Films: Candyman (1992), Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh (1995), Candyman: Day of the Dead (1999)
Alias: Danielle Robitalle
Location: Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: As with previous demonic killers, belief is a very powerful conduit for power. But no one relies on it more than this guy. A modern Bloody Mary in the form of a guy with a VERY interesting relationship with bees. The Candyman.
History: Once a slave in New Orleans, Daniel Robitaille was publicly tortured and humiliated after trying to court his master's daughter. He got his right hand chopped off, his body slathered in honey (a kid called him Candy Man for that), and death by hundreds of bee stings. His restless soul soon inhabited a mirror he was taunted with. Now, his spirit is the stuff of urban legends, stating that if you say his name five times in a mirror, he will come and kill you. But Candyman is more interested in making people believe in him so that he lives forever as a God of fear and vengeance.
Notable Kills: Almost all kills involve him ripping his hook arm up someone's back.
Final Fate: Candyman is thwarted time and time again. His defeats include burning up in a botched scheme to live forever, getting shattered to pieces when his original mirror got the same treatment, and finally burning away for good after the destruction of the painting that gave him relevance in the first place.
Powers/Abilities: Candyman's main supernatural power is to control a swarm of deadly bees that inhabit his body.
Weakness: Simply not saying his name, the destruction of any mementos related to him.
Scariness Factor: 4-This killer's horrific true form, gravely voice, and absolutely visceral ability with a hook make him out to be one of the scarier killers around. The only thing holding him back is the fact that you simply shouldn't say his name in front of a mirror. I mean, there's a five name limit! That's pretty generous.
Trivia: -Candyman was played by Tony Todd, Who would later go on to have the dubious honor of voicing the titular villain of "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen". Would you believe that Eddie Murphy was considered for the role of the killer?
-The making of the first film was wrought with faults. Gang members had to be promised roles as extras, a sniper tried to kill people, the lead actress was severely allergic to bees, and oh, there were no fake bees. Tony had to spit real bees out. Think on that.
