About this event

Dare you say his name five times? From the chilling imagination of horror master Clive Barker (Hellraiser, Nightbreed), comes Candyman – one of the greatest horror movies of the ’90s.

When grad student Helen Lyne (Virginia Madsen) begins working on a thesis about urban legends, she comes across the terrifying tale of the Candyman – a vengeful, hook-handed spirit who can be summoned by saying his name five times in the mirror. As her research leads her into the bowels of Chicago’s deprived housing projects and deeper into the Candyman’s world, Helen learns that some legends are best left well alone.

Expertly directed by British filmmaker Bernard Rose (Paperhouse) and boasting an astounding score by composer Philip Glass, Candyman ingeniously reworks Clive Barker’s original short story “The Forbidden” (originally published as part of his groundbreaking Books of Blood series) into a modern horror parable that remains as timely today as ever.

“Wonderfully playing against expectation, Candyman leaves you wondering where the story will go next, something missing in most horror movies.” – Monica Castillo, Bitch Media

“This Candyman can elicit some bona fide shivers while the picture that bears his name is high-caliber horror in its purest, most primal form.” – Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
