The original film centered on a grad student researching superstitions in a housing project in Chicago. There she learns about the Candyman (Tony Todd), a hook-handed figure of urban legend that some believe to be responsible for a recent murder. After a mysterious man matching the Candyman’s description begins stalking her, she comes to fear the legend may be all too real.
