NOTES:
Clive Barker, horror/fantasy writer and creator of Candyman says of the sequel "The whole point of Candyman II is to enrich the mythology of the first film. I think it's going to end up more baroque than the first one, as much a consequence of locations than anything else."

Set in New Orleans at Mardi Gras Candyman II: Farewell to the Flesh is more of a standard slasher horror flick than Bernard Rose's original, Candyman. Directed by Bill Condon who has made a career in horror and sci-fi films and again starring Tony Todd as a very effective Candyman, this film offers a lot more blood and gore and possibly more thrills than its predecessor.

Philip Glass's chilling score is highly effective as the cues from the first film were reused and edited along with some new compositions and themes that Mr. Glass contributed to the sequel.
