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.scaryterri
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.
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.
Bernadette 'Bernie' Walsh: This is sick, Helen! This isn't one of your fairytales, a woman got killed here.
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.
