This film centres around an urban legend; apparently saying the name "Candyman" five times while looking in the mirror makes the hook handed fiend appear and gut you. Urban legends are common but in this Clive Barker penned story the legend is in fact true and a number of unfortunate teens find out the hard way. Virginia Madsen plays a university student who investigates and finds the truth about who the Candyman is. For all intents and purposes this is a clichéd slasher flick with an uninspiring killer character and an unsatisfying, contrived plot.
Gore - lots of blood, some slashing and a bit of hook action from the Candyman
