The avenging 19th-century ghoul returns in this sequel to the 1992 sleeper Candyman. The character, based on a Clive Barker tale, was once the artist Daniel Robitaille in the post-war South. After being caught compromising the virtue of a plantation owner's daughter, whose portrait he was commissioned to paint, Robitaille had his hand sawn off and was then smothered in honey and left to be stung to death by angry bees. In this episode he goes to New Orleans for Mardi Gras where he begins bedeviling the wealthy Tennant family. The father, who has figured out how to get rid of the Candyman, is soon killed, leaving his son Ethan to take the fall. Now Ethan's sister Annie must find out how to stop Candyman before he strikes again. Her research leads her into the darkest underpinnings of Candy's grim life. … More

Critic Reviews for Candyman 2 - Farewell to the Flesh
Maybe "Farewell to the Franchise" would have been a more appropriate title - this retread of the very scary original is a mildly hilarious mess.
One heck of a scary movie
Superior sequel to the rather silly original helped by stylish direction
Horror fans might dig it a little bit; I'll just stick with the original.
Audience Reviews for Candyman 2 - Farewell to the Flesh
A lame sequel that is incoherent with regard to the first movie and full of cheap scares followed by some stupid exploding sound. But even worst is to see that the brilliant idea of Candyman being a living rumor is replaced by a ghost-in-the-mirror curse.More
Candyman 2- Farewell To The Flesh is a terrific follow up to Candyman. The story is set in New Orleans, and in this film we have a back story to the Candyman.The film surrounds a school teacher whos father was killed by the Candyman. The teachers brother is wrongfully accused of the murders and she seeks answers to the Candyman legend. Like I've mentioned, Farewell To The Flesh adds a back story and goes in depth on why the Candyman kills. We find out he was a slave in love with a white woman, and the woman bore him a child, the father of the woman was infuriated, and formed a lynch mob. They cut off his hand, and spread honey all over him, and he died of numerous bee stings. This sequel is pretty impressive and is almost as good as the original. But of course you can't beat the original film. Tony Todd gives a phenomenal performance as Candyman. Farewell To The Flesh is one creepy and entertaining sequel. Clive Barker produces this terrifying sequel, and the scares are top notch. Farewell To The Flesh is a terrific, underrated horror film that every Horror fan should check out. I really don't understand why this sequel has gotten such a bad rep. But in most case, ignore the negative critiques of this film, I am a diehard Horror fan and I thoroughly enjoyed this film. If you loved the first film, and you needed answers to the questions that you had, then this film might answer quite a few. A well made, and terrifying sequel.More
