With our much anticipated movies being cancelled left, right and centre, every time we hear an “update” our heart sinks. However, Nia DaCosta’s Candyman has so far managed to survive the barrage of knockbacks. After a bizarre year, it would be nice to end on a high note. This may well be possible with Candyman cited for a mid-October release. Yet, as we all know, 2020 has been harsh to us thus far and it won’t come as a surprise if the movie does get pushed into 2021 with the others.
However, the positive update we have today comes in the form of the MPAA’s recently announced rating of Candyman. The movie has been rated R due to “Bloody horror violence, and language including some sexual references.” This will surely come as no surprise to horror fans who have seen the trailer.
Given that the original Candyman (and all of its subsequent sequels) was rated R, it looks promising that DaCosta’s movie will pay homage to its predecessors on the gore/violence front. If you’ve not yet seen the trailer (or just want a reminder) you can check it out below. With less than three months before the potential release date we’re all waiting with baited breath. However, if you’d like to see Candyman sooner, you could always find your nearest mirror and say his name five times!
So since our relaunch we’ve brought you some NEWS regarding Bill Oberst Jrs latest venture and a MOVIE review of the brilliant Fatal Pictures production Heir. So it’s only right that we now bring you some MUSIC! As always at Erebus Horror we only bring you the best that independent horror has to offer, and our musical feature certainly falls under that category. Night Keep, A side project by our very own Daniel Edenfield, is an instrumental masterpiece. It’s chilling, eerie but also has a calming effect.
Now you might just be thinking that I’m posting a good review because Dan is one of the team. But I kid you not my friends; the proof is in the pud! Check out this little snippet below. But FIRST – go somewhere quiet, turn off the lights, make yourself comfortable, and close your eyes. Press play (if you can find it with your eyes closed…) and relax.
Allow yourself to be immersed in the story. Pretty cool stuff right? The musical score wouldn’t be out of place in any big budget horror/thriller!
We’ve previously posted on Dan’s other project Throne of Anguish but as you can see he’s definitely going from strength to strength! Following the success of his other projects, Dan embarked on yet another musical venture – Cinematic Horror Music! Every year, during October he releases an original horror symphony and tale of terror, presented in graphic audio format. He does all the compositions and recordings but brings in others to provide the voice acting. So far, he has released two albums under The Night Keep and is in pre-production for this year’s horror album.
