CANDYMAN (1992)

U.S. | 99 mins | Dir. Bernard Rose | 35mm

Stand in front of the mirror, turn off the light, and chant the word "Candyman" five times. Then he'll appear behind you... if you believe.

A children's ghost story comes to terrifying life in this gut-wrenching thriller about a graduate student whose research into modern folklore summons the spirit of the dead. Helen Lyle (Virginia Madsen) laughs when she interviews college freshmen about their superstitions. But when she hears about Candyman, a slave spirit with a hook hand who is said to haunt Chicago's notorious Cabrini-Green housing project. She thinks she has a new twist for this thesis. Braving the gang-ridden territory to visit the site of a brutal murder, Helen arrogantly assumes Candyman can't really exist... until he appears, igniting a string of terrifying, tragic slayings. But the police don't believe in monsters, and they charge Helen with the grisly crimes. And only one person can set her free, Candyman. 


HELLRAISER III: HELL ON EARTH (1992)

U.S. | 97 mins | Dir. Anthony Hickox | 35mm

Some call him the Black Prince of Hell. Some call him the Angel of Suffering. To horror fans everywhere, he's Pinhead (Doug Bradley), the urbane, spike-faced minion of evil with a bloodlust for human souls. Now Pinhead's back in the most diabolical Hellraiser of them all - Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth!

TV reporter Joey Summerskill (Terry Farrell, Back to School) is on assignment at a local hospital when a bloodied teenage boy is rushed into the emergency room. As Joey watches, the writhing boy is literally torn apart by chains impaling his body. Fleeing the carnage, Joey follows the victim's girlfriend to a downtown nightclub, the Boiler Room. In the apartment above the Boiler Room rests the owner's newly purchased sculpture: a pillar etched with distorted figures and faces. Among the frozen images is Pinhead. Tonight, he shall be released.
