CandyMan Plot: What is it about?
The Candyman will not be a successor or a remake of the original film but will be somehow connected to the first. The film is set up in a fictional Universe where the incidents of the original took place. The film will be having similar story and theme. The original film focused on the character of Hylen Lyle who is a researcher of urban folklore. She gets to know about an intriguing man with supernatural attributes and gets interested to find out more about him. The man has a hook instead of a hand and looks quite deadly.
The legend has it that the Candyman appears and starts performing his duties when a person looks into the mirror and repeats his name five times. Lyle believes that she has someone become a part of the murders that the Candyman is committing. She fears of joining him in the world of misfortune and murders.
