Overview
A children's ghost story comes to terrifying life in this gut-wrenching thriller about a graduate student whose research into modern folklore summons the spirit of the dead. Helen Lyle (Virginia Madsen) scoffs at superstition. But when she hears about Candyman (Tony Todd), a slave spirit with a hook hand said to haunt a notorious housing project, she has a new twist for her thesis. To prove Candyman doesn't exist, Helen heads to the site of a brutal murder to call for him by saying his name five times. To her horror, he appears, igniting a string of gruesome slayings. But the police don't believe in monsters, and Helen is charged with the grisly crimes. Only one person can set her free: Candyman.
