[Reviews by cornholio and Maynard. Plus, my first review.]
Helen (Virginia Madsen) wants to write a thesis about urban legends. Among them, the legend of the Candyman: if you say his name five times into the mirror, he will come through it and kill you. Her research takes Helen to a run down apartment complex that have been haunted by a series of murders. Bit by bit Helen comes to believe that the Candyman actually exists.
I already liked Candyman when I saw it the first time, but I think I liked it even better the second time around and I loved getting to see it on a big screen.
