Nia DaCosta’s “Candyman” was released in the summer of 2021 to strong reviews for her direction, her handling of the film’s themes, and the score by composer Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe. Robert was kind enough to spend some time talking with us about his haunting work on the film, which has been shortlisted for Best Original Score at this year’s Academy Awards. If nominated, it would be one of the very rare times a horror movie has had its score nominated for an Oscar. You can take a listen to the discussion down below. Enjoy!
