The Sweet Legacy Of CANDYMAN



27 years ago "Candyman" was released in theaters. Based on the great short story "The Forbidden" from the now legendary Clive Barker horror short story collection THE BOOKS OF BLOOD, "Candyman" ushered in a new era of horror monsters, and was brought to life by horror icon Tony Todd.
Also starring the wonderful Virginia Madsen, the film brought a gritty realism to a fantastical tale and was told with great craftsmanship and talent.
Horror can sometimes act as a guilty pleasure when it's executed without that kind of care and skill. But this film today stands the test of time thanks to the acting abilities of these great actors and the skillful filmmaking of Bernard Rose.
The legacy of this film is so strong, horror's newest voice Jordan Peele plans to remake the film.
I hold reverence to Clive Barker's dark and brilliant imagination with his BOOKS OF BLOOD and it's a testament to those books that this story continues to spark interest.
