Stand in front of the mirror, turn off the light, and chant the the word "Candyman" five times. Then he'll appear behind you... if you believe.

Based the short story The Forbidden (
In The Flesh).
A children's ghost story comes to terrifying life in this gut-wretching thriller about a graduate student whose research into modern folklore summons the spirit of the dead. Helen Lyle[Virginia Madsen] laughs when she she interviews college freshmen about their superstitions. But when she hears about Candyman, a slve 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 realy 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.
