CANDYMAN
1992, Sony Repertory, 99 min, USA, Dir: Bernard Rose

Perhaps the greatest horror film of the ’90s is this cerebral and chilling classic by director Bernard Rose, based on Clive Barker's short story “The Forbidden.” Virginia Madsen plays a grad student researching urban legends when she comes across the tale of Candyman, a frightening one-armed man who appears when you say his name into a mirror five times; he’s played brilliantly by Tony Todd. Score by Philip Glass.
