The film's premise is a nod to a sleepover-based urban legend and the project is directed by Nira DaCosta (Little Woods).
The second official trailer spans a little over two minutes and begins with Euphoria actor Colman Domingo's haunting voice as he tells the story of the killer set to animated visuals which look Tim Burton esque.
'This is where it all began the story of Candyman,' says Domingo who plays a neighborhood old-timer. He details the story of a killer terrorizing the housing projects of the Cabrini Green neighborhood who has a hook for a hand.
After revealing that police killed the alleged murderer on the spot years prior, Domingo continues to say that weeks later more incidents with razor blades in candy occured.
