THE BIG PICTURE
One of the horror masterpieces of the 90s, Candyman, inspired by Clive Barker’s genius, set a standard in delivering chilling real-world resonance, an avant-garde feature in its era. Premium Collectibles Studio now introduces a creepy ⅓ scale statue that replicates Tony Todd’s iconic Candyman from the first sequel of the series. Though subsequent sequels couldn’t measure up to the original, the Candyman’s terrifying legacy has been maintained, and even rejuvenated, with the 2021 reboot.
Candyman holds a special place in the pantheon of 90s horror, sharing the stage with classics like Silence of the Lambs and Scream. This supernatural slasher, built on Clive Barker’s horror craftsmanship, unveiled Tony Todd’s sinister Candyman persona to the world. This Halloween, get ready for a spine-chilling addition to your collection as Premium Collectibles Studio is rolling out a new statue inspired by the villain’s appearance in Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh.
The ⅓ scale statue, an impressive 28 inches in height, embodies Todd’s fiendish character with an uncanny perfection, providing two swappable head sculpts. One features Candyman’s usual unsettling expression, and the other, a swarm of bees emerging from his mouth, mirroring those horrific moments in the films. Dressed in his signature brown fur jacket, weathered gray pants, and wicked hook hand, the statue rests atop a colossal base showcasing details like the character’s exposed ribs, honeycombs, skulls, and decaying flesh. A limited “Platinum Signature Exclusive” edition includes Tony Todd’s autograph.
The Lasting Impact of Candyman
Debuting in 1992, Candyman jolted audiences with its intricate themes encompassing race and societal corruption in the U.S. It paved a terrifyingly authentic path that was ahead of the curve. Beyond the stifling ambiance, the film’s genius lay in the way it portrayed the strife of the lower class and paired it with an eerily enchanting musical score. To this day, Candyman stands as one of the most fearful films ever, thanks in part to Todd’s mesmerizing yet gruesomely horrifying performance. He puts Candyman on an equal footing with other infamous slasher killers like Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, and Jason Voorhees. Despite its sequels falling short of the original’s nightmare-inducing quality, the 2021 reboot revitalized Candyman’s fascinating legacy.
Candyman…Candyman…Candyman…Candyman… (Nope, I’m not saying it one more time!)
