‘Candyman’: Helen Lyle Has Become an Urban Legend Herself in New Clips from Nia DaCosta’s Sequel

Candyman returns to theaters on August 27, 2021, and make no mistake, Nia DaCosta‘s new movie is a true sequel to Bernard Rose’s original classic. DaCosta’s Candyman (read Meagan’s review) is set in a world where Tony Todd’s Daniel Robitaille and Virginia Madsen’s Helen Lyle very much exist, with Lyle’s own myth being twisted over the decades.

In the first clip you’ll find below, we get a taste of the urban legend of Helen Lyle, whose tale is depicted in the film through cut-out puppetry. We of course know the truth of Helen’s story, but like all good urban legends, the details have gotten a little fuzzy over the years.

The second clip is one we’ve already seen bits and pieces of, wherein the “whole damn hive” concept of this sequel is powerfully laid out in a monologue by Colman Domingo.

Check out both clips below and find Candyman in theaters *tonight*.

In Candyman, co-written by Jordan Peele, “For as long as residents can remember, the housing projects of Chicago’s Cabrini Green neighborhood were terrorized by a word-of-mouth ghost story about a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to repeat his name five times into a mirror. In present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, visual artist Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) and his girlfriend, gallery director Brianna Cartwright (Teyonah Parris), move into a luxury loft condo in Cabrini, now gentrified beyond recognition and inhabited by upwardly mobile millennials.”

“With Anthony’s painting career on the brink of stalling, a chance encounter with a Cabrini Green old-timer (Colman Domingo) exposes Anthony to the tragically horrific nature of the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony begins to explore these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, unknowingly opening a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifyingly viral wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny.”

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
