This week on End Credits, we’re trying to get some buzz going. Yes, that’s a bee pun, which is fitting because bees are all over the movie we’re reviewing this week, and while we hesitate to join a hive mind, we’re pretty excited about it. This week, we’re reviewing the new horror movie called Candyman, and we’re getting into the second part of our fall movie preview.
This Wednesday, September 8, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
Fall Preview Part 2. Since we’ve published the first part of the Fall Movie Preview last week, there’s actually already been some changes on calendar, and they won’t likely be the last either. Having said that, we will persevere by talking about what’s going to be released this November and December, from Nightmare Alley to the House of Gucci, from King Richard to Diana Princess of Wales (that’s a reference to Spencer btw), we will talk about the hits to come.
REVIEW: Candyman (2021). Based on a Clive Barker short story (but also not really), the first Candyman movie came out in 1992, and although it was basically about a White woman’s problems, the movie stood out with the creepy and enigmatic titular boogeyman played by the legendary Tony Todd. Now, under the supervision of Jordan Peele, Candyman has been realized the way it was meant to be, a story about Black violence and the big ‘s’ Struggle for social equality. Is there room in this space for a horror reboot made with big ideas? Let’s find out!
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
