The thesis research of folklore graduate student Helen Lyle (Virginia Madsen) leads her into the urban underworld of Chicago`s Cabrini Green housing projects. There the residents are genuinely terrified of Candyman (Tony Todd), a legendary figure with a hook for a hand. Skeptical, she `summons` him in front of a mirror and discovers with horror that he`s real and very deadly. This surprisingly taut horror thriller is based on Clive Barker`s `The Forbidden`. Barker also executive-produces.
