Description

This is a single non-series episode.



In the 1992 horror cult-classic film Candyman, curiosity takes a grad student places she never thought she’d find herself. Our lead, Helen Lyle, played by Virginia Madsen, is a young white woman who wanders into Chicago’s Near North Side housing projects. She is there to research an urban legend - chant ‘Candyman’ 5 times in front of a mirror and a one-armed maniac with a knife will appear.



This concept is reminiscent of the ‘Bloody Mary’ legend that terrified many of us as kids. The idea you could be alone in the safety of your own home and suddenly have a violent predator in front of you is more than a little unsettling.
