A children's ghost story comes to terrifying life in this thriller about a graduate student whose research into modern folklore summons the spirit of the dead.

Helen Lyle (Virginia Madsen) laughs when she interviews college freshmen about their superstitions. But when she hears about Candyman, a slave spirit with a hook hand who is said to haunt Chicago's Cabrini-Green housing project, she thinks she has a new twist for this thesis.

Tony Todd stars as Candyman, and composer Philip Glass provides an iconic score. See the original on the big screen before the Jordan Peele-produced "spiritual sequel" is released in 2020!
