3895582_1.jpgDare you say his name five times? From the chilling imagination of horror master Clive Barker (Hellraiser, Nightbreed) comes Candyman – one of the greatest horror movies of the ‘90s, now newly restored on 4K UHD from Arrow Video.

When grad student Helen Lyle (Virginia Madsen) begins working on a thesis about urban legends, she comes across the terrifying tale of the Candyman – a vengeful, hook-handed spirit who can be summoned by saying his name five times in the mirror. As her research leads her into the bowels of Chicago’s deprived housing projects and deeper into the Candyman’s world, Helen learns that some legends are best left well alone.

Expertly directed by British filmmaker Bernard Rose (Paperhouse) and boasting an astounding score by composer Philip Glass, Candyman ingeniously reworks Clive Barker’s original short story “The Forbidden” (originally published as part of his groundbreaking Books of Blood series) into a modern horror parable that remains as timely today as ever.

    Remember when I was about 7 and my older cousin described candyman to me, couldn't sleep with light off for ages. Good movie though, I enjoyed the new one too a nod to the original.

    Heat, nice set. I wish they changed the set from the blu ray one instead of just putting in a 4K disc, maybe a Steelbook for the 4K edition set
