Watched a good chunk of this dreck the other night.
45 minutes went by and NOTHING happened.
There were two killings at this point - one was a dream sequence. The Candyman is just a guy who looks like OJ Simpson with a hook-hand.
He can be summoned by reciting his name in the mirror five times. Who is dumb enough to do this? That's like get Mr. Myxlplyx to say his name backwards (again!) so he can be vanquished (again!).
There are sequences that are one phony scare after another. Woman is alone in room, a hand grabs her shoulder, (cue violin screech) *ZWING!* - oh, it's just her husband! And then *ZWING!* - whoops! Just a cat! And then *ZWING!* - nope, just the neighbour popping in!
Somebody kill the sound effects editor please!
I never saw the first Candyman, which apparently has a bit of a cult following, but this character is just lame and not scary.
Somebody get this man a white Ford Bronco!
Don't remember much about the 2nd one other than it was boring. It tried to emulate the tension of the first one which WAS quite good (and starred hotness actress Virginia Madsen - RAWWWR!)
Rent the first one, it is QUITE good (from what I recall...) more of a psychological horror than an outright slasher...
yeah, looks like
