Welcome to Screen Gems, our weekend dive into queer and queer-adjacent titles of the past that deserve a watch or a re-watch.If nothing else producer Jordan Peele’s revival of Candyman, which debuted in theatres last fall, will be remembered for one thing: Coleman Domingo‘s incredible, Queerty Award-nominated performance.

This semi-sequel to the 90s classic follows Alexander (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II), an artist obsessed with the legend of the Candyman—that is, a different but similar Candyman than the killer depicted in the original film.

Of course, as his research continues, the bodies begin to pile up…and Alexander begins to exhibit signs of demonic possession by the Candyman himself.Abdul-Mateen, himself a star on the rise with Watchmen, this film, and The Matrix Resurrections, cements his reputation as a versatile, fearless actor here.
