Honey bee my victim - Candyman review by AER

Spoiler Alert
31/08/2021

Candyman 4 has some great ideas and its course shifting of the Candyman myth is interesting, but thin characters and on-the-nose politics hobble this one. It lacks tension and scares, and by putting Candyman off-centre robs this film of a delicious villain. Also, like the first film, this one dives off a cliff into a bay of nonsense two-thirds in only to return in the final scene with the best scene in the movie.

Nobody goes to see a horror film for subtlety so I'm not mad at the overt political messages of the film, its a way of getting important issues into the mainstream - but in Candyman (unlike other horrors) the social commentary isn't in the form of an allegory, it's part of the plot. This is also good. However, I was sad that all the messaging. and intriguing Candyman myth-making failed to bridge the gap between the slasher/gory elements. It felt like two different films were vying for attention - a potentially interesting film about gentrification and black trauma meets a gory kill-repeat film; it's an unhappy marriage. It also missed the pursuit element of the first film, where Tony Todd's Candyman loomed large despite few appearances; in this new Candyman, the bogeyman, (a few briefs moments aside) doesn't chill, scare, or thrill...

A missed opportunity, but still a very interesting one. 5 out of 10.
