lesslike a swarm of bees and much more like a giant sketch that shot his wad all over the city of chicago. Clara was babysitting the Johnsons and uh, Billy pulls up on his motorcycle, no, wait, I said the
wrongcar was sitting on Billy's Johnson while He sailed by motorboat. and he forgot to retire and they had a baby, damn I hate it when I mess up those little details.
Plus, babysitters and horror movies invite guys for the sexual cliche. She decides that tonight is the night she will give Billy what she never gave him. Michael, have you ever heard of Candyman? She'll give Billy a dissertation on an urban legend that wasn't as exciting as I thought. She was going to give him a discount. Sam Raimi, have you ever heard of Candy Man Roll? Credits if you look in the mirror and say his name five times he will appear behind you breathing down your neck I didn't come here for a threesome but I'm willing to try anything with a babysitter in a strange house at least once candy man wait? because? his only mention of the candy man, count billy, he said it four times, then interrupted him and told him to come down, shouldn't this be a new series?
What he saw, I gave him white hair because of the shock scene, does not contain a white-haired Ted Raimi. It's college classrooms and movies almost exclusively these arena-style spaces no one ever has classes in a normal sized room and this is like a folklore class that's lunch that's lunch that's lunch at a university I'll have my hot pockets and Doritos when please professor, then you want to tell me about this girl and I guess we won't wait until she leaves the lecture hall to talk about her. She promised that she wouldn't give the lecture on urban legends until next semester.
She knew it. Bernadette and I were collecting data from the freshman, so why did you have to ruin it? This discussion about when Trevor was supposed to teach about urban legends is silly and feels fabricated to show that they have marital problems. Why does it matter if Helen's candy man thesis is included in the urban legends conference, she can always be included next year or Trevor can return to it, sweet, the success of the thesis does not depend on whether this scam Trevor teaches, so is, wait, Bernadette and Helen, we're interviewing college students. because this isn't all college is, it's the sanctum of a high school, there are walkers, honey, you're my wife and I love you so much, but you can't expect me to delay his education while you two complete your thesis.
It makes sense, how could that classroom of students make it to the corporate sector if they aren't taught that alligators and sewer stories are nonsense? Can I talk to your friend? Sure, okay, she's conveniently mopping outside, we were waiting for the day I could walk into one of these classrooms, if someone was playing a tape about Candyman, it's the only reason we've been hanging around working a job. shit so he called 9-1-1 again and they still didn't believe him wait. This woman had the opportunity to call 9-1-1 twice. What kind of supernatural killer who magically appears after saying her name five times is this guy?
It's the '90s, so the article below the headline is some vague nonsense that many people feel. At this stage, legal action is coming as we find out who, when, where, why and how we will fill out the rest of the article with details that make this a true story, then someone bothers to write a real paragraph about this murder, but then The Most Boring Person to Ever Write the Second Paragraph lulls this newspaper's editor into approving the story because, after all, there are deadlines, so it's totally cool for me to push this other department's medicine cabinet to the floor. , potentially breaking it since no one lives there. there until someone lives in the apartment this is not anyone's property, you don't believe all that nonsense anyway, don't you care so much to unravel first?
Helen's big discovery is based solely on the fact that she lives in the apartment. building that was supposed to be the original cabrini green, secondly when they built the real cabrini green they chose to keep the mirror back to back placed without a wall between them exactly the same and thirdly the murder of gene ruthie just happened right around the time helen and bernadette started writing their thesis and it ties directly into
candyman, but in the end, helen's discovery matters, sure they know they can get into ruthie gene's old apartment and go through the mirror, but Candyman's living space is inaccessible un
lessyou stop by the other apartment you have to do it five times based solely on Clara Billy's prologue, you don't and if that scene is anything to go by then technically Helen and Bernadette combined for nine sweets, one more and I think a brother, sweet sister. appears she's sweet, she's deadly, she's bad for your teeth too when Clara said Candyman for the fifth time, he showed up immediately, so why doesn't he do the same with Helen oh?
Trevor Trevor Strikes Again This Movie Has 17 Aerial Shots of Cars Driving In I Guess No Matter How Dilapidated This Place Is, It Wouldn't Have A Door That Sounds Like A Gunshot When It's Open, Unless It's A Fire Escape With A Bar emergency that doesn't even seem to be one. the kind of door that gets stuck when you try to open it is a pointless scare okay there's nothing to see the real question is how do they see anything this room was pitch black when she walked in and there don't seem to be any windows or any other light sources no there's no one there, okay, that's all Bernadette needed for Helen to convince her to move through the mirror that's probably full of mold and possibly gonorrhea.
