(2 votes)

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.

Continuity mistake: When the Candyman breaks the window to escape the psychiatrist's office at the hospital, there are shards of glass in the frame. In subsequent shots, when Helen, or Virginia Madsen, goes to the window, all of the glass has been cleared.

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: There is a major issue that I've never seen addressed. Candyman kidnaps baby Anthony the day Helen is in Anne Marie's apartment. She is then arrested and bailed out later that day. Then the following day Candyman kills Bernadette and Helen is hospitalized. A month later she meets with Dr Burke. So at minimum we have a month and a day that Candyman has the newborn. Who cares for the baby who an entire month? Candyman?

Answer: I don't see how it's a major issue. It's pretty obvious we are to presume that Candyman takes care of the baby in the meantime so he can use it for his plan.

Answer: There is a scene where Candyman feeds the infant some honey. There isn't a need to stretch one's imagination to determine that he is the one that takes care of the infant during the entire period in question.
