Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is Anthony, an artist living in a loft that exists on the old land of Cabrini-Green – an infamous Chicago housing project and where Candyman was born – now torn down and completely gentrified. He becomes obsessed with the legend, which is about conjuring the hooked-armed killer by saying his name five times in a mirror. As Anthony gets in deeper, secrets from his life start to intertwine with the Candyman, and the horror that had laid dormant is now revived.
