Candyman found a solution to his nightmares within the Dream World.

A demon who can set him free from his haunting past.

Freddy offered him to put an end to his curse.

But Candyman must do a little something for him first.


The promise of freedom made Candyman even stronger.

Immortal between two worlds, the Cenobites had no power over him.

But Freddy betrayed Candyman, he used him to defeat Pinhead.

He broke a dream mirror and used his power to trap them both forever.

That was a mistake, Candyman wasn't stupid, he never trusted Freddy.

He anchored his soul in Freddy's reality when they made their pact.

Candyman came back surprising Freddy and easily defeated him.

But Freddy managed to escape to some dark corner of the Dream World.

He released Pinhead from the mirror and decided not to fight them,

it wasn't his battle and they couldn't help him anyway.
