The trailer for Candyman, the newest movie from Jordan Peele's Monkey Paw Studios just dropped online and everyone's talking about it.
Among the many terrifying aspects of the remake's trailer is their choice to use Destiny Child's "Say My Name," as its theme song.
No one has every felt that song was particularly creepy...until now.
People on Twitter were a little bit angry that Peele had ruined yet another R&B favorite.
