Directed by Bernard Rose | 1992

With Tony Todd, Virginia Madsen, Xander Berkeley

“Candyman…Candyman…” Say his name five times in front of a mirror and the hook-handed serial killer spirit—the murdered son of slaves—appears. Or so the legend goes… Set in Chicago’s now-demolished Cabrini-Green housing projects, this Clive Barker adaptation features Tony Todd as a memorable—and terrifying—antihero in a film rich in compelling racial and social commentary. Bonus: an ultra-unsettling Philip Glass score.
