'Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh' (1995) Hook Worn by Tony Todd Now on Display in 'Scared to Death: The Thrill of Horror Film' Exhibition at MoPOP
Candyman. Candyman. Candyman. Candyman. Candyma...
Yeah, right, like we'd say that word five times in a row! Even if we're not technically in front of a mirror while reciting the deadly ritual, we're still not willing to take a chance at unleashing a vengeful spirit with a hook for a hand onto the world.
But, if you're feeling brave, head to the Museum of Pop Culture's Scared to Death: The Thrill of Horror Film exhibition now for an up-close-and-personal look at the Candyman hook worn by Tony Todd in the 1995 film Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh. The artifact comes to MoPOP this month from the collection of Bill Condon and has been installed just in time for October's spooky season.

And did you know? A sequel to the original Candyman (1992) horror film was released just last month. Written and produced by Jordan Peele, Candyman (2021) is now playing in theaters.
