Saying ‘Candyman’ Five Times into Your Microphone Unlocks Final Trailer on the Movie’s Official Website

A brand new official website for Nia DaCosta‘s Candyman has been launched this week, and with it comes a dare. Say his name… five times… into your computer’s microphone.

Found at IDareYou.CandymanMovie.com, the website utilizes your microphone to allow you to summon Candyman, and saying his name five times unlocks the film’s final trailer.

Mind you, this latest trailer doesn’t actually feature any new footage from the movie, releasing in theaters this weekend, but it’s a fun little challenge that we wanted to pass along. Once you’ve completed it, you can also save and share your summoning session.

Say his name… we dare you.

In Candyman, co-written by Jordan Peele, “For as long as residents can remember, the housing projects of Chicago’s Cabrini Green neighborhood were terrorized by a word-of-mouth ghost story about a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to repeat his name five times into a mirror. In present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, visual artist Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) and his girlfriend, gallery director Brianna Cartwright (Teyonah Parris), move into a luxury loft condo in Cabrini, now gentrified beyond recognition and inhabited by upwardly mobile millennials.”

“With Anthony’s painting career on the brink of stalling, a chance encounter with a Cabrini Green old-timer (Colman Domingo) exposes Anthony to the tragically horrific nature of the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony begins to explore these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, unknowingly opening a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifyingly viral wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny.”

Candyman returns to theaters on August 27, 2021.
