Most of you likely knew that Candyman, the current box-office hit, is a remake of an earlier movie.

But did you know it’s also an adaptation of a work of literature?

Literary Hub alerted us to the fact that Candyman was inspired by Clive Barker’s 1985 short story “The Forbidden.”

You can read that tale in the collection The Books of Blood Volume 5, or you can listen to it on YouTube.
