The myth of Candyman has endured for generations. His legacy is eternal rage. Written and directed by Bernard Rose (Frankenstein), executive produced by Clive Barker (Nightbreed), and music by Philip Glass, CANDYMAN stars Virginia Madsen (Sideways, Dune), Tony Todd (Night of the Living Dead, The Crow), Xander Berkeley (“The Walking Dead”, Gattaca), and Kasi Lemmon (Eve’s Bayou, The Silence of the Lambs).

This gut-wrenching thriller follows a graduate student whose research summons the spirit of the dead! When Helen Lyle hears about Candyman, a slave spirit with a hook hand who is said to haunt a notorious housing project, she braves the gang-ridden territory to visit the site … and unwittingly ignites a string of terrifying, grisly slayings! But the police don’t believe in monsters and charge Helen with the crimes. And the only one who can set her free is Candyman.
