DVD extra
7 December 2004 | by petershelleyauSee all my reviews

This extra on the Collectors Edition DVD of Candyman features some interesting observations and anecdotes on the film. Bernard Rose adapted Clive Barkers short story, changing the locale from England's Liverpool to Chicago, and making Candyman a black man which he is not in Barker to explore American racial attitudes about a powerful black man seducing a white woman. Rose says that the latter is also an exploitation of 2 'blots' in American history - the massacre of the American Indians and slavery. Filming also provoked reactions when it was finishing up as the Rodney King riots occurred. We see photos of Clive Barker's childhood, Rose and Virginia Madsen talk about how she was hypnotised for her scenes with the Candyman, and we also learn how the bee scenes were accomplished.
