Anthony and his partner move into a loft in the now gentrified Cabrini-Green, and after a chance encounter with an old-timer exposes Anthony to the true story behind Candyman, he unknowingly opens a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifying wave of violence.
The original Candyman, a cult favourite based upon a short story by Clive Barker and directed by Bernard Rose, is a personal favourite and remains a landmark horror film for its racial politics (up there with Night of the Living Dead and The People Under the Stairs, the latter of which remains unsung but does have a cult following).
