• I'm going to be perfectly honest, I don't like the slasher genre at all, but this and a few others are my lone exceptions. While one is expecting a lot of violence plus blood and gore, there's more intrigue than the gore, the character Candyman himself is an interesting (not to mention tragic) figure who would rather keep himself in the dark than let anyone debunk him, the stuff of urban legends. Tony Todd himself doesn't just play the part, he lives it, and just hearing his voice is enough to send chills down your spine. Of course what good is a horror movie without jump scares? They happen when you least expect it, it will have you checking around making sure he doesn't pop up. I won't reveal the ending, but it has a charm that will have you coming back to it again and again.
