Based on Clive Barker’s short story “The Forbidden”
Tony Todd, Vanessa Williams, Kasi Lemmons
To turn his short story “The Forbidden” into an acclaimed Hollywood film, Clive Barker swapped the setting from a UK tenement to a Chicago housing project and brought in some major talent. There’re Tony Todd, Vanessa Williams, Kasi Lemmons, Virginia Madsen – even a score by avant garde composer Phillip Glass. When it was released, Candyman managed that rare feat of wowing both critics and movie-goers. Its success led to two sequels, Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh and Candyman 3: Day of the Dead.
