Alternate Versions (4)

  • Although the versions shown on Channel 4 TV and released on UK VHS video were completely uncut all DVD releases (including the 2006 Collector's Edition) feature the pre-cut R-rated US print. This version edits the killing of the psychiatrist by Candyman and shortens scenes of blood spurting towards Helen's face.
  • Unrated workprints (bootlegs) of Candyman also contain a more graphic beating of Virginia Madsen's character 'Helen' in the toilets by the black youths who enter into the toilet and who kick her several times on the floor while she bleeds profusely from the head wound inflicted from the blow by the hook of the main youth. This is cut in all regular prints
  • European version was cut by 12 minutes, the region 2 DVD restored it to 94 minutes from the original 86 minute version
  • German VHS-Tape rated "not under 18" is fully uncut, including a different much gorier version of the psychologist death than the R-Rated Cut.
