Candyman, which will debut this year, is a spiritual sequel to the 1992 classic, called, here in Brazil, The Mystery of Candyman . The movie got a new trailer today and promises to make even the “strongest” scared.
The direction is by Nia DaCosta , her second work. The first, Little Wood s (2018), is a great criminal drama that is not well known here in Brazil. However, what calls the most attention is the producer and screenwriter of the feature: Jordan Peele , responsible for directing two of the great horror films of the end of the last decade, Run (2017) and Nós (2019) . Now that we know the movie is in good hands, let’s go to the trailer:
The story takes place in Chicago’s Cabrini Green neighborhood . Residents remember that, a long time ago, the neighborhood was haunted by a supernatural killer. He was armed with a grappling hook, but was only summoned when called five times in front of a mirror. Ten years after this “ urban legend ”, a couple moves into an apartment and begins their life. Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) is an artist, while his wife is a gallery director named Brianna Cartwright (Teyonah Parris).
Everything was fine until Anthony has a date with William Burke (Colman Domingo), a veteran who knows Cabrini Grren’s past. Thinking it was just an urban legend, the protagonist begins to explore Candyman’s story in his art. Finally, this simple choice triggered something terrible.
Also in the cast are Nathan Stewart-Jarrett as Troy Cartwright, Kyle Kaminsky as Grady Smith, Vanessa Williams as Anne-Marie McCoy and more.
