...intressant, stämningsfull och spännande.
Despite its sugary title, this film leaves a very dark taste in the mouth.
Derived from Clive Barker's short story The Forbidden, writer-director Bernard Rose turns his gruesome material into a dark meditation on the nature of urban legends.
We think we'll discover that the Candyman is actually a real, live human being - a killer using the legend as a cover. What we do discover is more frightening, and more intriguing. He may literally be a product of the imagination.
