Candyman has always fvcking terrified me. As a Clive Barker fan from the early days, also writing for the official CB Magazine, I’ve been onboard right down the line. When I heard that Jordan Peele was bringing the horror back, I definitely thought that this was a dream/nightmare pair and the early trailers were excellent. Then…Covid happened! A real world horror that stopped cinema in its tracks.

So here we are, much later than expected, but August 27th is now circled in red on the calendar as the day one of the greatest horrors of them all comes screaming back. Check out the trailer below and please, don’t say his name five times, I literally never have!
