Candyman 2021 Movie: Will It Be A Thriller

Candyman

Candyman is an upcoming American supernatural slasher film directed by Nia DaCosta. It is a direct sequel to the 1992 film series of the same name and the fourth film in the Candyman Film Series, based on the short story “The Forbidden” by Clive Barker. The film stars Yahya Abdul- Mateen II, Teyonah Parris, Nathan Stewart.

Candyman was scheduled for a theatre release in the United States on 27 August 2021 by Universal Pictures.

Premise

For as long as the residents can remember, the housing projects of Chicago’s Cabrini Green Neighbourhood were terrorized by the word-of-mouth ghost story of a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to repeat his name five times into a mirror. In the present day, a decade after the last of Cabrini were torn down, a visual artist named Anthony McCoy and his girlfriend, an art gallery director named Brianna Cartwright, moved into a luxurious loft condo in Cabrini, now gentrified beyond recognition and inhabited by the upwardly mobile millennials. With Anthony’s painting career on the edge of stalling, a chance encounter with a Cabrini Green old-timer exposes Anthony to the tragically horrific nature of the true story of Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony explores these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist of paintings.
