This contemporary reincarnation of the cult classic is brought back onto the big screen in blistering fashion. The housing projects of Chicago's Cabrini Green neighbourhood were terrorised by a word-of-mouth ghost story about a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to repeat his name five times into a mirror. Visual artist Anthony and his art gallery director girlfriend move into a newly gentrified apartment on the site of the original housing project. His career stalled, he becomes obsessed with the urban legend of the Candyman.
