  • Candyman (Candyman)
rdfs:comment
  • The Candyman was the titular main antagonist of the 1992 slasher horror movie of the same name and its sequels, based of off the short story "The Forbidden" form the anthology book Books of Blood, written by Clive Barker. Although a brutal killer and a vengeful spirit, Candyman has an especially tragic past compared to most horror icons, which arguably made him more sympathetic - though he was nevertheless just as dangerous and deadly as any other slasher movie antagonist. He is portrayed by Tony Todd, who also portrays Captain Darrow.

abstract
  • The Candyman was the titular main antagonist of the 1992 slasher horror movie of the same name and its sequels, based of off the short story "The Forbidden" form the anthology book Books of Blood, written by Clive Barker. Although a brutal killer and a vengeful spirit, Candyman has an especially tragic past compared to most horror icons, which arguably made him more sympathetic - though he was nevertheless just as dangerous and deadly as any other slasher movie antagonist. As with Clive Barker's earlier slasher icon, Pinhead, the character of Candyman was intentionally designed to be very charismatic and articulate, his main source of fear being derived from his warped sense of reasoning. He is portrayed by Tony Todd, who also portrays Captain Darrow.