Helen and Bernadette are strong, intelligent characters unless the movie decides they shouldn't be. Also, this is kind of strange, the movie never explains why Candyman would need to go through the mirror to kill someone, especially when it took so long that Ruthie Jean was able to call the police twice later, a guy posing as Candyman is arrested and The cops are pretty sure he killed Ruthie Gene, but why would he walk past the mirror? The film never makes any of this clear. Candyman appears in the mirror or comes out of the mirror or just randomly appears in a parking lot.
When people no longer believe in him, throughout this sequence we see Helen taking pictures of the holes in the apartment and I assume that whatever is on the other side of the hole is an empty apartment where something bad happened a long time ago , what are these? photos you're going to take for your thesis, wouldn't you like to walk around and find something interesting first and then your camera runs out of film after taking not one, not two, or three photos of the same thing right before you see the man's mural of candy on the wall that is 500 times more interesting than anything I've taken so far, damn this is a fascinating movie to watch and shots like this just remind me how much it sucks that Bernard Rose didn't stay in the director's list because he can Directing the release of a movie is like someone knew a couple of women working on an urban legend thesis were coming and wanted to plant some fun Easter eggs so the troop wouldn't be a waste of creepy dolls planted random.
To a scene from a horror movie that has nothing to do with the doll cliché, under what circumstances, except life and death, would you ever address your friend this way? Oh, suddenly, Vanessa, I'm not the one in the Williams Candyman draft and that's how that conversation came about. ended, I guess there was no follow-up question after that, basically just confirmation of
everythingthey already heard well enough for me. I have no idea what Purcell is telling us in this story, but I can tell right now that he is Trevor Not Worth Laughing About. It was the early '90s, so public smoking was something this movie seems to put into every scene as if the entire production was funded by Philip Morris.
That is precisely the time when I can be of most help. before disappearing down a path to Bolivia's academic university professors, well if you're looking for the hook man, Helen, you really should read the article I wrote about him 10 years ago during her research, how did Helen miss this guy's article? about the candy man how could he? to discover that her apartment building was built the same way the building in Cabrini Green was built, that's as far as her research has taken her, but somehow she missed that the legend first appeared in 1890. Idiot position, listen , Jake, maybe you can help me.
I wanted to find out about that woman who was murdered, yes, it seems like a totally appropriate avenue to explore with a child. You know, it's okay for you to talk to me, Jake, because I'm not a cop, but you're a strange person he's never seen before. so that's almost worse, I can't say anything, a candy man or get me. I remember one time, back in 1994, when some police officers came up to me and asked me about some murders and being the very intelligent person that I am, I said I can. I'm not telling or else OJ will catch me.
I was so happy I didn't open my big fat mouth. Snitches get points, but I'm not too scared either. Jake. She doesn't lie. In 1992, Virginia Madsen had already been involved in a slam. I attended the Zombie High dance and found out all about acceleration in Highlander 2. I had sex as a sophomore with Don Johnson in the hot spot and couldn't wait to trot around with the weight of Bobcat Gulp and a horse. They felt him floating in a toilet. I can't fix that. Better dead. Well, I don't know, they were able to sew John Wayne Baba back together and his was thrown in a field somewhere.
The guy even ended up doing porn. Are these bees supposed to be sweet? If so, why does he live in a bathroom? And if they are actually just bees, why do they live in a bathroom? The Candy Man has a lot to be angry about in this movie, but I don't think he ever thought he would be a victim of identity theft. He is very lucky to be alive in his life. Yeah, why didn't the fake candy man kill her? Most of the time the movies will have the gang scared of the police sirens or the crow appearing, but in this case there was absolutely no reason not to kill her.
Oh, we knew
everything. about him the only reason we didn't bring him in sooner was because we couldn't find anyone to testify, but all they have is Helen testifying about him assaulting her. She cannot testify about the murder of Ruthie Jean or the child because she is not there to witness those crimes. I seem to like Xander Berkeley a lot, but I don't understand the point of his character. He is a bad husband who is probably cheating on Helen with one of her students, but Helen's credit doesn't seem to be great. In this movie he doesn't have much to do with what motivates her, so there isn't much reason for him to be in this movie and it's boring to see his boredom with married life in every scene where he's welcomed back, so that Helen and Bernie reunited at college, then Bernie gives Helen the pictures he thought were destroyed and then they break up, why didn't they reconnect sooner?
