    The movie “Candyman” has returned to theaters after twenty eight years. Candyman's story starts in a film series where he was portrayed as the vengeful ghost of an African-American man who was lynched for a love affair in the nineteenth century. He came back to haunt and kill anyone who called the name of the Candyman before a mirror five times in a row. This time, the movie is taking place in the twenty-first century, but it will remain in the same neighborhood that the legend began in. The movie was directed by Nia DaCosta and co-written by Ian Cooper, Win Rosenfeld Jordan Peele. The film's original release date was Sept. 25, 2020, but was moved to Oct. 16, 2020 due to the recent reopenings of theaters. This remake will definitely be something to give you a few cheers in preparation for the Halloween spirit.


     “Antlers” is a horror movie directed by Scott Cooper. Not much is known about the movie, but there is a decent idea of the story. This movie centers around a young, small town teacher named Julia Meadows (Keir Russell). Meadows takes a close interest in a rather weird young man in her class named Lucas Weaver (Jeremy T. Thomas). Lucas does not seem to have a family, but he does have a connection with a creature. Julia has a brother named Paul Meadows (Jesse Plemons). He is a sheriff for the small town and he finds himself investigating deaths that look like work from the creature.

Director: Scott Cooper 

Cast: Keri Russell, Jesse Plemons, Jeremy T. Thomas, Graham Greene, and Scott Haze

“Army of the Dead” 

     Zack Snyder's next original film is “Army of the Dead,” a zombie heist story headed to Netflix, This movie follows a group of mercenaries (Huma Qureshi, Dave Bautista, Tig Notaro, Theo Rossi, and Ella Purnell) that head into a zombie infested Las-vegas to pull off the heist of the century. The team would steal the money on behalf of its owner and casino magnate. Snyder has always been a bit of a love him or hate him director, with the caveat that the feelings tend to be very strong on either side. Some consider Snyder a visionary filmmaker whose every move is worth paying attention to, while others find his films to be excessively downbeat and overly indulgent with visuals.
