Such a frustrating disappointment


There are moments in this movie where the great movie it could've been peek out... They're fleeting, here, but they're worth savoring, and they happen often enough to make it worth your while.


It is neither dumb nor smart enough to be fun, and spends way too much time with its boring human characters.


The Candyman returns once again to torment and kill a distant relative for further undisclosed or vague reasons.This time it's Baywatch alumni Donna D'Errico taking the lead and boring the hell out of us for the films 90 minute duration.Granted this is a marginal step up from Farewell To The Flesh (1995) but still spotlights why the Candyman franchise died such a death.I've never understood how Tony Todds Candyman became so iconic, how do people place him alongside the likes of Freddy, Leatherface and Jason when he had just 3 rather mediocre films to his name.I'd like to see Candyman reborn, whether a 4th film or a reboot I don't mind but we a) Need Todd to remain the titular role and b) New writers.The Good: Wade Williams Donna D'Errico is far better here than I've seen her before The Bad: Plot is still pretty messy Things I Learnt From This Movie: Remaking the origin scene and making it different makes about as much sense as nipples on men Donna D'Errico is allergic to bra's


Taunted by numerous stories and rumors over the years, a woman's attempts to disprove the Candyman legend inadvertently releases him upon her friends and forces her to try to stop him from continuing on.This actually turned out to be quite a bit of fun and is much better than expected. One of the better elements here is the fact of this one managing to tie in the family legacy incredibly well, perhaps even better than any of the other entries throughout here. The relationship itself is one thing, but bringing in the visions of the mother as well as the connection through them makes this one so entertaining and manages to really connect this one quite well. That brings up the main storyline point here with this one brining the blood and gore through some rather inventive and enjoyable encounters here. The more chilling and enjoyable ones are based on the nightmares so this one's more thrilling moments come from the supernatural elements like the opening attack in the bathroom, the confrontation with the deformed mother coming from the bloody tub despite being in the public bathroom and the finale in his hive-home for the final struggle causes this one a lot of fun as this all comes off as exciting, extended action scenes build around pretty big scares. Other scares, as in the patrol car ambush or the gallery attack show-off the ability of this one to use the supernatural antics in the real works do it makes for a series of pretty intriguing and chilling scenes that also bring about some nice fore as well. It does have a few flaws, the main one being the rather overdone manner where the killer's targets toward the main victim here spends the whole film tormenting them instead of actually doing something about it. Despite the repeated claims of wanting her as one of the victims, he never really makes any effort to go after her and instead utilizes the psychological torment of going after her friend and family to get the job done which really makes no sense since he clearly has plenty of time to go after her instead. Otherwise, this one comes off just fine as it is.Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Nudity, and a brief, mild sex scene.


The first Candyman movie was a classy slice of pure horror based on an original story by celebrated author of the macabre Clive Barker; Day of the Dead, the third film in the series, is pure trash from the writer of Leprechaun 2 and Sleepstalker—but that's not to say I didn't enjoy it…Curvaceous, platinum blonde Baywatch babe Donna D'Errico is the star, and she spends the entire film in outfits specifically chosen to best show off her physical attributes (opening with a scene in which she is wearing only panties and a tight vest). D'Errico's amazing bod isn't the only good thing about the film, though: several other women also get their clothes off, including the tasty daughter of a confederate colonel who gets it on with Tony Todd, and a slutty model who covers her boobs in honey and gets stung to death by bees. In addition to the gratuitous female nudity, there's also a fair amount of gore, a gang of hilariously naff punk Candyman cultists, D'Errico in a ball gag tied to a chair, and Tony Todd hamming it up for all he's worth. It might not be art, but it sure ain't boring.


Candyman 3 Not big fan of the Candyman series, I gave first and sequel 5 out of 10 for both movies.This movie is very annoying, it dose not connect with any of the other movies, expect this time Candyman is going after his great Granddaughter.as she dose the deed by saying his name 5 times, he then start to killing people, soon she makes people believe in the Candyman. At first she not believe it at all but soon start believe and he accused from killing, just like first story. I did like how they ended the story. not killing the Candyman but killing the myth The deaths were same as the last two movie, not gory but a little bloody at time, The acting was really poor and some of the effect, echoing effect really annoyed me.
