This was my first viewing of Candyman. I’m not sure how I missed out on seeing it the first time around in the early 90s, since I love scary movies and especially as I spent a fair amount of time obsessed with and reading about urban legends at that time. I really like Virginia Madsen and she’s good here as a PhD candidate determined to get the story for her thesis even if it means a trip to the projects.
I wouldn’t say the movie scared me, but it is pretty damn freaky and just… Well… weird. I liked it.
