Factual error: When Virginia Madsen's character sees Candyman in the mental hospital, a male nurse calls for the injection of 1000 milliliters of sedative to calm her down. 1000 milliliters is equal to 1 liter, which certainly could not be injected, let alone as fast as it was.
Helen hears the baby crying in the junk pile and searches through it using a hook as a climbing tool. The little boy sees someone climbing through the pile, and mistakes Helen's hook for Candyman's. The citizens of Cabrini-Green set ablaze the junk pile into a huge bonfire. Helen finds the baby, but Candyman grabs Helen. Helen stabs Candyman with a burning stake. Candyman dies in the fire. But Helen gets caught in the rubble, and is set aflame herself. She brings her burning body out of the fire, but keeping the baby safe. She hands the baby to his mom before she dies. At Helen's funeral, the little boy drops Candyman's hook into her grave. A year later, Trevor is living with the girl from his class. He walks up to the bathroom mirror and says her name 5 times. She appears behind him and guts him with Candyman's hook.
Trivia: Part of the film was actually shot at the infamous Cabrini-Green housing projects. The crew had to pay off members of local street-gangs in order to maintain a peaceful shoot. (Although allegedly, one bullet was fired at a production vehicle during photography).
