9 Movies Like Candyman (2021)

Sherman Fields was a homeless man with a hook for a hand who was well-known in the Cabrini-Green housing projects in Chicago in the year 1977 for providing candy to the children who lived there. The police were looking for him. Around the time of Halloween, he was accused of concealing a razor blade in a piece of candy that later made its way into the possession of a white girl. After some time has passed, Fields approaches a young guy while he is doing the laundry inside of an apartment complex. As a result of being frightened by his presence, the child screams, which prompts the cops to come and kill Fields by beating him. After two weeks, there are other reports of razor blades being found in confectionery, and Sherman is eventually exonerated posthumously.

In the year 2019, visual artist Anthony McCoy resides in Chicago with his longtime partner, Brianna Cartwright, who is the director of an art gallery. After hearing the urban legend of Helen Lyle from Brianna’s brother, Troy, Anthony decides to check out the Cabrini–Green housing projects in the hopes of finding inspiration there. Troy asserts that Helen abducted a child and then embarked on a murderous rampage before setting herself on fire. Anthony meets William Burke, the proprietor of the laundromat, who tells him about the legend of the Candyman and confesses that he was the small child who saw the police officers beat Sherman Fields to death. Burke also tells Anthony that he was the Candyman. Burke seems to be implying that if someone speaks “Candyman” five times to a mirror, the ghost of Sherman will arrive and kill the person who is summoning him. In the later hours of that day, Anthony, despite Brianna’s protests, calls upon Candyman.
