    CANDYMAN SPECIAL EDITION
    ************************************************** ****
    Featuring All-New Frightening Bonus Materials Available to Own (If You Dare) on August 17

    Culver City, CA (June 14, 2004) *- Delve deeper into the haunting world of one of
    modern cinema's most terrifying creations with the release of CANDYMAN SPECIAL
    EDITION. *This bone chilling special edition is packed with all new bonus features including
    director's commentary, Clive Barker featurette, and more will debut on DVD August 17, just in
    time for Halloween from Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment. * CANDYMAN SPECIAL
    EDITION is priced to collect at $19.94 SLP. *From the chilling imagination of cult favorite
    writer/producer Clive Barker (Hellraiser), CANDYMAN stars Virginia Madsen (The Hot Spot,
    Brave New Girl) and Tony Todd (Final Destination) in a gruesome modern-day thriller that
    became an instant horror masterpiece.

    Synopsis:
    A children's ghost story comes to terrifying life in this gut-wrenching thriller about a
    graduate student whose research into modern folklore summons the spirit of the dead. *Helen
    Lyle (Madsen) laughs when she interviews college freshmen about their superstitions. *But when
    she hears about the urban legend of Candyman, a slave spirit with a hook hand who is said to
    haunt Chicago's notorious Cabrini-Green housing project, she thinks she has a new twist for her
    thesis. *Braving the gang-ridden territory to visit the site of a brutal murder, Helen arrogantly
    assumes Candyman can't really exist - until she says his name in the mirror five times and he
    appears, igniting a string of tragic slayings. *But the police don't believe in ghosts, and they
    charge Helen with the grisly crimes. *Now only one person can set her free - CANDYMAN!

    Co-starring Xander Berkeley (TV's "24"), Kasi Lemmons (The Silence of the Lambs) and
    Vanessa L. Williams (TV's "Soul Food"), CANDYMAN was skillfully directed by Bernard
    Rose (Immortal Beloved).
