Candyman ★★★

Watched At : Cineworld

"Say his name"

don't misunderstand this and come into this being a straight up horror flick because it's definitely not.
It has a very different tone to the first playing out more of a slow burn to build how atmospheric and suspenseful it was, the music did play and help a huge part in that.
However what I did find fascinating and in a clever way is how they used marionettes to tell of 'Candyman's' back story, i really enjoyed that aspect of it.
Fans of the original will probably get a kick out of this, but it just didn't quite hit that mark for me.
