A film by award-winning filmmaker Bill Condon (Gods And Monsters, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn) and based on legendary Clive Barker’s popular short story, Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh continues the tale of the phantom-like figure who wreaks a terrible fate upon those who chant his name five times while looking into a mirror… and come face to face with grisly death. Executive produced by Clive Barker (Nightbreed, Lord of Illusions), the cult horror hit CANDYMAN: FAREWELL TO THE FLESH stars Tony Todd (Final Destination) and Kelly Rowan (The O.C.) with Timothy Carhart (24, Witness) as Paul McKeever and Veronica Cartwright (The Town That Dreaded Sundown) as Octavia.

A victim of unspeakable evil while he lived, the “Candyman” (Tony Todd) has become evil incarnate in his afterlife. This time, he haunts the city of New Orleans, where a young schoolteacher named Annie Tarrant (Kelly Rowan) is struggling to solve the brutal murder of her father. The locals insist that he was slain by the Candyman, but Annie is not convinced… until she unwittingly summons the monster forth, learns the secret of his power, and discovers the link that connects her to him. But can she stop him before he kills again?
