Corrected entry: Although "Candyman" is the title character, he does not appear until 44 minutes into the film.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Dr. Burke is with Helen, you'll see that he isn't saying anything right before he's killed because he, obviously, is holding the fake blood in his mouth, waiting to spit it out when he gets killed.
Corrected entry: When Virginia Madsen is reviewing her second set of slides from the Cabrini-Green she zooms in on a picture which shows the reflection of the Candyman. She does this by adjusting the focus on the lens of the slide projector. The focus on the lens of the projector would not provide zoom capability.
Corrected entry: In the flashback scene when the little boy is getting murdered in the public bathroom, you'll notice that while he's lying on the bathroom floor screaming his head off, his mouth is actually completely shut.
Corrected entry: If Purcell knew all about Candyman, that he even wrote a book about him, why didn't he tell Helen about saying his name in the mirror and what would happen? Why didn't he come to her aid when all the weird things started happening to her? He should've known all about that.
Corrected entry: When Candyman is in Helen's house, he digs his hook into Helen's neck obviously hitting her carotid artery. She would've either bled to death or caught a huge infection because when the cops arrived, they didn't even treat the deep wound. However, one month later, the huge wound is gone, not even with the trace of a scar. Definitely impossible.
