Product Description

Product Description

In the 1890s, a young black man was lynched and tortured because of his affair with a white girl. He returned from the dead to wreak his vengeance in 'Candyman', and now looks set to do the same again, in true sequel fashion. In modern-day New Orleans, local schoolteacher Annie Tarrant (Kelly Rowan) is the last surviving descendant of the Candyman's lost love. Little does she know what fate has in store...

From Amazon.co.uk

A stylish sequel though inferior to its classic predecessor, Bill Condon's Candyman 2: Farewell to the Flesh deepens our knowledge of what made the murdered Daniel Robitaille turn into the monster that haunts dreams and mirrors. But some of it is still pretty routine: schoolteacher Annie takes a long time to connect her family's plantation-owning past and her own artistic talent with the legend, and is far too ready to say the Candyman's name five times in a mirror to debunk her pupils' fears.

The setting--New Orleans in Carnival time with a disc jockey whimsically reminding us that Carnival is the last farewell to pleasure before the rigours of Lent--and the atmospheric score by Philip Glass give the film some of its class. Tony Todd, who returns as the Candyman, gives the monstrous spectre with a hook for a hand a quiet dignity and sadness which impresses. His life was torn agonisingly from him and he is mad for vengeance, yet he has an artistic temperament and loved Annie's kinswoman Caroline. Condon captures an attractive elegiac tone in much of this, as well as moments of brutal horror.

On the DVD: Candyman 2 is presented in widescreen 1.78:1; there is an attractive crispness to the picture which does real justice to the film's impressive sense of place. The music score comes across well in Dolby Digital stereo. There is a theatrical trailer, but no other features. --Roz Kaveney

THE STORY

Continuing the story from CANDYMAN, CANDYMAN 2 is set in modern day New Orleans after the author of book (Michael Culkin) on the Candyman is brutally murdered... with a hook.
The story centers on Annie Tarrant (Kelly Rowan), sister of Ethan Tarrant (William O'Leary), the prime suspect of the murdered author, who was seen earlier spouting death threats at the man.
Annie soon discovers that her brother wasn't the murderer, but that the Candyman (Tony Todd) is back.

THE MOVIE

CANDYMAN (2): FAREWELL TO FLESH is a surprisingly good sequel! Unlike many sequels it actually enhances the story by going deeper into the Candyman's origin, the tragic love story of Daniel Robitaille, a slave who falls in love with his owner's daughter and is brutally maimed and lynched by a mob as "punishment". The movie and the Candyman myth benefit greatly from this background.
Yes, the gore was also increased, especially during that flashback sequence, but it never feels out of place and is justified by context.
The brilliant music once again composed by Philip Glass adds greatly to the climax.
The story is loosely based on a short story by Clive Barker (HELLRAISER) and the screenplay writers Rand Ravich and Mark Kruger did a great job and got the most out of the story they could.
Directed by Bill Condon who mostly had done TV movies up to then, he really shows some talent here in his well and effectively paced film.
Good performances by - as usual - Tony Todd, as well as lead actress Kelly Rowan and the supporting cast.

By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 20 Feb. 2003
Format: DVD
Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh takes up the story of the Candyman legend and runs with it, giving us a much greater understanding of the man who would become the hook-gutting avenger of wronged souls; it offers a short and respectable summary of the first movie and then proceeds not to redo what has happened before but to carve its own name indelibly in the flesh of cinematic horror. I think this movie stands as a testament to proper sequel-making in the horror movie genre.
I love the opening sequence of this film. The smarmy academic professor who is an expert on the Candyman but does not believe in him (the same man who needled Helen as she worked on her project in the original movie) is speaking about his new book in a New Orleans bookstore. Naturally, he proves his disbelief by theatrically calling out Candyman's name five times in front of his own reflection. Let's just say he ends up a convert to the Candyman religion. Then we meet Annie Tarrant (Kelly Rowan), a devoted schoolteacher in a poor neighborhood of town. Her brother is accused of killing the lecturing professor, but Annie does not believe his own statements of guilt. She believes something about her father's death is responsible for her brother's unexplainable behavior. That death, we learn, precipitated an enduring tragedy in the Tarrant family. Annie's mother is dying of cancer and seems to be holding something back from her questioning daughter. Annie herself, foolishly trying to prove to her frightened students that Candyman isn't real, calls him, and then things really get ugly. People die, many of them Tarrants, and the Candyman seems to engage in some sort of romantic courtship of Annie.

Pretty standard sequel, with the story being originated by Clive Barker. The urban myth of the Candyman is re-awakened when descendants from the tortured slaves bloodline attempt to find out the truth and ultimately destroy the legend forever. Some pretty nifty effects are all that are really here, as the weak succession of false shocks and the slow beginning only detract from the picture. The script too is weak, with its complexities of Candymans origins not solidly explained. It tries to achieve the epic and urban mythic qualities of the original but ends up as a formula horror pic, although Tony Todd has prescence as Candyman, and Kelly Rowan is a likeable protaganist.

A third picture seemed unlikely, as this picture helped Clive Barkers cinematic reputation, built up so solidly on HELLRAISER and the original CANDYMAN, slide into straight-to-video flop-out city. But what do you know, they made one anyway.

The first "Candyman" film, whilst not a classic, was very enjoyable and quite scary.
This, the first sequel, sadly obeys the rules of the diminishing return of the sequel.
It takes quite awhile to get going and has none of the original menace.
Tony Todd is still outstanding in the titular role but other than that is lacking a decent script and originality.
I was a tad disappointed.

This film is similar to Candyman (A great film) and is the second in the series. Same good acting and still a good story. Worth watching. The same bloody scenes (what do you expect with a man with a hook). Could watch more than once!
