But where will Candyman live now?

Over the last decade, Cabrini-Green, the urban nightmare that was the location for 1992's Candyman has been undergoing a total makeover, and the buildings that were a black eye for Chicago are almost gone, replaced by expensive housing and upscale commercial development. Here you see the stop-motion destruction of one of cinematic Horror's most recognizable landmarks. Candyman is looking for new digs, Jarheads. Time to head to the mirror...

There's plenty of places Candyman can go to in the south side of Chicago...**shivers**

Man, forget about Cabrini Green - I want to know what the hell happened to director Bernard Rose! The guy directed two of my faves - Paperhouse and Candyman and then...? I know he's done a few things since but nothing I've seen and nothing I've heard great things about. A shame, as at one time he clearly had talent to spare.

Wow impressive find here, but I cant necessarily say that the slum will be missed

Where did Candyman live in the original story? Some horrid place in the U.K. but I don't recall if was an actual location.
