Oscar® winner Jordan Peele and filmmaker Nia DaCosta unleashes a fresh take on the blood-chilling urban legend: Candyman. For decades the housing projects of Chicago's Cabrini-Green neighborhood were terrorized by a ghost story about a supernatural killer summoned by repeating his name five times into a mirror. In the present day, artist Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) moves into the neighborhood, now gentrified beyond recognition. Anxious to maintain his status in the art world, he begins to explore the macabre history of Candyman, which unknowingly unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifying wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny.
