At San Diego Comic Con, Scream Factory announced a shit ton of new titles that they're bringing to Blu-ray, one of those being this stunning release of Bernard Rose and Clive Barker’s classic horror story Candyman. Coming to the U.S. and Canada this Fall! November 20th to be exact.
Presented in a 2-Disc Set loaded with new extras and a new 2K transfer of the film, the newly-designed front-facing cover comes to us from artist Joel Robinson and the reverse cover will showcase the original theatrical one-sheet concept.
Please note that the Deluxe poster and alternate slipcase offer will be made at a limited quantity, however. Only 2000 are being produced and they are expected to sell out! So pre-order while you can!
Synopsis: This gut-wrenching thriller follows a graduate student whose research summons the spirit of the dead! When Helen Lyle hears about Candyman, a slave spirit with a hook hand who is said to haunt a notorious housing project, she thinks she has a new twist for her thesis. Braving the gang-ridden territory to visit the site, Helen arrogantly assumes Candyman can't really exist ... until he appears, igniting a string of terrifying, grisly slayings. But the police don't believe in monsters, and charge Helen with the crimes. And the only one who can set her free is Candyman.
