Not as good as the original, but it had some kind of a story that worked
I don't know why, but I decided to get into the Candyman sequels, I did
enjoy the first Candyman, so why not see the sequels? Tony Todd is an
awesome boogeyman as well, so I was kinda looking forward to seeing the
second Candyman and curious where the story was going. While the story
worked in some ways, I wasn't that thrilled about it. Not to mention I
didn't like the city change, I'm just filled with so much Chicago
pride, you know?
Annie is a school teacher and her brother is up on murder charges, he
is also being accused of murdering her father who was truly murdered by
the famous Candyman. Annie knows that her brother is innocent, but her
kids start to test her patience on the Candyman myth, to prove them
wrong, she calls to the Candyman and makes a big mistake. She finds out
that her great grandmother was the lover of Candyman and he wants her
now to bring out his past.
Candyman Farewell to the Flesh was an alright horror movie and the
story could've worked better, but it just seemed like your typical
horror sequel and it could be predictable at times. But the husband
dying, that was a pretty cool scene I have to admit. So, if you want
to, watch it, but it's nothing to get excited over.

Candyman:Farewell to the Flesh
I must say I was rather entertained by this ill-received sequel to the
original horror hit. I do admit that the film's explanation regarding
the origin of Daniel Robitaille's power seemed rather silly(the idea
that Candyman's soul was trapped in the mirror of his white lover
Caroline due to the extremities of his torment, hate & agony for what
the racist white township did to him), but the film has so many things
I enjoyed that I was actually able to look past it.
Annie(Kelly Rowan, many who watched THE OC might recognize her)is a
schoolteacher in New Orleans whose father died at the hook of the
Candyman. Her brother, Ethan(William O'Leary), is in jail for the
possible murder of a novelist(he wrote a novel about Candyman, was
asked by Ethan's father for help), who we see at the opening of the
film, calling out Candyman in front of a crowd at his book-signing.
Ethan furiously questions why the novelist didn't help his father and
later attempted to brawl with him in a bar. The novelist, who cynically
called on Candyman's name, enters the bar bathroom and is gutted.
Annie's mom, Octavia(Veronica Cartwright)hides a secret in a locked
drawer and we will find that it holds a key to a certain mystery
regarding their family and the Candyman. Annie has a student,
Matthew(Joshua Mayweather)who is plagued with dreams of the Candyman,
and to satisfy her frightened class that the "hooked-madmen from the
mirror" doesn't exist, calls his name across a reflection inviting true
horror into her life.
The film's mystery is what Candyman's relationship is to Annie. There's
a history here that Annie will seek answers for..but will she like what
that answer yields? I think why I enjoyed this more than I thought was
the atmospheric setting(Mardi Gras, New Orleans, mostly the slums
areas), the menacing Todd(an actor I'm quite fond of), the wonderful
Philip Glass score, Condon's photography, and the well-staged death
I won't lie to you, this is, above all, a slasher film and director
Bill Condon allows Candyman to do some damage in this sequel
penetrating quite a few victims through the torso with the hook
bursting through the stomach, often lifting them right in the
air..Condon, for added effect, often closes in on the horrified
expressions of those being thrusted through. My favorite sequence is
when Annie re-visits the home of her youth(which was a plantation house
with a slaves quarters nearby), follows a walkway into a large room
with an altar of candles and skulls enshrined to Candyman with this
incredible painted portrait on the wall above of him crying out in
anger with his hook and other arm reaching out.
There's a great scene where Detective Levesque(David Gianopoulos), who
believes wholeheartedly that Annie has been murdering people in the
fashion of Candyman with brother Ethan covering up for her, calls on
Candyman and is thrown through the interrogation room window after
being penetrated through..and extended in the air.. by the true