The whole point is that they are working on a thesis together, so there is no way they can wait until the end. of the day to talk to each other, it's surprising how socially conscious this movie is, the dialogue about injustice is clearly in the text, but since there's no one yelling at it, it can go unnoticed by many people, I mean, there hasn't been a lot of man sweet in this movie called Candyman, but it certainly touches on another type of boogeyman that plagues our world. There is absolutely nothing that Helen took photographs of that is so interesting that it would make her want to pull out these slides to try to examine them in the The dimly lit parking lot is also the emptiest university parking lot I have ever seen.
It makes me wonder why Bernie and Helen didn't park on the main level if there are free spaces available. This movie takes almost 44
minutes. To properly talk about the candy man, we're looking at a minimum of two weeks since Helen and Bernadette stood in front of the mirror. Why is the candy man coming to Helen now? It's a valid question that the movie never bothers to answer, and yes, it will say it has to get rid of.innocent blood because she debunked his legend but that still doesn't explain why he didn't show up the night she called him and killed her then she wouldn't have been able to debunk the legend it would have given it more weight turning in a bathroom, cut it out and look, there's no way for us to finish this movie without giving a sin to one of the best horror movie villains, even in the two terrible sequels, Tony Todd gives it his all and is both terrifying and badass. in this role, so now I have to spill innocent blood, I mean, it came out three weeks later, but Candyman actually destroyed innocent blood at the box office, so I guess this line represents yet another case where the people in the movie scene crime they decide to take incriminating weapons.
Because the pull of going to jail for the rest of your life is so strong, Trevor, are you there? yes, that's how interesting these images are. she's basically fast forwarding through all of this. This is the '90s version of Skip, so Helen walks away from her bathroom. mirror and we can see a dining table and a wall behind it, but before, when she pushed the mirror in the other room, we sawWe could see a door at the end of the other apartment. These typical places usually have the same rooms throughout the building, so why wasn't it a mirror image of Helen's apartment?
I make the boy let me take you or he will die in your place, why does he have to give permission in a minute? Bernie's going to break into the apartment and you're just going to kill her. So why this exchange? bernie is going to meet his untimely end here the good news is this is going to be fantastic for the thesis trevor no helen don't say trevor's name five times or he'll show up and kill the momentum of this movie hey wait, they already had trevor happening the time in the living room with them smoking a cigarette six feet away from Bernadette's mutilated corpse.
I mean, I realize they feel like this is a safe case, but you still have to contain the crime scene. Why would you want to live if you wanted to? learn just a little for me, you wouldn't beg to live again with this nonsense of asking for permission, does this mean you have to ask Candyman to kill you because Clara surely didn't ask for that at the beginning of the movie, even if we want to? Keep in mind that it was a story told by a third party, the movie is clearly still setting some guidelines with that sequence that the rest of the movie hasn't bothered to follow, maybe he has a thing for Helen like Dracula had for Meena Harker. and he's choosing to be with her a little bit, I guess I could buy him, but I'll still send him, so this baby's been here, a couple of days, 36 hours at least, sure, Candyman feeds him and changes his diapers.
All the sense would come back if we had a scene where the candy man holds the baby and gives him a bottle of milk with his hooked hand, of course, sad scene and everyone doesn't know that Helen could be gone for life for murder, she didn't commit, blah blah. Blah, but what I really want to know is that after being harassed twice by Candyman and seeing her best friend Phil lying in her living room, why doesn't she have white hair? That's the common point in all Candyman stories, but Helen still has her beautiful and perfect. virginia style doilies and rocking hairstyle it's a bunch of lies where are you going and you're really leaving her with that damn shirt?
I get that they think she's a murderer and she and all that, but that's still a little messed up, I mean, don't you think? I at least need to process the shirt and make sure the blood matches Bernadette's or you know, do any kind of police work. Let me at least flirt for the record. I mentioned that Candyman would have to give the baby a bottle. I didn't say anything about sucking. on his finger so you don't get your movie sins back and you'll actually get an extra for trying to test me. Where we go? We're going to Disneyland by lying to your patients about Disneyland for the last month.
