Candyman (aka No Body, Just Vibes) with Danny Lore

A movie about a white academic who is determined to learn the truth behind an urban legend, no matter how many black people have to die for her to do it.

Fear Level: Spooky/Existentially disconcerting
Trigger Warnings: Blood, guts, gaslighting, reckless endangerment of children, white male academia, pet death, strobing, needles, the r-slur.

Candyman is a movie all about race, urban legends, poverty, and academia. But they question you'll be asking yourself for months afterward is "does this movie know it's about white feminism?"
