What's "Candyman" about?

So glad you asked! Have a look at the movie's logline, and a quote from the screenplay.

Fun fact: screenwriter Bernard Rose, who also directed "Candyman", made it on a miniscule budget of $6,000,000 (USD)! That's about $11,000,000 in 2021. Certainly that is a lot of money to you and me. But, in terms of filmmaking (shot on actual 35mm film - an expensive medium), it isn't a lot of money.
