Limited edition 40-page perfect-bound booklet reproducing the original hand-painted storyboards by Bernard Rose. Fully-illustrated collectors' booklet featuring new writing on the film by festival programmer Michael Blyth. 6 postcard-sized original UK lobby card reproductions. Reversible sleeve and poster featuring original and new artwork by Gary Pullin. Brand new restoration of the US R-rated version from a new 4K scan of the original negative, supervised and approved by writer-director Bernard Rose and director of photography Anthony B. Richmond. Dare you say his name five times? From the chilling imagination of horror master Clive Barker (Hellraiser, Nightbreed), comes Candyman - one of the greatest horror movies of the '90s, now newly restored on Blu-ray from Arrow Films. When grad student Helen Lyne (Virginia Madsen) begins working on a thesis about urban legends, she comes across the terrifying tale of the Candyman - a vengeful, hook-handed spirit who can be summoned by saying his name five times in the mirror. As her research leads her into the bowels of Chicago's deprived housing projects and deeper into the Candyman's world, Helen learns that some legends are best left well alone. Expertly directed by British filmmaker Bernard Rose (Paperhouse) and boasting an astounding score by composer Philip Glass, Candyman ingeniously reworks Clive Barker's original short story "The Forbidden" (originally published as part of his groundbreaking Books of Blood series) into a modern horror parable that remains as timely today as ever.
