Because the real world isn’t scary enough as it is these days.

Between Get Out and Us, Jordan Peele has a knack for making uniquely brilliant horror movies, and it looks like we’ve another on the way in Candyman.

While Peele wrote the screenplay, Nia DaCosta (who directed two episodes of Netflix hit Top Boy) directed it, and it was her who shared the new trailer for it on Twitter on Wednesday evening.

The new trailer for the remake of the classic horror movie is done entirely through creepy puppetry, with eerie music playing in the background.

DaCosta shared the trailer alongside the caption: “CANDYMAN, at the intersection of white violence and black pain, is about unwilling martyrs. The people they were, the symbols we turn them into, the monsters we are told they must have been.”

The original trailer was released earlier this year, and featured the scariest rendition of Destiny’s Child’s ‘Say My Name’, which is unsurprising given Jordan Peele’s involvement in the film.

Despite the fact that plenty of movies have been pushed back due to Covid-19, Candyman is expected to be released in September of this year.
