She visits a part of the town, where she learns about the legend of the Candyman, a one-armed man who appears when you say his name five times, in front of a mirror. Of course, Helen doesn’t believe all this stuff, but the people of the area are really afraid. When she ignores their warnings and begins her investigation in the places that he is rumored to appear, a series of horrible murders begins. Could the legend be true?
Plot: The Candyman, a murderous soul with a hook for a hand, is accidentally summoned to reality by a skeptic grad student researching the monster’s myth.

* * * out of 4.
College student (Virginia Madsen) decides to write a paper on a slave (Tony Todd) who was killed for simply being in love with a white woman. Legend has it if you call out his name several times, he will appear and kill you to avenge his death. Naturally Madsen is disbelieving of this, but Todd starts butchering off all of her friends and framing her in order to make her believe.
This film is so intense and frightening, that when I first saw this on home video with all of the lights on, I actually had to call my mother and get her to come over and comfort me, because this film scared me to death. Tony Todd is perfect in a menacing performance as the villain and Virginia Madsen makes the perfect victim capturing the right balance between terror and disbelief. The myths and legends behind the film are so complex and so fascinating that this film could have gone on for at least another hour and not be one bit overlong. There is plenty of characterization and atmosphere and the settings for the film are very well chosen. However, working somewhat against the film are some of the supporting actors, poor special effects, and an ultra gimmickey ending that feels as though it belongs in another film given the tone and subject matter of this film.
Rated R; Graphic Violence, Profanity, and Brief Nudity.
It ranks up there with the best
I am a horror buff, and i have to say that Candyman is a masterpiece of modern horror. Candyman should be compulsory viewing for anyone making a horror/thriller movie as an educational tool. It has the best soundtrack that i’ve ever heard in its genre, and, where there is elements of horror, it is not exploitative. The whole movie is created with an eye for sensitivity, while at the same time shocking the hell out of you. Liam, you don’t know what you are talking about. Texas Chainsaw Massacare is a sick perversion, not horror. Candyman is a classic and will be popular for years to come. The ending is exquisite, and is a fitting end to a brilliant movie.
