From Amazon.co.uk

Remember Candyman, Bernard Rose's fine 1993 urban-legend horror movie based on Clive Barker's screenplay? How about Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh, the inevitable but actually halfway decent second bite at the cherry? Well, in the time-honoured tradition of sequels having less to do with the original with every step down the filmic food chain, the third instalment in the saga of the hook-handed bogeyman had no input from Barker, contains no creepy Phillip Glass score and has no real connection to either of its predecessors in terms of plot. That is unless you count the goon of the title (Tony Todd), returning from whatever ethereal plane he usually resides in to put the wind up his--wait for it--great, great grandaughter, slack-jawed LA art gallery owner Caroline McKeever (Donna D'Errico, hitherto best known for her work on Baywatch).

Desperate to claim her soul so he can have a spot of companionship throughout the long days of eternity, Todd promptly sets about slicing and dicing various unfortunate Angelenos, making sure his last living relative gets the blame each and every time. Headed straight for the chair, can D'Errico save LA, and herself, from her heinous ancestor? And, more to the point, can she do so while walking and chewing gum at the same time? Dependent on huge amounts of viscera and its female lead's willingness to shed her clothes, this cheap knock-off still conjures the up the odd moment of unsettling gloom, while Todd is as reliably hammy as ever. All the same, you can't help hoping this is definitely, positively the last time round the block for the franchise: whatever you do, don't stand in front of any mirrors chanting "Candyman 4, Candyman 4, Candyman 4". The results will be horrific. --Danny Leigh

Product Description

Daniel Robataille (Tony Todd) was a black slave whose love for a white woman lead to him being gruesomely murdered by an angry mob. Centuries later, his last living descendent Caroline McKeever (Donna D'Errico) finds herself haunted by visions of murder and bloody torture, visions which soon give way to Robataille's terrible manifestation as the Candyman and his entreaty that she join him in his quest for bloody revenge.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bee my victim... 14 Mar 2014
Format:DVD
The ghostly serial killer returns once again from beyond the grave this time to haunt a Los Angeles art gallery owner named Caroline McKeever, a distant relative of the Candyman.

In order for him to claim her soul so she will be next to him, the Candyman goes about killing all those associated with Caroline in the usual gory ways with his hook and making it appear to the authorities that Caroline is the one responsible for the killings....

Tony Todd said in an interview in 2003 that he didn't really care for this movie.

And I wonder why? This film has to be one of the worse sequels ever to such a good first movie, and sadly, even from watching it from a 'straight to DVD third movie, so it could be cheesy fun' angle, the film has no redeeming qualities to it.

First off, the lead actress D'errico (the one from baywatch) has the most annoying scream in the world,and soon you wish she had a hook in her throat.

Secondly, Todd looks beyond bored, and in some scenes, it's as if he has had a drink, because words cannot explain his facial expressions.

It's plot is ripped from the first movie, right down to the best friend, and the inclusion of a silly twist at the end, makes the film even more ludicrous.

It's not even a film you can laugh at. It's one of those movies you will find yourself giving dirty looks, and hating yourself for watching it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Candyman 3: Day of the Dead 7 April 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have given this product 3 stars mainly because 'it is what it is' the third 'Candyman' movie in the trilogy. I purchased this for a friend of mine who is a horror movie fan and we both agreed that it is only for the real 'die hard' fans of the original movie because it does not follow on from the others very well and the acting from the cast is not the best. Thank you.

4.0 out of 5 stars About the same as Candyman 2 24 Nov 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It wasn't bad but wasn't great, I liked this about the same as Candyman 2, both really just leave unsatisfied and wanting more but it's entertaining at the least. It was definitely worth the 2 I paid for it. I realize this is the most hated in the series but I really don't see why because it's not terrible and is probably the best you'd get in terms of a 2nd Candyman sequel especially a straight to video one. The first one is obviously the best, not all fans of the 1st would like this but if you liked Candyman 2 as well you should probably give this one a watch. Tony Todd gives an okay performance but isn't as creepy as in the first, seems more focused on gore this time around. The lead girl is pretty sexy too (: I would rate this about a 3.5/5 but I gave it a 5 to bump up its amazon rating as I think 2.5 is a bit too low.

1.0 out of 5 stars And one star is being generous. 8 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Cinema goers were literally terrified to death a few years ago when Candyman was first released. Many people called out accross the world for Clive Barker's masterpiece to be banned and there are reports that the final version was significantly censored. Then came Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh, a much more graphically violent and gory film which was used to provide more background to the myth and although not as good as the original (are they ever?) it was still very watchable. However, along comes the third installment. The Candyman was killed in the first two and like the second film, he is once again back with some half-hearted attempt for a reason. This film is not enjoyable - it combines pornography with gore in an attempt to satisfy horror fans. Sure it will satisfy film watchers who just want to see blood, but for those, like me, who like a good storyline supported by a cast who can act (not two failed porn-stars) and a film that doesn't change it's story from previous films and contradict itself in so many ways it is truly a pathetic attempt to cash in on a masterpiece of horror cinema. And in doing so, removes Candyman's credibility as one of the most shocking and best horror movies of all time.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's a disgrace. 3 Jun 2004
By Chris Hall TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I refuse to admit that this film exists! Clive Barker is such a fantastic writer/director/artist and to have someone come along and create a film based on his outstanding charactors only to produce such a shallow, weak plotted, garbage is surely a crime. I can't ever remember being so disappointed in a film as I was with this one...and I'm not just saying that. I recommend that you do what I do and just pretend it was never created in the first place.

1.0 out of 5 stars Candyman....please no more! 12 Feb 2009
Format:DVD
Anyone who respects the original and those who thought the sequel was ok even though there was no real reason for one shouldnt be giving this one more than it deserves. The garbage acting, the crappy story and cheap production values...need I go on. Tony Todd is great as Candyman and a great actor in anything he does, I have no idea why the hell he did this. Candyman stands out as a smart horror film (and short story) which is loved by all...so why make trashy sequels? The lead actress is pretty damn hot but watching her act is poor, she delivers her scream queen wannabe lines which just makes you quiver and not in a good way. Nick Corri who you will know as Rod Lane from A Nightmare on elm street is here supporting, actually he and Tony Todd are the only ones stopping you from inching toward the STOP button. Their acting is good and the rest is poop, nuff said.
