Continuity mistake: The first time Helen is at Cabrini Green and she goes through the medicine cabinet into the other apartment she has to actually crawl through the small opening in the wall where the medicine cabinet is, but when she goes back at the end to find the baby the hole in the wall has grown considerably, she just crouches and walks right through.
Helen hears the baby crying in the junk pile and searches through it using a hook as a climbing tool. The little boy sees someone climbing through the pile, and mistakes Helen's hook for Candyman's. The citizens of Cabrini-Green set ablaze the junk pile into a huge bonfire. Helen finds the baby, but Candyman grabs Helen. Helen stabs Candyman with a burning stake. Candyman dies in the fire. But Helen gets caught in the rubble, and is set aflame herself. She brings her burning body out of the fire, but keeping the baby safe. She hands the baby to his mom before she dies. At Helen's funeral, the little boy drops Candyman's hook into her grave. A year later, Trevor is living with the girl from his class. He walks up to the bathroom mirror and says her name 5 times. She appears behind him and guts him with Candyman's hook.
Anne-Marie McCoy: White people never come 'round here except to cause us a problem.
Helen Lyle: Believe me, that's not what we want to do.
Trivia: For the infamous scene in which Candyman's body is covered with bees, and he opens his mouth, allowing bees to spill out while he kisses Helen, actual bees were used. The only real "effect" in the sequence was a hidden mouth-guard in Tony Todd's mouth, to keep the bees from going down his throat.
Question: What did Candyman mean when he told Helen it was always her? Why was he so interested in Helen?
