Blu-Ray & DVD Arrow Video Releasing Stunning ‘Candyman’ Limited Edition (UK) Blu-Ray Published 5 months ago on July 15, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet After years of waiting, UK fans can finally look forward to a stunning release of director Bernard Rose‘s early ’90s horror slasher classic Candyman on Blu-Ray. Arrow Video will be releasing a limited edition of the film on October 29, 2018. Head on down to check out the amazing packaging in full, including a pre-order link RIGHT HERE! Dare you say his name five times? From the chilling imagination of horror master Clive Barker (Hellraiser, Nightbreed), comes Candyman arguably one of the greatest horror movies of the 1990s, now newly restored on Blu-ray. Synopsis: “When grad student Helen Lyle (Virginia Madsen) begins working on a thesis looking at urban legends, she encounters the tale of the Candyman the vengeful spirit of a hook-handed slave, who, it is said, can be summoned by saying his name five times in the mirror. As her research leads her into the bowels of Chicago’s deprived housing projects and deeper into the Candyman’s world, Helen learns that some legends are best left alone…” Expertly directed by British filmmaker Bernard Rose and boasting an astounding score by composer Philip Glass, Candyman ingeniously reworks Clive Barker’s original short story The Forbidden (originally published as part of his Books of Blood collection) into a modern horror parable that remains as timely today as ever.
