What We Owe to Candyman: A Review

Wear Your Voice reviews Nia DaCosta's upcoming film Candyman.

In Wear Your Voice, Sherronda J. Brown reviews Nia DaCosta's upcoming adaptation of the classic horror film Candyman. On June 17th, DaCosta shared a trailer for her upcoming movie, with many likening the shadow puppets to the silhouettes of Kara Walker. Brown's review affirms the growing excitement for the film and ponders what the film has to teach us about Black violence and death.
"If horror films with Black ghosts insist upon being in conversation with white violence and Black death—as much as I crave for them to be in conversation with other things—may they at least do the work that Nia DaCosta’s Candyman seems to be taking up."
