Candyman 2: Farewell to the Flesh is the 1995 direct to video sequel to the popular first horror hit, from the imagination of macabre mind Clive Barker (Hellraiser, The Midnight Meat Train), and marks the feature film debut of future Oscar nominated director Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters, Kinsey, Dreamgirls). Annie Tarrant (Kelly Rowan) is a school teacher in New Orleans with a strange family. Her father was mysteriously murdered, and her brother (William O'Leary) believes that it was the Candyman. Annie fears for her brother when he is blamed for the murder of a college professor (Michael Culkin) and tries to set the record straight that there is no Candyman. Trying to prove a point, she says his name five times in the mirror. Annie then realizes that she has brought forth the Candyman, who is linked to her past and he is killing off her family and friends one-by-one.
