User Score: 62/100

Synopsis:

The Candyman is back, trying to convince his descendent, an artist, to join him.

The third film of the Candyman series sort-of follows on from the events of part 2. Set several years later, and the Candyman (played once more by Tony Todd) is now on the loose in Los Angeles, terrorising the Mexican communities during their Day of the Dead festival.



Of course his real interest is in pursuing another one of his relatives, namely a young artist named Caroline McKeever (played by former Playboy centrefold Donna D’Errico, and it’s not diffucult to see why she was chosen for the part). Caroline is actually the daughter of Annie Tarrant, who you may remember from Candyman 2. Although the Candyman was defeated at the end of that film, it turns out that he is still able to keep popping up and bumping people off because people who beleive in his legend keep calling his name. She beleives that if she can disprove the myth of the Candyman she can ultimately defeat him, and so has organised an exhibition of her paintings devouted to the works of the Candyman’s former self Dannielle Robertille, who as we all know was a former slave, turned painter. Hoping the display will show people for what he truly was, and thereby quell all the urban legends about him.



Of course, as we can all guess, this plan is doomed to failure as the Candyman starts popping up and killing all Caroline’s friends and aquaintences, including the unfortunate proprieter of the art gallery where her works are displayed. Then the Candyman comes for Caroline, hoping to take her as his final sacrifice. But of course she isn’t too willing, and so more mass carnage ensues. With each murder implicating both her and her new love interest David de la Paz (played by Nightmare on Elm Street’s Nick Corri). Matters are not helped by a group of punk rockers who are worshippers of the Candyman legend, and are trying to summon him up, or the fact she is being stalked by a corrupt detective who is obsessed with her. 



This has turned out like the Nightmare On Elm Street series, just a lot quicker. The same thing is repeated in this movie and it is rather boring to watch. The Candyman always kills in the same fashion, groin to gull, and happens to frame our main character. Then the main character and friends must find a way to stop him. OOOO. This movie is even worse because the main character is nothing but tits and her character is shallow and self centered. If she cared about her "friends" she wouldnt refuse the Candyman. But nooo, the bitch is retarded and everybody dies. She even says she has nothing left, so why does she wanna live so bad? Horrible plot, horrible acting, decent gore and effects. If they ever make a 4th film, it better have some new creative ideas come with it.
