Candyman (1992) Helen Lyle is writing a paper on urban legends when she hears about the Candyman, who was once an ex-slave-turned-artist name Daniel Robitaille, who had an affair his client's daughter. Robitaille's right hand was sawn off, he was covered in honey, and stung to death by bees. If anyone says the word "Candyman" five times in a mirror, he'll appear behind that person, a bloody hook as a replacement for his hand, and kill him. A series of unsolved murders is happening in the Cabrini Green projects and Helen is using this to help with her paper. The residents say the Candyman is to blame, but Helen doesn't believe it. Until she meets the man with a hook for a hand. Now, he's begun to murder her friends and no one believes her. Can Helen clear her name and stop the Candyman from killing anyone else?

More Movie Taglines:
  • We Dare You To Say His Name Five Times!
  • You don't have to believe... just beware.
  • Candyman, Candyman, Candyman, Candyman... Don't Say Again!
  • From The Chilling Imagination Of Clive Barker.
Movie Quote(s):
  • Claire: If you look in the mirror and you say his name 5 times, he'll appear behind you breathing down your neck
  • [first lines] Candyman: They will say that I have shed innocent blood. What's blood for, if not for shedding?
  • Candyman: [to Helen Lyle] You are not content with the stories, so I was obliged to come.
  • Helen Lyle: What's the matter, Trevor? Scared of something?
  • Candyman: I am the writing on the wall, the whisper in the classroom! Without these things, I am nothing. So now, I must shed innocent blood. COME WITH ME!
Movie Trivia:
  • There is a Guy Fawkes mask hanging next to Helen's bathroom mirror. Fawkes is an infamous figure in English history (an influence from Clive Barker's original story perhaps), who attempted to blow up the English Parliament on November 5, 1605. Every year the British celebrate Guy Fawkes Day by lighting bonfires and burning Fawkes in effigy.
  • Virginia Madsen claims that she was hypnotized for some of the film's scenes.
  • "Sweets to the Sweet" which is written on the walls in two areas of Cabrini Green is actually a line from Shakespeare's Hamlet.
  • Virginia Madsen is allergic to bees, so an ambulance was always on set while filming the bee sequence.
  • Real bees were actually put into Tony Todd's mouth while they where shooting the climax. His only protection was a mouth guard that kept him from having the bees go down his throat.
