Is Candyman Worth it?
Well, it depends, do you like candy or not? Candyman is a supernatural drama with horrors of sanity and society. The murder of an innocent man because of the racist nature of the people is a bold portrayal of the highly debated existence of racism, even in today’s modern world of the 21st century. This initiative deserves to be appreciated, along with the strong performance of the cast.
Although some of the viewers criticized the film for not being as horrifyingly attractive as expected from a horror film, the psychological side of the film unraveling the sanity of human thoughts and fears is an exciting concept that could have given some more serious attention during the development of the film. Overall after looking at the trailer, it seems interesting to know the story of Candyman, but it again depends on whether you like candy or not.
