Candyman Reviews:

Deeply disturbing, intelligently made and without a screaming teen in sight, 'Candyman' is one of the stand-out horror films of the decade.To just list all the elements that create this one of the classiest category efforts of newest years would probably take up most of the thousand words I am allowed here. Suffice to say, it has a genuinely uncomfortable premise, uncompromising execution and a bone jarringly lonely score by Philip Glass. Tony Todd is exceptional as the hollow-voiced titular creature; a lost soul brought to life by the whispers of myth. At once heartbreaking and terrifying this should be the definitive latter day horror film monster- if it wasn't just that tiny bit too close to Hellraiser's Pinhead. But, when you have a winning combination of elegance and disgust in a verbose, cultured villain, why alter it too much?Virginia Madsen convinces fully as Helen; and you can almost see all the cast acting their tiny socks off so as not to allow the side down. So good, in fact, that I'm struggling to search one terrible thing to tell about it.I read here, that in the eyes of one viewer, it "dwells on the nastier things in life" and wasn't a "nice film". I can think of no greater compliment for a truly adult horror movie. No dear, you won't search satisfied teens in pastel t-shirts having slumber parties and discussing trendy scary movies, while some rap star tries to sell records on the soundtrack. This is a grown up movie for grown up people. There is a reason horror movies are for adults, and that reason is 'Candyman'.


Being a horror film buff, I have no concept how this tiny gem escaped me the first time around. I'd heard a lot about it, read about it, etc but wrote it off as "probably stupid" like most of the another horror films I had so wanted to see. So, it wasn't until many years after the movie's release that I finally saw it. And man am I glad I did!Surprisingly, the acting is fabulous...especially for a horror movie. Every hero portrayed fantastically so as to add to the movie, rather than detract. No one really went over the top or became TOO dramatic. Overall, every hero was portrayed realistically. As for the plot: absolutely unbelievable premise testing on the Bloody Mary urban legend. Surprisingly, the film delivers on aspects of believabilty. Of course we don't *really* expect Candyman to pop out of a mirror, but how many of us have started the "Bloody Mary" chant only to stop at the very last one, not daring to continue? Our fears lie behind what COULD happen and the chance that maybe..just maybe it's all real. Candyman plays on that fear and takes us even further over the edge.The film rids itself of the typical cliches (white, undefeatable stalker chasing half naked twits) and allows itself to be an entirely enjoyable, CEREBRAL horror movie. At first we wonder if the Candyman is perhaps just a person pretending to be him, then we begin to question Helen's own sanity...wondering perhaps if SHE isn't the "real Candyman". Eventually, the film leads us to an ending that answers our questions but doesn't shove those answers down our throat. Candyman also does what very several horror films are capable of: it succeeded in having a powerful ending rather than fizzling out during the last 10-15 minutes.The setting and atmosphere are top notch. Using Chicago and Cabrini Green as its scene was perfect...bringing into enjoy racial problems without going over the top or getting "in your face" to the mission of losing its focus. The melody in Candyman adds a mysterious mood that matches the dark, dismal atmosphere of the lone apartments in Cabrini Green.All in all on my horror film scale, I give Candyman a 10. To me, it was purely artistic and absolutely enjoyable. I HIGHLY suggest this to anyone even slightly interested in horror movies.


Helen Lyle (Virginia Madsen) doctoral student, and wife of a collage professor, is doing research on urban legends and mythological folklore for her school thesis. Though, there is one legend which gets her attention and leads her to rundown housing block where the residents trust that the murders that took zone there were done by the hook-handed serial assassin The Candyman (Tony Todd). A mysterious figure that can be summoned by repeating his name five times while looking in the mirror. Which Helen does and actually her life turns into horrifying nightmare, which teeters between reality and myth, as she gets closer to the truth about the Candyman.Second time around and this memorable piece hasn't lost any of its effect. It's not only a incredibly brood horror movie that manages to make an creeping/ingenious plot with such an unsettling physiological tone, but also providing some generally horrific shocks that creep up on you and aren't for the squeamish. So, it's far from your normal slasher and it just doesn't concentrate on the violence for a change. Not only does the plot build on this mystical legend constructively, but also there's also some solid social commentary on the mindset towards race and sex, which added more to this cleverly layered plot (or could I tell tragic love story). What is so nice about the screenplay is that you yourself feel apprehensive to what's event to the protagonist and to where this storyline is heading by testing on what folks trust and how these believes can overcome them. Plus it makes nice test of the Chicago's gloomy surroundings. Not only does the movie have substance, but also style to boot. The direction by Bernard Rose is quite brilliant, with Rose superbly mixing visuals that gel myth and reality superbly. Particularly the well-crafted encounters between Helen and the Candyman - these sequences were incredibly hair-raising. He creates such a glum and dark atmosphere within these rundown buildings filled with vibrant artwork, the richly layered aura goes hand-to-hand with the moody legend. The slow pacing of the movie is perfect; there are no tedious blotches because you are fully wrapped in the storyline and by the delicious performances. The death toll isn't big, but there are some true gruesome deaths, with A LOT blood. The make-up and unique results are extremely thoughtful and inventive. Phillip Glass' extremely effective score deserves such high praise. Soothing, but also haunting and was incredibly effective towards building towards such an almighty blow. Other premium was the smooth as silk camera-work; it captured the balanced layout of Chicago with plenty of stunning Ariel shots (great intro). Overall, I was just amazed by this beautifully planned production.What a horror icon! Tony Todd fully nails down such a terrifying and profound performance as the mythical being The Candyman. I trust this horror hero fully wipes the floor clean of the another icons of its category and who created him? No another than from the dark mind of Clive Baker (Hellraiser), who brings this frightening thriller alive, which is basically based on Baker's short storyline - The Forbidden. He came up with a special horror hero that's downright unnerving, fully authentic and has a lot of depth. But Tony Todd's towering figure and eerie voice has a lot to owe to that and to create one tremble in his presence! Virginia Madsen gives a stellar performance as Helen Lyle, who we really do care for her and feel what she is feeling. Nice helping roles from Xander Berkley as Helen's Husband, Kasi Lemmons as her friend/student who's also working with her their thesis and Vanessa Williams as Anne-Marie McCoy who lives in the rundown estate. The dialogue was packed with depth, but also laced with interesting subject and Todd's lines were cute much poetic and smooth.The one and only "small" negative would be the ending for me. I was somewhat allow down by the second ending and I thought maybe it could've done without it. It just felt tact on. Anyhow it didn't stop it from being damn right creepy and it does package a true unsteadiness.To receive in the mood of it, I tell it's definitely a movie to watch late at night… alone.One of the intelligent horror movies (if not the best) of that disappointing decade they call the '90s for horror films. If you're looking for a serious horror (before Scream's imitators made a mockery of the slasher sub-genre), I highly suggest this provocative slasher that doesn't cop out the audience.
