It wasn't, but it has all the hallmarks-it falls into accepting, even embracing, the same stupid occult stereotypes that such flicks use to preach "the occult is evil, mmmkay?". They should make anyone else laugh with derision. Deeply depressing stuff, especially coming from a husband-and-wife team who learned their craft at the feet of such directors as Larry Fessenden (Wendigo), Jim Sheridan (In America), and Fenton Bailey (Party Monster); Joe handled various production manager roles on those and many other films on which Tess worked as a production assistant before the two got hitched and started doing their own directing. This is their second feature, and it is awful indeed.Plot: The Paranormal Inspectors, a successful paranormal-activity reality TV show aimed at debunking possible "hauntings", secures the rights to film overnight in a supposedly haunted asylum for its fiftieth episode. What the show's sleazy producer doesn't tell his crew is that he was only able to score this gig if he also allowed the crew of another show, one whose aim is diametrically opposed to that of the Paranormal Inspectors (they are not only believers in paranormal hauntings, but are also highly religious), to accompany them and film as well. It doesn't take long for our intrepid explorers to realize that there is, in fact, something desperately wrong with this place, and that the only way they're going to figure out what it is and stop themselves from getting slaughtered is to work together to figure out what's going on and how to stop it before etc.To be fair, it's not the worst "annoying Ghost Adventures guys get their much-deserved comeuppance" movie I've ever seen. (That would be Grave Encounters, elsewhere this ish...) And I guess if you want to consider the kind of weird religious hack/add-on at the end of the movie original, I can't argue with that, no matter how ineptly it comes off. But still, it would have to reach to achieve the enjoyment factor of House of Bones, and let's face it, if you can't measure up to a SyFy Channel Original Movie after they changed the name to SyFy... * 1/2

Haravikk K (ag) wrote: I found it strange that this film was so poorly rated compared to the original, as personally I'd say that both are roughly on par; that is, both are okay, but far from great.This film makes a far better attempt at Candyman's backstory, and doesn't portray *all* of the police involved as complete idiots, though it's not much of an improvement. The bulk of the film is however a typical bloody horror romp with cheap scares, bad writing, and characters you don't give a damn about, resulting in it being more a relief when they're cut down in droves and you don't have to see them again.Some story elements do however redeem it, and personally I feel they elevate it above the first film; the kid haunted by visions of the Candyman and the teacher struggling to work with a community overshadowed by a horrifying urban legend that turns out to have close ties to the horrors endured by her own family make for a more interesting and tighter plot, even if it still isn't great. Significant elements are carbon-copied from the first film, to the formula of the main character saying "Candyman" too many times and finding themselves the subject of the eponymous villain's twisted affections for the remainder of the film.Personally I'd recommend this instalment over the first for anyone new to the series, as the basic plot is essentially the same, but with less conflicting elements and some better handling of the urban legend.

Lane W (us) wrote: This film feels much longer than it actually is, and it's two and a half hours long. Shirley MacLaine is annoying and frustrating as Charity Hope Valentine, and very rarely even remotely sympathetic. Fosse's direction does not show the same level of skill as his later film work, but his sense of composition is unparalleled even here, and the choreography (with the exception of most of "Rhythm of Life") is spectacular. The adaptation cuts almost every number that isn't a huge dance number, which made me miss numbers like "Charity's Soliloquy" and "I'm the Bravest Individual," but this was obviously a film geared toward splashy dancing and the exploitation of Fosse's talent and reputation. The best part of the film, aside from said choreography, is John McMartin, reprising his stage role, and making Oscar Lindquist a thoroughly charming, lovable character, even in his final scene. MacLaine's Charity does not deserve McMartin's Oscar, and, therefore, the ending doesn't matter. McMartin is the saving grace in an overly long, boring, and insufferable film.
