Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh 88 films bluray

Tony Todd's Candyman was such an instantly iconic horror villain that a sequel was inevitable. Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh saw Todd return to the role of the urban legend made flesh with acclaimed director Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters; Mr. Holmes) at the helm.

Special features include interviews with Todd and actress Veronica Cartwright; trailer; and on the first print run only, a limited edition slipcase and booklet featuring writing by film journalists Dave Wain and Matty Budrewicz.

A true horror icon returns in this buzzin' UK Blu-ray edition of Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh. The sequel to Clive Barker's original 1993 shocker, this 1995 follow-up brings legendary hook-handed bogeyman Tony Todd back once again to spill the blood of anyone who dares speak his name. A mix of nightmarish skin-slicer and seductive-voiced stalker, our villainous antagonist this time is summoned to the carnival that is New Orleans, where clues to his past are set to be unearthed...

Also starring Kelly Rowan (Assassins), Bill Nunn (Spider-man) and Veronica Cartwright (Alien) and directed by the Oscar winning Bill Condon (Chicago), Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh is one of the highest achievements in nineties horror sequel-dom! Say it with us now, Candyman, Candyman, Candyman, Candyman...

Hopes weren't high for the belated sequel to Brian de Palma's Stephen King adaptation, but director Katt Shea's followup took horror fans by surprise with a sequel that benefitted from a female perspective without skimping on the destruction. Emily Bergl played a put upon high schooler who discovers she has a link to Carrie White.

Special features include a director's commentary from Shea; alternate ending; deleted scenes; original trailer; and on the first print run, a limited edition slipcase and booklet with writing by Wain and Budrewicz.

Brian DePalma’s Carrie (1976) set a new standard for the horror genre, and twenty- two years later The Rage: Carrie 2 proved to be a remarkably riotous and highly-rated follow-up to the classic original. Directed by an old horror-hand in Katt Shea (Poison Ivy), and starring Emily Bergl (television's Southland) as a bullied schoolgirl who possesses an unexplored link to the telekinetic terror of Carrie White - the thrills come thick and fast in this fan-favourite follow-up.

Paying respectful homage to the abjection and atmospherics of its ground-breaking femme-on-fire predecessor, The Rage: Carrie 2 arrived to remind a whole new generation that it’s best not to bully the school outcast – you never know the terrifying power she might possess. Presented here in stunning HD, this sequel offers the very best in 90s Hollywood horror.


88 Films present Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh and The Rage: Carrie 2 on Special Edition UK Blu-ray, 25th March 2019.
