candyman release date

A spiritual sequel to the Bernard Rose’s 1992 horror movie of the same name, Nia DaCosta’s Candyman returns to the now gentrified neighborhood of Cabrini-Green in Chicago, Illinois, back where the legend began. Now, nearly 30 years later, DaCosta is hoping not only to frighten audiences with her vision, but to make them question what exactly it is that makes them so afraid.

“Maybe you’re watching horror and you’re scared because of the very literal ghost that’s in the room,” muses DaCosta. “But I think, in a horror like this, we want you to also understand why the character’s scared. Not just about the ghost, but what the ghost represents. I find that really fun.”

Clever, poignant and creative, it’s easy to understand what Jordan Peele saw in the Little Woods director. A lover of 1970s cinema and a determined writer since the very first time she watched Apocalypse Now at the tender age of 16, DaCosta is an exciting up-and-comer with a vast ocean of ideas, including how to breathe new life into the old bones of Candyman.

Friends reunion

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Series: Friends

Where You Can Stream It: HBO Max

The Pitch: Six attractive twenty-somethings struggle through life and love in New York City.

Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: Like many millennials growing up in the ’90s, I learned about sex through Friends. I didn’t quite understand all of their racy jokes or cheeky one-liners, but I thought it was so cool, so hip, so grown-upFriends was like a fantasy of another place, populated by adults who had it together, or at least I thought so at the time. I know that it’s one of the most popular sitcoms of all time, and it has been “exposed” time and time again as being an outdated product of its time, but Friends still occupies a place in my heart as being that (still pretty funny!) fantasy of twenty-something life — the “fantasy” of which became even more clear when I found myself a twenty-something living in New York, around the same age as the cast of Friends was when the show first starts.

Call of Duty Halloween Event

It’s Halloween, but since full-on parties are going to be few and far between thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, we’ll have to find other ways to enjoy this spooky holiday. If you’re getting sick of watching horror movies and TV shows at home, maybe you’ll want to mix it up with some gaming, and one of the more entertaining options might be playing the latest iteration of Call of Duty during The Haunting of Verdansk Halloween gameplay event, because two horror icons are getting in on the action.

Starting October 20 and running through November 3, Call of Duty is kicking off an in-game Halloween event adding some new gameplay modes in both Modern Warfare and Warzone game variants, along with a spooky new nighttime setting and Halloween-themed rewards. But the most surprising and ridiculous thing about this whole Call of Duty Halloween event is that Texas Chainsaw Massacre killer Leatherface and the terrifying Saw mascot known as Billy the Puppet will be new player skins, bringing the horror icons and some of their killer style into the multiplayer action.
