    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This film is perfect.

    I'll start there, and I must say, I was in pure awe the whole run-time. Nia DaCosta's motion-picture of pure horror absorbed me. You coast as a viewer watching this, as the film goes for a slim hour and 30 minutes.






    And, my, my, Nia DaCosta doesn't waste a single-second. The editing on this project is simple, which gives the story and actors the ability to form "the Universe" needed. There's not extremely dramatic editing occurring,…

    Director Bernard Rose is a mastermind. He's created a prodigal film that delivers more than it should---the destruction and moral tragedy of the story is unsettling. 'Candyman' scared the living hell out of me, literally. It's the best horror picture I've ever witnessed due to the sheer terror that is projected by the antagonist.



    The mythological theme is heavy here, and it pays off in various ways. The film is glorious, bloody, and raw, causing a catastrophic wave of true…
