Weapon(s) of Choice
Hook and Bees
Candyman was the titular antagonist of the horror movie of the same name, although a brutal killer and demonic spirit he has an especially tragic past compared to most horror icons which arguably made him more sympathetic - though he was nevertheless just as dangerous and deadly as any other slasher movie antagonist.

Candyman found a solution to his nightmares within the Dream World.
A demon who can set him free from his haunting past.
Freddy offered him to put an end to his curse.
But Candyman must do a little something for him first.
The promise of freedom made Candyman even stronger.
Immortal between two worlds, the Cenobites had no power over him.
But Freddy betrayed Candyman, he used him to defeat Pinhead.
He broke a mirror and used his power to trap them both forever.
That was a mistake, Candyman wasn't stupid, he never trusted Freddy.
He anchored his soul in Freddy's reality when they made their pact.
Candyman came back surprising Freddy and easily defeated him.
But Freddy managed to escape to some dark corner of Dream World.
He released Pinhead from the mirror and decided no to fight them,
it wasn't his battle and they couldn't help him anyway.
