Well would you?

I am too scared to so if you have can you let me know if you survived wink and also if the scary bee man came to get you or something else happened.

I was pondering this in the shower this morning and can think of no other group of people who would be so brave so I am putting it to you.

Thank you for your assistance.

You do know it's only a film?


And no, not a chance.

I get scared just looking in the mirror without any references to the Candyman.

Have done it several times when I was younger - was a bit of a regular dare between friends. I'm still here, alive and well.

There was another one of saying something into a mirror three times, was it Mary or something, can't fully remember. Never did that one though, it wasn't from a film so felt slightly more real and scary.

Hail Mary prayer iirc. Or was it backwards?

Isn't there some story, probably from a film, about saying the Lords Prayer backwards whilst looking into a mirror, and the Devil will appear behind you. I've never tried it, it scares me now to think about it!

The Devil yikes he is a lot worse than the Candyman. Now truly scared at the possibility.

Glad there are survivors though, I wasn't sure if it happened every time or just to the fateful few ladies in movies!

No but I regularly stand in front of the mirror and say 'Charlize Theron' three times, but nothing happens.

If you say "you talkin' to me?" 3 times in the mirror, the phone will ring.

When you answer it, you'll be told a time.

When that time runs out, there'll be a taxi waiting outside.

I've still never seen this film... I think it might ruin my fragile little mind frown

Never ever, not even if I was banging Jessica Alba from behind in front of it and she insisted at the vinegar strokes. (a fairly plausible scenario)

In that scenario I'd be all done by the second 'candyman'.
