Tripping on Legends

Jul 28, 2022

A few urban legends and a series of crimes inspire a movie, which inspire and urban legend, which then inspires another movie. In 1992 a young writer and filmmaker watched Candyman. It changed the direction of his life, like a constant nagging towards the crossroads.

Now, 30 years, two careers, and many pounds later, he sits down with his young daughter to look at the lore and true stories which inspired the movie and its 2021 sequel. After a successful Movie Themed Dinner Night where they watch the movie, Christopher Balzano and Ella talk urban legends, the nature of horror movies, and why we’re still scared to say his name in the mirror.
