Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh | 1995 | R | - 5.8.6

The sequel to "Candyman" has the man with a hook running rampant again.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A man and a woman are briefly seen on a balcony kissing, a man and a woman are seen kissing at a street corner: the man is in a G-string and the woman is totally nude (we can see the sides of her breasts) and there is the suggestion of sex.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - Sketches and paintings of Candyman's horrific death are seen throughout the film (his hand was cut off and then he was stung to death by bees). Two men fight in a bar. A man is killed by a hook to the abdomen and shown in a huge pool of blood. Several more people are hooked to death with huge amounts of blood. A woman dreams of another having her throat slit. A man is killed by being covered and stung by bees. A woman is threatened several times.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Superstition, interracial relationships.
MESSAGE - There is no good reason for revenge; murder is wrong even if you think you have a good reason for it.
CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
