A schoolteacher in New Orleans, Annie (Kelly Rowan), is haunted by the urban legend of Candyman in this sequel to the 1992 horror hit. Tony Todd reprises his role as the hook-handed Candyman, who murdered Annie’s father at some point in the past. Her brother goes after an author who wrote a book about the Candyman murders, and ends up being framed for the author’s murder.
There is a bit of back story surrounding the Candyman character, and ultimately, it hurt the mystery and menace of what was otherwise a pretty frightening character. The sad part was that it was kind of the best part of the movie. The plot and characters were so mundane and tedious, I was constantly fighting to stay awake.
Really, your best bet is to say “Candyman” five times in front of a mirror and hope he comes to stab you with his hook hand before you make the mistake of trying to watch this dogshit movie.
