Candyman 2: Farewell to the Flesh ★ 1994 (R)

Explains the origins Athof the urban bogeyman called Candyman—the man, the hook, and the bees. Rehashes the same old scare tactics from previous and better horror movies and uses cheesy special effects. The sensual background of New Orleans during Mardi Gras can't help this stale sequel. Embrace this “Farewell” from a distance. Based on stories by Clive Barker. 99m/C VHS, DVD . Tony Todd, Kelly Rowan, Veronica Cartwright, Timothy Carhart, William O'Leary, Bill Nunn, Fay Hauser, Joshua Gibran Mayweather; D: Bill Condon; W: Rand Ravich, Mark Kruger; C: Tobias Schliessler; M: Philip Glass.
