That was much controversy about the movie poster that was used to advertise Candyman 2. During this time the OJ Simpson trial was still very public and ongoing. So, the picture of a black man stalking a white woman was seen as controversial and the original artwork was quickly omitted. See more »

They had to do it. They had to make a sequel to one of the greatest horror movies of the 90s. But it's always sad to see how much difference in quality there has to be. I have to say, as far as sequels of slasher movies go, this ain't that bad. It has good production values. But of course the great acting performances of the original are gone except for Tony Todd's, who is almost equally as good as he was in the original. But also gone are the great editing and photography, the gritty realistic feel of the original, the eerie and moody score of Philip Glass. Candyman just continues ripping people up with motives that are standard in slasher movies. The bees are involved more in the gory scenes, but are still underused.
Not half as good as the first movie. I haven't seen the third nor am i interested in doing so.
