Researching urban folklore, a University of Chicago student (Virginia Madsen) snoops around the housing projects of Cabrini Green to find more about the legend of the Candyman (Tony Todd) who supposedly appears (whenever one looks into the mirror and repeats his name five times) to slash his victims with a metal hook. This unsettling feature is based on a short story by Clive Barker.'

The film's spooky atmosphere is accentuated by Anthony B. Richmond's cinematography and Philip Glass's score. (Janet Maslin, New York Times)
