Urban Legends


The Candyman is an urban legend that tells the scary story of a murdered slave who returns from the dead in search of revenge if you say his name five times. A horror movie was made in 1992 about the legend, followed by two sequels, starring Tony Todd as the Candyman. Read the story and find out how to play the Candyman Challenge.


According to the legend, if you look into a mirror and chant the name “Candyman” five times, he will appear behind you and kill you with his hook. For you see, the Candyman is a vicious killer with a bloody hook for a hand. He appears from the mirror, covered in blood and bees and he has nothing but murder on his mind.

They say that many years ago, the Candyman was a real man. Back in the days of slavery, Candyman was a black slave named Daniel Robitaille, who worked on a plantation in New Orleans. He was a talented painter and was chosen by the plantation owner to paint a portrait of his daughter.

But Daniel fell in love with the daughter of the white plantation owner. When the racist plantation owner discovered that his daughter and the slave were in love, he raised an angry mob and chased Daniel out of town.

Armed with pitchforks and a pack of dogs, they chased the poor slave across fields and streams. Finally, they caught up with the exhausted slave near an old barn. The evil men siezed Daniel and cut off his right hand with a rusty saw. Then they covered him in honey and threw him into a beehive.

The unfortunate Candyman was in terrible pain and died from his injuries, but not before he cursed the men who killed him and vowed to return and exact his revenge. They say his spirit would never rest and now his ghost walks the world for all eternity, appearing when his name is called five times.

So remember, you can say “Candyman” once, twice, three times or four. But never say it five times or you’ll be sorry!

  • Rage-Man99, its becuase mirrors are considered portals from the land of the living to the land of the dead. Its a a way for ghosts to cross over into this world.

  • !!!ATTENTION!!!
    Now that I got your attention I was in school and we decided we would try that and one of my friends went in the bathroom and said that my friend would try it and… she came out of the bathroom and started laughing saying “wow that worked well” but then she leaned down and scratched her ankle and she gasped and lifted her pant leg cried out and looked down and she had 3 deep scratches on her ankle and she hasn`t touched her ankle…

  • my dad told me about this….. no one knows why hes called candyman…. maybe its cause hes covered in honey?

  • Candyman ain’t all that scary I saw a movie and it was poor-_- not until at the end where that women became the candywoman and killed her husband….
