“Candyman” will be released on digital, 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD in November!
From director Nia DaCosta, Candy will be released on Digital on November 2, 2021. A 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD release of the horror film starring Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will follow on November 16, 2021 through Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
The next home outing of Candy includes over an hour of additional content for fans to enjoy. You’ll see an all-new alternate ending as well as deleted and extended scenes.
The official description for the film reads as follows:
For decades, Chicago’s Cabrini-Green housing projects have been terrorized by a ghost story about a hook-handed supernatural killer. These days, a visual artist (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II; HBO’s “Watchmen”, Us, Matrix Resurrections forthcoming) begins to explore Candyman’s gruesome story, unaware that it would destroy his sanity and trigger a terrifying wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with fate.
Along with Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, the cast also includes Teyonah Parris (If Beale Street could speak, WandaVision), Nathan Stewart-Jarrett (Generation, Unsuitable) and Colman Domingo (Fear the living dead). Candy was produced and co-written by Oscar winner Jordan Peele.
The exclusive bonus features on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, DVD and digital are:
- An alternate ending
- Deleted and Expanded Scenes
- Say my name – The filmmakers and actors discuss how the horror at the center of Candy is both timely and timeless.
- Body horror – Prepare to explore director Nia DaCosta’s influences in the body horror subgenre, and what Anthony’s physical transformation means for the story.
- The eye of the filmmaker: Nia DaCosta – You will take a closer look at DaCosta and find out just how perfect her singular voice and perspective was for telling such a story.
- Paint chaos – The filmmakers explain how Anthony’s work evolves throughout the film and how the creative team strove to achieve authenticity by recreating Chicago’s vibrant art scene.
- The Art of Robert Aki Aubrey Lowe – Composer Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe shares some of the unconventional methodologies used to create the sound for Candy.
- Terror in the shadows – A behind-the-scenes look at the creation of shadow theater scenes and the importance of choosing such a medium.
- Candyman: The Impact of Dark Horror – A round table moderated by Colman Domingo on the nuanced relationship that black Americans have with Candy, the horror genre and the general idea of monsters and victims.
Candy was rated R for gory horror violence and language, including some sexual references. The approximate run time is 1 hour 30 minutes.
Originally looking to debut in June 2020, Candy was finally released in US theaters on August 27, 2021. With an announced budget of $ 25 million, the film grossed more than $ 77 million at the global box office.
For those wondering, the film has an odd portrayal. The queer couple (played by Nathan Stewart-Jarrett and Kyle Kaminsky) were well received by the audience. And that’s a good thing given the history of queer characters in the horror genre.
