The residents of Cabrini Green, a housing project in Chicago, have been living in fear for decades because of the Candyman, a local myth that purports to be a supernatural killer out for revenge. Legend has it that if you say his name into a mirror five times then he will be summoned to wreak havoc on the world. When a visual artist named Anthony moves into a new luxurious apartment in the area named Cabrini Towers with his partner Brianna, he soon stumbles upon the myth of the Candyman and decides to use it as inspiration for his paintings. As his art begins to get recognition, Anthony finds himself drawn deeper and deeper into the macabre and terrifying world of Cabrini Green, unknowingly unlocking a long-dormant evil that could unravel everything in his life. A spiritual sequel to the 90s horror classic of the same name, 'Candyman' is part of the new wave of horror films that explicitly explore social issues: in this case race, gentrification and artistic appropriation.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
