EP43 - Candyman and the Fear of "Urban Society"


It's another Halloween episode! This time we're going to focus on Candyman, a 1992 film that plays off a white, middle class audience's fear of "urban society": their fears urban housing projects and the residents living there, all fueled by underlying racism and anti-miscegenation.
