The film came in at number 75 on Bravo s 100 Scariest Movie Moments. The character Candyman came in at number 8 on Bloody Disgusting s The Top 13 Slashers in Horror Movie History and ranked the same on Ugo s Top Eleven Slashers . The actor who played Candyman, Tony Todd, made #53 on Retrocrush s The 100 Greatest Horror Movie Performances for his role.
The film appears in two sections of Filmsite.org s Greatest Scariest Movie Moments and Scenes and Greatest Movie Twists, Spoilers and Surprise Endings . In 2001, the American Film Institute nominated this film for AFI s 100 Years...100 Thrills. South Park parodied this film in the season 10 episode Hell on Earth 2006 , in which The Notorious B.I.G. appears whenever someone says Biggie Smalls three times in a mirror.
Two stand-alone sequels comprising a single storyline were released in 1995 and 1999 respectively: Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh and Candyman: Day of the Dead. Originally, Bernard Rose wanted to make a prequel film about Candyman and Helen s love but the studio turned it down.
In September 2018, it was announced that Jordan Peele was in talks to produce a direct sequel to the 1992 film using his company, Monkeypaw Productions. Todd stated in a 2018 interview with Nightmare on Film Street, I d rather have do it, someone with intelligence who s going to be thoughtful and dig into the whole racial makeup of who Candyman is and why he existed in the first place. In November 2018, it was confirmed that Peele would produce the film with Universal and MGM and will partner with Win Rosenfeld to co-produce the film while Nia DaCosta signed on as director. The film will serve as a sequel, taking place back in the new gentrified Cabrini-Green where the old housing projects development once stood in Chicago. Filming was due to commence in spring 2019. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Todd spoke of Peele, stating: I know he s a fan. I m hoping I will appear in the film in some form of fashion. Wouldn t that make sense? But, it s Hollywood so I won t take it personally if for some reason it doesn t work out. He added, If this new one is successful, it will shed light back on the original. I think the subject matter is more important than any individuals and I mean that.
In February 2019, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II was in talks to play the titular character. In response to the news, Todd said: Cheers to Candyman, a wonderful character that I ve lived with for 25 years. He s brought grace and glory and a beautiful boatload of friends & family. I m honored that the spirit of Daniel Robitaille & Cabrini-Green rises again. Truth to power! Blessings to the cast & crew . However, it was ultimately announced that Todd would reprise his role, while Adbul-Mateen would portray the adult version of Anthony McCoy. Teyonah Parris was cast opposite in playing Anthony s girlfriend. Other added cast are Colman Domingo and Nathan Stewart-Jarret. Vanessa Estelle Williams would also reprise her role as Anne-Marie, Anthony s mother.
Production for the film began in August 2019 and wrapped in September 2019 in Chicago, Illinois. The working title of the film was revealed on some of the cast and crew social media pages as Say My Name which was discreetly used in the revised scripts and production sets to keep things flying under the radar with the official title also being Candyman. The film was released on August 27, 2021.

Candyman is a 1992 American gothic supernatural horror film, written and directed by Bernard Rose and starring Virginia Madsen, Tony Todd, Xander Berkeley, Kasi Lemmons, and Vanessa E. Williams. Based on Clive Barker s short story The Forbidden , the film follows a Chicago graduate student completing a thesis on urban legends and folklore, which leads her to the legend of the Candyman , the ghost of an African-American artist and the son of a slave who was murdered in the late 19th century for his relationship with the daughter of a wealthy white man.
The film came to fruition after a chance meeting between Rose and Barker who recently completed his own film adaptation of Nightbreed (1990). Rose expressed interest in Barker s story The Forbidden , and Barker agreed to license the rights. Where Barker s story revolved around the themes of the British class system in contemporary Liverpool, Rose chose to refit the story to Cabrini-Green s public housing development in Chicago and instead focus on the themes of race and social class in the inner-city United States.
Candyman was theatrically released on October 16, 1992 by TriStar Pictures and PolyGram Filmed Entertainment. The film received generally positive reviews and grossed over $25 million in the US, where it was also regarded in some critical circles as a contemporary classic of horror cinema. It was followed by two sequels, Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh (1995) and Candyman: Day of the Dead (1999). A direct sequel of the same name was released on August 27, 2021.
