A chance encounter with the old-timer exposes Anthony to the real story behind Candyman. Anxious to use these macabre details in his studio as refreshing…
Up to now, 2020 continues to be largely a rough year for terror Fans in regards to new releases in the genre, but things seem to finally be turning around.
This Friday, audiences will get the chance to witness the awesomeness that is Leigh Whannell’s The Invisible Man, and now we understand that playing before it will be a preview of one of their very exciting scary movies series to come out within the next few months: Nia DaCosta’s Candyman.
THE CANDYMAN TRAILER
Sufficiently traumatized now? Great, because we have a bit more than three months prior to the complete movie arrives in theaters, which should be plenty of time to recover and then be wholly re-traumatized all repeatedly.
Based On a script by Nia DaCosta, Jordan Peele, and Win Rosenfeld, Candyman brings the traditional urban legend about the titular hook-handed villain who can be summoned by saying his name five times into a mirror… only you do not really wish to do that since the end result is excessively bloody murder.
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II plays Anthony McCoy, an artist that develops a fascination with the horrible myth, and sees his fascination takes on new levels as he discovers he could actually be changing into Candyman himself.
If You haven’t watched the first Candyman lately, it is an amazing example of pull-no-punches terror, and it would appear that Nia DaCosta has generated something at a similar vein.
While we sure hope that this trailer is not showing us too far, it looks like this film will be full of quite a few horrible and frightening collection pieces, in the events which transpire in that large school toilet, into the art exhibition, to anything is going on in that shower at the very end.
