The Candyman moves on to New Orleans and starts his horrific murders once more. This time, his intended victim is a school teacher. Her father was killed by the Candyman, and brother wrongly accused of the murdersWritten by
Bernard Rose originally conceived a sequel to his 1992 hit Candyman (1992) as not featuring the eponymous character at all but instead continuing to explore the nature of urban horror myths. This was quickly scotched when the producers figured that audiences would show up because they wanted to see Candyman eviscerate his victims. See more »
In the flooding scene in the slave quarters the Candyman's hook falls off into the water during one of the shots. In the next shot of the Candyman swimming, the hook has reappeared. See more »

Candyman moves to New Orleans
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.
