Common Craig / Nicole

Welcome to the Summer of Clive. A series of episodes celebrating films based on the works of Clive Barker. First up, we venture into Candyman country, Cabrini Green, Chicago, Illinois. The urban legend seems to have its hook right at the throat of this community. But is it the urban legend? Or is it all too real? Writer/Director, Bernard Rose, reveals the secret in Candyman (1992), his movie adaptation of the Clive Barker short story, "The Forbidden." Will you be foolish enough to look in the mirror and say his name five times? Just don't look in the mirror and say Common Craig five times, please. I cannot guarantee that I'm wearing pants.
