    This is a remake of a 1992 movie called the candyman. This is definitely a good horror movie but gets worse towards the end. It has some good jump scares but they only happen if you watch the movie loud. The storyline was smart but the ending was terrible. It was a strange cliffhanger. I thought the candyman himself should have looked scarier. There were a few scenes where I thought it was going to be really scary but in the end someone just died. If you are easily scared and want to scare yourself this is a good movie for you but if you watch lots of scary movies and don't get scared but want to be scared this is not a movie for you. Overall entertaining movie with good storyline and good characters and cast. I would say it still needs work on the ending though.

    Great horror, widely understimated
    I love horror and I loved this Candyman. It won't make you not sleep at night, but it is definetely going to make you suffer.

    The gore bloody elements created the tension for me. I love gory films and I am used to enjoy them, but this movie made me close my eyes at points.

    The cinematography is beautiful, even too beautiful for a horror movie (I found that a bit distracting).

    Is it the best horror movie I have ever watch? No. Is it a good horror movie? Yes. Jordan Peele is amazing, I feel this one got lost between the catalogue just because his other movies are better. I can't wait to see more of his work.

    I see bad reviews about the lack of dept in the characters. Well, this is a horror gory film, and the characters have all the insides that you need in a horror film.

    I believe as soon as you read a review of someone annoyed at the political view of the movie, you know from that point that review isn't about the film, but about the political stands of the people writting it.

    Loved watching it. The political plot adds very cool twists to the movie. I recommend to give this a watch.
