On Thursday, March 4, Candyman became a trending topic on Twitter after a woman who moved into a new apartment in New York City discovered a secret room behind her bathroom mirror and shared the experience on TikTok.
The woman, Samantha Hartsoe, decided to show off her bizarre find on the video-sharing platform after experiencing a cold breeze near her bathroom door frame and switch. Hartsoe explained that the bathroom in her new apartment was so cold even when she had the heat as high as possible.
Similar to a sequence from the 1992 horror film, she eventually came across a room hidden behind her bathroom vanity mirror.
After removing the mirror, at first glance there just seemed to be some wires hanging behind it. However, upon further investigation, she discovered that the hole led to a creepy secret room.
In one of the TikTok videos she uploaded of the ordeal, a man could be heard asking the question in everyone’s mind: “What if there was someone living there right now? ? Have you watched the movie Parasite? “
While the TikTok videos racked up millions of views, many remembered Candyman, a cult ’90s horror film about a graduate research student (played by Virginia Madsen) who while studying an urban legend local, discovers a lair hidden behind a bathroom mirror. in an abandoned building. The movie’s urban legend says that if you say Candyman’s name five times in front of a mirror, he will appear and kill the summoner with his hooked hand.
As for the real hidden room, there appear to be signs of life, with drink bottles and personal items scattered throughout the pspace. One can only imagine that the owner of Hartsoe will receive a very interesting phone call very soon.
