Candyman (1992) feat. Brother Ghoulish
In anticipation of Nia DaCosta's sequel, we're taking the highway to Cabrini Green to revisit Bernard Rose's iconic 1992 film, Candyman. Joining us to unpack the white privilege, the racial critiques and the enduring appeal of Tony Todd is Ryan Kinney aka Brother Ghoulish.
Up for discussion: changes from queer writer Clive Barker's short story The Forbidden, the historical reality of the 80s housing crisis in America, Trace's theory about what Candyman represents, and Joe's reading of Virginia Madsen's Helen as a narcissist.
Plus: chunky peanut butter poo, poor Kasi Lemmons' terrible death make-up, Stacey's perky nipples, an extended Resident Evil tangent and Ryan's threat to take over the podcast.
