They call him the Candyman, Daniel Robataille, a black slave who made the mistake of falling in love with a white woman. Caught by an enraged mob, his hand was cut off and his body drenched in honey to attract bees that eventually stung him to death. In the Hispanic quarter of Los Angeles, Caroline McKeever struggles to make a living as an artist, unaware that she is the Candyman's last living descendent. As the festival of the Day of the Dead approaches, Caroline begins to experience visions. Horrifying, bloody nightmares telling her to 'destroy the myth'. A hook-handed stranger stalks her dreams, begging her to aid his quest for revenge.

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.

SYNOPSIS

Several years after the events of CANDYMAN 2: FAREWELL TO FLESH, the infamous Candyman (Tony Todd) is back, haunting a descendent of his, Caroline McKeever (Donna D'Errico). Caroline, daughter of CANDYMAN 2's Annie Tarrant, owns a gallery and her current theme is of course Daniel Robitaille. During the exhibition she calls out Candyman 5 times to satisfy the crowd and thus summons the hook-handed killer, who wants to claim her soul and starts killing people associated with her making her the prime suspect.

THE MOVIE

It was bound to happen. Every successful series has its death by a horrible sequel and for Candyman it's DAY OF THE DEAD.
This direct-to-DVD/VHS sequel misses everything that made the previous entries so unique and great.
Gone is the brilliant score by Philip Glass, replaced by an unmemorable score by Adam Gorgoni.
Cheap scares intended to make the audience jump replace a compelling and gripping story, the opening scene makes this quite apparent within the first five minutes.
The acting is terrible - the only good actor, Tony Todd, didn't seem interested at all in being in this movie, and it shows. The female lead Donna D'Errico might be a looker but her acting is terrible and so is Jsu Garcia, whom she teams up with.
Director Turi Meyer, whose other directing credits include a direct to video horror film called SLEEPSTALKER and some BUFFY and ANGEL episodes, also co-wrote this mess. Neither is done well at all.

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.
