The latest documentary on the revered Candyman franchise is estimated to release now before the reboot from Nia DaCosta and Jordan Peele.
Guided by Bryn Curt James Hammond, The Complete History of Candyman ensures to focus on the result of Clive Barker’s small story Forbidden — the franchise’s source material — the history of the ’90s trilogy starring Virginia Madsen Tony Todd and DaCosta and Peele’s upcoming take:
“‘The Complete History of Candyman’ delves into the original trilogy that ran from 1992 to 1999, based on the short story ‘The Forbidden’ by Clive Barker, that by turns utilized the embodiment of fearmongering seen in Do the Right Thing, but by turning it into a literal bogeyman in the deprived Cabrini-Green area of Chicago. It uses elements of social criticism and the great rot of social housing while posing the question ‘Does God exist?’, all through the eyes of the film’s protagonist, which allows the viewers a bizarre tour de force of the harsh reality that results when stereotypes applied to black people are believed en masse.
‘The Complete History of Candyman’ presents an in-depth investigation into the series, the author, and the up-and-coming Jordan Peele reboot from brand-new and archival interviews from scholars and creators, from the voices who survived the genre’s past trends; to those shaping its future.”
Watch the trailer below and hold on for a release date announcement. Nia DaCosta and Jordan Peele’s Candyman reboot, Although, will premiere on August 27.
