Dare you say his name five times? From the chilling imagination of horror master Clive Barker (Hellraiser, Nightbreed),
comes Candyman—one of the greatest horror movies of the '90s, now newly restored on Blu-ray from Arrow Video.
When grad student Helen Lyle (Virginia Madsen) begins working on a thesis about urban legends, she comes across the terrifying
tale of the Candyman—a vengeful, hook-handed spirit who can be summoned by saying his name five times in the mirror.
As her research leads her into the bowels of Chicago's deprived housing projects and deeper into the Candyman's world,
Helen learns that some legends are best left alone . . . Expertly directed by British filmmaker Bernard Rose (Paperhouse)
and boasting an astounding score by composer Philip Glass, Candyman ingeniously reworks Clive Barker s original
short story "The Forbidden" (originally published as part of his groundbreaking Books of Blood series) into
a modern horror parable that remains as timely today as ever.
"Audio Commentary-With Stephen Jones and Kim Newman, is by far better value; both have a genuine enthusiasm for the film and horror genre and their discussion is lively, varied and compliments the film at every turn."
"The second track finds critics Stephen Jones and Kim Newman putting their knowledge of the genre and the 1980s Crouch End literary horror scene to good use discussing Barker's original short story and the film itself."