I'm too confused Helen, do they actually have a stylist available to make sure your hair stays trimmed and in the same style during your stay there? That's really nice, I can show it, huh, I can call it and look, there's a mirror right here. randomly in the middle of the office too, how does she know he will show up? Last time, it took her a couple of weeks to show up in the parking lot. Now you are mine. You mean now, why can Candyman explain the rules? out of nowhere and now she has to break a window to escape, that's just a dick move guys, you guys think Helen is a psychopathic killer and the alarm is going off because something is happening next door, but Sure, let Helen in as much as she can. she possibly went
wrongeven disguised as a nurse, I have no idea how she would have gotten out of there, a state psychiatric facility would have entry and exit protocols that she couldn't have gotten around so easily and they were in the middle of searching for a fugitive. patient who they think murdered one of the doctors who would have been locked up please be home please be home yeah sure I hope Trevor is home what a rock that guy has been the whole movie I must I mean it's probably one of the three worst ways to find out. your husband is cheating on you it's when you walk in and his lover is redecorating just go ahead and call the hospital the scene lasts all the time man now she's invited to
candyman's lair it would be nice if he showed her the secret by the way why What kept all these holes in the wall?
Why didn't he also tear down the bottom of the wall and sanctify a door that is a lot of neglected? candles how come this building hasn't burned down yet? so the guy just stays here and sleeps. I thought he was like a genius and he just came out of hiding whenever he was called. How has no one else gotten into his crib? Also, it's very strange that the 19th century supernatural killer ever needs to sleep, we should die together, but Candyman is no longer dead. I can see why this movie has fans. It's an interesting visual take on the creation of an urban legend.
It's also pretty scary sometimes. a formidable horror movie villain and has two really strong performances at its center, but it's also confusing. I know Candyman died from a lot of bee smell, but I don't understand why that turned him into a ghost that's like 25 percent b. Also bees are cool and all, but it makes you wonder why he's called a candy man and yeah, yeah, they smeared honey all over his body to make him sweet or whatever, but that seems like an even bigger reason. to call him a man b. o honey, it also makes you wonder what kind of weird fetishes the racist murderers were into who would even think of smearing honey on someone unless you've done it to yourself once or twice it was always you, Helen, it was always you, like that that this is like some mina harker thing, so Candyman is Dracula, Candyman Candula, sure because of the magic of movies we can see a close up of the hook as it falls into a pile of garbage, but I highly doubt this kid can see the bait and because he is so sure of this that he is able to gather all the children in the neighborhood to start a big bonfire outside and the candy man began to terrorize Helen because no one believed in him anymore.
I would say that a child who barely sees a hook is capable of taking over the entire block. Believing that she is inside a palace of worn mattresses is an unshakeable belief, but if she could hear the baby from a higher floor of the apartment building, how is it possible that these people who come to light the bonfire do not hear him? They are right. Not all those bees would take a French kiss in her mouth and silence her. Will we forget that even if this happens? I know it's so strange that the guy who has no qualms about murdering people is such a dishonest jerk.
Let me go. Can't we already be dead? Why would Helen's death here give her immortal life? This isn't the same kind of death he experienced and I guess she couldn't just murder her himself because it's something they wouldn't be able to spend eternity together if she did. that, but this is kind of a weird loophole, and considering the plan calls for a kid to wake up in the middle of the night and barely see a hook and inspire all of Cabrini Green to start this bonfire, it means the plan had a lot of logic. obstacles to overcome to make it work bringing stacey to his wife's funeral showing a plate to a funeral is fine, so the residents of Cabrini Green are paying their respects, but how did they know what happened?
All they know is that a person suspected of murder and kidnapping was inside. a pile of garbage when they set it on fire they didn't know she was innocent even if they somehow found Candyman's body in the rubble yes she emerged from the flames holding the child but how did they know she wasn't keeping the child there? Then I thought maybe they weren't paying her respects, maybe they think she's the new candy man, which I tell you: why would you want to go to her funeral? I would have eliminated many sins or maybe I had many sins, I am not sure.
If Cinderellas don't know what you have until it plays during this scene, yeah, saying Helen five times doesn't sound the same, yeah, the story you tell your kids to scare them, let me tell you about a scary killer. Who's called Helen I also don't really understand why they gave her these powers maybe it was because her death was unjust maybe bees are really magical but it seems like there would be more sweet people if that were the case, ah, you I was startled, no I was expecting you, but since you're here, I might as well return the favor for scaring me by telling you about Shudder, the best horror streaming service in the world.
