Trailer: New ‘Candyman’ Teaser Will Send Chills Down Your Spine


The narration in this teaser alone sent shivers down our spine. A new teaser trailer for Nia DaCosta’s (DaCosta) Candyman has been released. Watch the teaser for the forthcoming movie below, thanks to Universal.

For as long as residents can remember, the housing projects of Chicago’s Cabrini Green neighbourhood were terrorised by a word-of-mouth ghost story about a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to repeat his name five times into a mirror. In present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, visual artist Anthony McCoy and his girlfriend, gallery director Brianna Cartwright move into a luxury loft condo in Cabrini, now gentrified beyond recognition and inhabited by upwardly mobile millennials.

With Anthony’s painting career on the brink of stalling, a chance encounter with a Cabrini Green old-timer exposes Anthony to the tragically horrific nature of the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony starts to explore these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, unknowingly opening a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifying viral wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny.

Candyman stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Teyonah Parris, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Colman Domingo. The movie was directed by DaCosta and co-written by DaCosta, Jordan Peele (Peele), and Win Rosenfeld (Rosenfeld). Peele, Rosenfeld and Ian Cooper served as producers on the movie.
