It's a special October because it's hook month! There's a buzz in the air because our first hook-themed horror film celebrating a big anniversary is Candyman, which came out 30 years ago on October 16, 1992. Joining Mark on Zoom from Los Angeles is Gaius Bolling, entertainment journalist and host of the Back to the Blockbuster podcast. The guys look in their mirrors and chant Candyman's name five times (not really, but they probably do say his name more times than that throughout the discussion, so watch out, world!). The two talk about the impact of having a terrifying African-American slasher, played by Tony Todd who has one of the best voices in horror, and how the film changes the Clive Barker story's setting to Chicago.
