Helen Lyle, a student interested in urban legends, learns of the Candyman myth - a serial killer with a hook for a hand, who is summoned by saying his name five times in front of a mirror. Helen decides to visit the places where, according to rumours, he makes his appearances. This proximity to the killer unleashes a series of horrendous murders. Adapted from the tale “The Forbidden” by Clive Barker about the inequalities of the British class system in his hometown of Liverpool. Fellow countryman, Bernard Rose, adapts it to modern Chicago and creates a supernatural supervillain that Tony Todd's performance would make iconic. Particular mention to the soundtrack by Philip Glass.
