'Candyman' producer Jordan Peele and director Nia DaCosta have shared the first trailer for her reimagining of the 1992 horror classic.
The original 'Candyman' is the story of a ghost haunting the Cabrini Green projects in Chicagos. The spirit of a murdered slave who had been lynched and stung to death by bees, Candyman lives by belief, which means he needs to keep his story alive with new and fresh atrocities.
“The urban legend is, if you say his name five times while looking in the mirror, he appears in the reflection and it kills you,” says Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who plays an artist named Anthony McCoy.
We dare you to say his name in a mirror five times.
“Candyman” hits theaters on June 12.
