Summary

Skeptical graduate student Helen Lyle  befriends Anne-Marie McCoy while researching superstitions in a housing project on Chicago's Near North Side. From Anne-Marie, Helen learns about the Candyman, a knife-wielding figure of urban legend that some of her neighbors believe to be responsible for a recent murder.
