Clive Barker invented the Candyman character in his short story “The Forbidden,” but it wouldn’t be until Bernard Rose’s adaptation hit theaters that the iconic Black antagonist would go mainstream and become a part of horror history. But which is the superior version? In episode 195, Luke & James discuss a strange choice in titles, Barker's signature style, Tony Todd’s unforgettable presence, charging by the bee sting, Virginia Madsen’s physicality, and the way that we all contribute to keeping the Candyman legend alive. Join them next week when they discuss the 2021 film directed by Nia DaCosta, starring Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Teyonah Parris, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, and Colman Domingo!
