Daniel Robitaille, colloquially known as Candyman is a fictional character and the main antagonist of the Candyman series of films, originating from Clive Barker's 1985 short story, "The Forbidden". In the film series, he was portrayed as the vengeful ghost of an African-American man who was brutally beaten, mutilated and fed to the bees by having honey smeared on his body for a forbidden interracial love affair in the 19th century and would haunt and kill anyone who called the name of the Candyman before a mirror five times in a row, but sometimes also targeted those who openly denied the urban legend of his continued existence as a ghost. He was portrayed in Candyman (1992), Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh (1995) and Candyman: Day of the Dead (1999) by Tony Todd, he is set to reprise the role in the upcoming Candyman (2020) which will be a direct sequel to the original 1992 film.
