Candyman has become one of my favorite horror movies over the last few years.
When Arrow Video released details for their release for Candyman, UK only, I was pissed. I have been waiting so long, and I am not alone. I don’t want to go region free, not yet anyway, but shit man. Well, Scream Factory to the rescue! Our friends at Scream Factory have come through in a major way, check out the details below from Scream Factory’s site. This will go nicely with Scream Factory’s release of the second Candyman movie in your collection.
“An effectively eerie psychological chiller” – Leonard Maltin
This gut-wrenching thriller follows a graduate student whose research summons the spirit of the dead! When Helen Lyle hears about Candyman, a slave spirit with a hook hand who is said to haunt a notorious housing project, she thinks she has a new twist for her thesis. Braving the gang-ridden territory to visit the site, Helen arrogantly assumes Candyman can’t really exist … until he appears, igniting a string of terrifying, grisly slayings. But the police don’t believe in monsters, and charge Helen with the crimes. And the only one who can set her free is Candyman.
