  • Summary: "Halloween review": Candyman. this movie is chilling and really shocking at times. but the title of the movie really makes it sound silly and not scary, but when you watch the movie it is "REALLY SCARY". and this movie will get a 3 and a half out of /4 star's "chilling movie".

  • Summary: Decent low budget horror starring the largely under-appreciated Tony Todd. Nice imagery and theme of urban myths based around the unusual setting of a rather grim housing project, but the ending is ridiculous even by schlock horror standards.

  • Summary: Reaches a step beyond mere slasher standards to deliver a superb horror film with lots of suspense and scares and a healthy dose of commentary. Stands next to 'Hellraiser' as the two best Clive Barker adaptations.

Candyman

TrifibianTerror, FilmCrave
5 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Candyman is a creepy little urban horror film that uses the idea of rumour and superstition to create the concept of a phantom killer who appears behind you if you say his name in front of a mirror 5 times. And kills you. While not the most famous movie killer, he's certainly the best thought-out. In his own words 'To be...and yet not have to live' surmises the rather amazing little idea of the film in one line.

Candyman

  • Excerpt: Okay, I'm sorry, but this is one of the lamest horror movies ever. It is about a guy who lived in a small country town, and was tortured and killed for loving the wrong movie. After he died, apparently, if you said his name, 'Candyman', five times, in the mirror, he will appear. So, in the town of which his apartment was in, unexplained deaths were blamed on the Candyman.

  • Summary: A nice little urban horror gem that reaches far beyond a mere slasher story. A bit cerebral, but it still has its scary moments and anything taken from Clive Barker is going to be at least interesting. Sweets to the Sweet indeed.

"Stunning"

David, Mighty Ape
6 October 2009
  • Summary: With most of the major studios now beginning to release a larger variety of back catalog classics on Bluray finally comes “Candyman”. This was a big hit on its release and director Benard Rose took Clive Barkers short story and made it into a cult classic. The Bluray itself is stunning in HD however the only flaw is the audio only comes in HD Master Audio 2 Channel and Im not sure what the studio was thinking when they mixed the audio track as there is no seperation...
