September 1, 2017 @ 9:15 pm

First Frightdays is a monthly horror showcase of the best new and old horror and suspense films on the first Friday of each month.

Eventbrite - First Frightdays: Candyman

“One of the best sustained horror movies for some years.” – Time Out

“A horror movie that was scaring me with ideas and gore, instead of simply with gore.” – Roger Ebert

Skeptical graduate student Helen Lyle (Virginia Madsen) befriends Anne-Marie McCoy (Vanessa Williams) while researching superstitions in a housing project on Chicago’s Near North Side. From Anne-Marie, Helen learns about the Candyman (Tony Todd), a knife-wielding figure of urban legend that some of her neighbors believe to be responsible for a recent murder. After a mysterious man matching the Candyman’s description begins stalking her, Helen comes to fear that the legend may be all too real. With a score by Philip Glass.

Dir. Bernard Rose. 1992. 99 min.
