When the Candyman throws the detective through the window, the glass that was whole before is not when the detective starts to go through the window. It is pre-shattered like safety glass. The first image you see of the officer going through the window, after Ethan is shown cowering in the corner, his elbow has already impacted the window. (This can be seen when watching it frame by frame.) See more »

Candyman moves to New Orleans
14 October 2013 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

The Candyman legend moves on to New Orleans, and has a whole new set of victims. Annie Tarrant (Kelly Rowan) is a school teacher. Her father was killed by the Candyman. Her brother Ethan (William O'Leary) is wrongly accused of murders, the latest being a Candyman denial writer.

The change in setting concerns me, but New Orleans has some great potential for urban legends. It goes into the life of Daniel Robitaille a little bit more with maybe a possible way to kill him once and for all. But it's not as creepy as it needs to be. The movie lacks any tension or fear.

Kelly Rowan is playing a typical scared victim. At least she has the skills to back it up. But the atmosphere isn't up to the original. It's all a weaker version of itself. It certainly doesn't have as powerful of an ending as the original.
