Horror 101 – Episode 92: Candyman (1992)

October 31st, 2019

We Dare You To Say His Name Five Times!

Welcome back to the Horror 101 podcast. In 1992 Bernard Rose directed a film which was based on a Clive Barker Story about the potency of urban legends and how far down the rabbit hole one graduate student will go to find out the truth about the infamous Candyman. They say if you call his name 5 times into the mirror he will come and butcher you with his hook for a hand. A true retelling of the Bloody Mary game. It featured good gore, excellent performances from Tony Todd and Virginia Madsen and a haunting score by Phillip Glass. Since Jordan Peele is helping to write the next chapter in this story (coming next year) we decided to give the Horror 101 treatment to Candyman this Halloween. Join us!
