The Candyman, a murderous soul with a hook for a hand, is accidentally summoned to reality by a skeptic grad student researching the monster's myth.

[first lines]
Candyman: They will say that I have shed innocent blood. What's blood for, if not for shedding?
Candyman: Your death will be a tale to frighten children, to make lovers cling closer in their rapture. Come with me, and be immortal.
Claire: If you look in the mirror and you say his name 5 times, he'll appear behind you breathing down your neck
Candyman: I am the writing on the wall, the whisper in the classroom! Without these things, I am nothing. So now, I must shed innocent blood. COME WITH ME!
Candyman: It was always you, Helen.
Candyman: The pain, I can assure you, will be exquisite. As for our deaths, there is nothing to fear. Our names will be written on a thousand walls. Our crimes told and retold by our faithful believers. We shall die together in front of their very eyes and give them something to be haunted by. Come with me and be immortal.
[repeated line]
Candyman: Be my victim.
Candyman: Why do you want to live? If you would learn just a little from me, you would not beg to live. I am rumor. It is a blessed condition, believe me. To be whispered about at street corners. To live in other people's dreams, but not to have to be. Do you understand?
Gang Leader: [to Helen] I hear you're looking for Candyman, bitch. Well, you found him!
[knocks Helen to the floor with the back of a hook]
Candyman: [to Helen Lyle] You are not content with the stories, so I was obliged to come.
Helen Lyle: What's the matter, Trevor? Scared of something?
Helen Lyle: We've got a real shot here, Bernadette. An entire community starts attributing the daily horrors of their lives to a mythical figure.
