Roommate, the highly anticipated reboot of the 1992 horror movie “Candyman” officially hits theaters this Friday – and we get an exclusive look at how Candyman’s tortured past made it a terrifying urban legend!
If you’re a real horror fan, you’re probably looking forward to the much-discussed reboot of “Candyman” – produced by Oscar-winning director Jordan Peele, directed by Nia DaCosta and starring Hollywood’s new lead actor Yahya Abdul -Mateen II.
If you need a refresher on the genesis of “Candyman,” this exclusive clip provides a brief overview of how Candyman’s doomed love affair led to his torture and ultimate death. Candyman was an artist named Daniel Robitaille who was brutally beaten, his hand severed and tragically lynched by white men in 19th century Cabrini green when he fell in love with a white woman. To seek his bloody revenge, he returns to today’s Cabrini-Green residential project in Chicago.
In a recent interview, Yahya explained his preparation process for his role in the film:
“The first thing I did when I got to Chicago was walking around [what used to be] Cabrini green. And there weren’t any blacks there, like none. It was amazing just to imagine the people turned into ghosts in this place where they come from. For some of the older residents who still live there, they have been redesigned on their own property. It must be a strange and creepy feeling. “
Although “Candyman” has been postponed for over a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is due to be released on April 27th.
Also on “Candyman” are Teyonah Parris (“If Beale Street Could Talk”), Vanessa Williams (“Soul Food and” New Jack City “), Nathan Stewart-Jarrett (” Misfits “) and Colman Domingo (” Fear the Walking Dead. ” “) To see. )
We definitely can’t wait!
