Candyman

Visible crew/equipment: When Helen and the Candyman are in the psychiatrists' office, Candyman flies out of the window backwards. If you look very carefully, you can see the harness that pulls him backwards.

Visible crew/equipment: When Virginia Madsen and her friend are in her apartment, and are about to check out the mirror, they walk down a long hallway. At the beginning of this shot, they both pass the camera and it begins to follow them, displaying a shadow on their shirts as well as the wall. (00:13:40)

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.

Suggested correction: The hole became bigger because the Candyman is there now. Do you expect him to crawl?

I don't expect him to have to go through the opening at all since he is the Candyman. He can get into places without walking through a physical opening.

Trivia: The film is notable for featuring a sympathetic but still truly evil African American villain (garbed in a black long-coat) and for exploring the harsh conditions poor African American families are often forced to live under. This is actually quite ironic, as in the original short story by Clive Barker ("The Forbidden"), the action all takes place in England and the Candyman is portrayed as an incredibly pale white man with long, blonde hair and an weirdly colorful coat made up of patches of different materials.

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.
