Candyman on VHS. Starring Virginia Madsen, Xander Berkeley, Tony Todd, Kasi Lemmons. Based on “The Forbidden” by Clive Barker. Directed by Bernard Rose. 1992.
From the VHS cover:
Stand in front of the mirror, turn off the light, and chant the word “Candyman” five times. Then he’ll appear behind you… if you believe.
A children’s ghost story comes to terrifying life in this gut-wrenching thriller about a graduate student whose research into modern folklore summons the spirit of the dead. Helen Lyle laughs when she interviews college freshman about their superstitions. But when she hears about Candyman, a slave spirit with a hook hand who is said to haunt Chicago’s notorious Cabrini-Green housing project, she thinks she has a new twist for this thesis. Braving the gang-ridden territory to visit the site of a brutal murder, Helen arrogantly assumes Candyman can’t really exist… until he appears, igniting a string of terrifying, tragic slayings. But the police don’t believe in monsters, and they charge Helen with the grisly crimes. And only one person can set her free. Candyman.
