Candyman is the antagonist in the film series of the same name about an African-American who was lynched after the Civil War. As part of being tortured, he was covered in honey and stung to death by bees, and was taunted with the epithet "Candyman." The legend set up in the film claims that Candyman can be summoned by saying his name five times while facing a mirror, whereupon he will murder the summoner with a hook jammed in the bloody stump of his right arm.
Not long after Francine worries about Candyman escaping the films into the real world in "Fight and Flight", he later shows up and pulls her into a wall. She frantically tries to get Steve's attention in a locket to repeat her name the requisite number of times to return her to the real world, but he fails to see her.
