Netflix’s catalog of movies is one of the best among the streaming services vying for your hard-earned dollars. With around 4,000 movies to keep you entertained at any hour of the day, it’s a good choice. But what are the darkest movies you’ll find on Netflix that are actually still good?
Based on the short story The Forbidden by Clive Barker, Candyman stars Virginia Madsen and Tony Todd. Madsen plays a graduate student who’s working on a thesis about urban legends when she hears of a local tale about a man with a hook for a hand called Candyman. Before long, she discovers that the myth is true and gets the Candyman’s attention.
The movie is nearly 30 years old, but it’s still absolutely worth a watch. Todd is extremely eerie as the titular character and Madsen is smart and resourceful, unlike your typical horror movie protagonist. The film does have some violence but it’s not extremely gory and works far more on a psychological level. It’s also a really great examination of inner-city poverty that still holds up well today, and has a 74 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
The movie didn’t make a huge impact on release, but it developed a cult following in the decades since – enough that a reboot produced by Jordan Peele is on the way with Tony Todd returning as Candyman.
