I just wanted the movie to get to the damn point...
Despite some good things around the fringes, Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh is an admirable, but not quite fulfilling, follow-up.
Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh is content to rely on easy jolts and an overabundance of fake-out scares, rather than hard-earned suspense.
Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh is a rather pointless sequel that basically rehashes the story from the first film, with a little desperately added history of the titular character thrown in in an effort to differentiate it from its predecessor.
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
...esentially a retread of the original.
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.
This lame sequel 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.
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.
ha tony Todd is such a has-been now. i saw an interview of hin talking about working on the Crow and he was talking about how mysterious his character is and breaking down his personality and everything, its like dude, youre 1 line in the movie was "they call him the avenger". man thats dynamic! how did Tony Todd not get an Oscar for the Crow!? cmon people
Just as compelling and creepy as the original Candyman movie. I was spooked once again!
The setting is New Orleans this time, during the Carnival.
The first film had a huge bonfire; this one has a huge flood of water; for a spectacular memorable end sequence.
