicago neighborhood called,cabrini green seeing how things have,become gentrified already old buildings,being stripped down and resold as condos,essentially forgetting about those that,live there all in the prospects of,making more money well what a surprise,theres already word of candyman amongst,those that live there and even the,various senseless violence that occurs,the blame is always laid on candyman he,kind of nebulously represents the trauma,and suffering tied to this area and also,is a real vengeful spirit the legend,first appeared back in 1890 a man daniel,robital was the son of a slave and his,father amassed a fortune manufacturing,shoes after the civil war lastly daniel,grew up in polite society a far cry from,the typical black mans experience of,the time he too was a talented artist,and became sought after by other wealthy,families in society for painting their,portraits things all came crashing down,when he fell for the subject of his,latest painting the young daughter of a,wealthy land baron she became pregnant,and after this was discovered the,townsfolk immediately turned on daniel,they chased him through the very area,that later became cabrini green and,first saw off his hand with a rusty,blade and shoving a hook up in there,they followed this by smothering them,and honey and unleashed countless bees,upon him he was painfully stung to death,and finally burned on a giant pyre his,ashes scattered over this neighborhood,now getting why this spot in particular,is so troublesome and rife with a,never-ending cycle of violence his blood,was unjustly spilt and as a result his,spirit was never truly at rest its a,curious grad student helen did in her,quest to learn more about the legend,foolishly summons him yet when it comes,to her he does have more than simply,murder on the mind he believes her to be,a reincarnation of his long lost love,and his desire is more of a tragic love,story than purely malevolent evil i mean,he definitely still kills people he,cant argue with that when it comes to,how his power works its similar to,urban legends themselves the more that,his name is on peoples tongue he can,return without them saying his name hes,nothing cant be forgotten the spreading,of the story and the name on peoples,lips is what keeps him coming back he,continues relentlessly pursuing helen,growling to come with him and be his,victim to join him in the beyond she,consistently rebuffs him but in the end,he manages to get her after all the two,becoming trapped inside of a bonfire,built by angry residents she is able to,escape his grasp along the way,retrieving a baby belonging to local,resident anne marie she painfully crawls,out of the raging fire and is able to,save the child but ultimately she,tragically succumbs to her injuries at,her funeral the entire neighborhood led,by anne-marie come to pay their respects,to them essentially helen is a hero,although dead things arent so,hunky-dory in the end for helen her,distraught cheating husband trevor is,struggling with her fate and wistfully,says helens name in the bathroom mirror,this brings helen back as her own,hook-handed candyman who dispatches him,and his lover showing us how its,already possible for there to be in a,way more than one candyman
