We may not yet know whether Tony Todd will be seen in the upcoming, Jordan Peele-cowritten reboot of the Todd-starring Candyman franchise. But we can confirm that the horror icon does appear in Candy Corn, a suspense-thriller from writer-director Josh Hasty.
Candy Corn is set on the eve of Halloween in Grove Hill, Ohio. A traveling carnival is in town for the weekend and local outcast, Jacob Atkins, has been hired as one of the freaks in the event’s main attraction, “Dr. Death’s Side Show Spook House Spectacular”. Meanwhile, a group of local bullies are planning their annual public hazing of Jacob, but this year things go too far.
Candy Corn costars PJ Soles from John Carpenter’s original Halloween, as well as Courtney Gains, Pancho Moler, Sky Elobar, Caleb Thomas, Madison Russ, and Cy Creamer, among others.
Candy Corn will be released in the fall but is being screened ahead of that at the Horror Hound Weekend in Cincinnati, with cast members in attendance.
