366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 17

The Date: October 17
The Movie: Candyman (1992)
What Is It?: Themes of slavery and modern-day urban poverty give Bernard Rose and Clive Barker’s urban-legend depth. Tony Todd’s performance as the charming yet deadly title character makes it memorable. He's too human to qualify as a monster and too well developed to qualify as a slasher. A truly unique horror picture. Notice how many scares take place in broad daylight.
Why Today?: This day is known as Sweetest Day in the Midwest.
