What if Candyman… was a ’70s exploitation film?
One of the best horror films to come out of the 1990s, a decade not exactly known for great horror, was Bernard Rose’s Candyman, a 1992 adaptation of Clive Barker’s short story.
The film single-handedly made Tony Todd a household name and a horror icon, and it’s also home to one of the best horror scores of all time. Do you love it? Cause I do.
If you’re a fan of Candyman, you’ll probably want this new, retro-style poster from artist Stephen Romano, which was commissioned by Clive Barker himself and is now being sold exclusively in Barker’s online shop.
“It’s a totally new take on the classic film,” Romano says of the art. “Anyone remember the ending? There’s another monster in that film. And she’s a vengeful, badass bitch!”
