Originality


Candyman is one of the best contemporary horror movies because of multiple reasons. Primo, it doesnít fall into humor, a bad habit modern day studios have adopted. Segundo, it offers romantic horror which somewhat reminds the viewer of black and white films. The investigation takes root in Cabrini-Green, a poor residential project in Chicago; a violent and macabre location. We are then presented with the intrigue behind Candyman. Starting with a childish urban legend, we are plunged into a horror story that only Clive Barker could have written.

The theme music is very appropriate. It supports the dark atmosphere that is already established. The filmís rhythm is slow enough for its own good. I am a bit distant when faced with a film where the humans are almost as menacing as the main threat. In this case, Cabrini-Greenís gangs are sinister and violent to the point where they steal the show from Candyman and his myth.

Candyman is a classic because its intrigue is methodical. It distinguishes itself by remaining dark and disturbing.
