Candyman (1992)

A bone chiller with political undertones, this film, set in the Chicago housing projects, follows a graduate student investigating the urban legend of a slave's son with hooks for hands, who terrorizes people under the name Candyman. Legend has it, say his name five times and he comes back to slash anyone in sight.
