Critic Reviews for Candyman: Day of the Dead

All Critics (14)

It's apparent that the story doesn't drive this sequel; it's so repetitive in ideas and imagery that, like the second picture, it's as much a remake as it is a follow-up.

...a bottom-of-the-barrel followup that makes the mediocre original film look like a masterpiece by comparison.

September 25, 2021 | Rating: .5/4 | Full Review…

I don't know if there's enough here to make for an experience that's so bad that it's good, but at least it's so crass that it's watchable.

August 31, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

This is where sequels go to die.

August 27, 2021 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Director Turi Meyer attempts to disguise the film's numerous shortcomings by overdoing the gore to a laughable degree, but it still remains yawningly predictable and unrelentingly stupid.

February 26, 2020 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

While the original is an exploration of folklore and urban legends and the second continues those themes, the third gets lost in its attempt to translate these ideas elsewhere.

Audience Reviews for Candyman: Day of the Dead

Third entry in the Candyman franchise is wasted opportunity. As far as I'm concerned, this is the worst in the series. I think it's a shame because the second film in the Candyman trilogy was good, but this one is mediocre. The film has a bad plot, it doesn't do anything great with its ideas and the filmmakers scrap the bottom of the barrel of ideas with this one. The cast are terrible, and the actors starring opposite Tony Todd are awful, and even Tony Todd himself is wasted on a poor third entry. Candyman 3 could have been a good film, but the filmmakers are clear out of ideas, and thus the film is pretty sloppy, and really isn't that great. The second film for example, went deeper into Candyman's back story, which is why I think it's a strong sequel to the first. But with this third entry, the filmmakers don't try to do anything creative with its material, and feels tired and uninspired. The film plays out simply as a gorefest and it mostly relies on its gore factor. There is nothing scary, unlike the first two films in this film, and the film for the most part is boring. I think the idea was good, but the execution was bad. Add to that an awful cast, and you have a recipe for disaster. Candyman 3 could have been a great film, but it never tries to do anything new or inventive. The idea might have been good, but in the end, the execution is pretty poor, thus you have the worst film in the trilogy. This is an unscary third entry that simply doesn't deliver.

Not the biggest lover of the Candyman franchise, thankfully the series ended with this one because as a horror fan I'm compelled to watch these films. The story was silly and predictable, it has some bloody moments though and Tony Todd does have good presence on screen and completely owns the character. I've seen worse but this is still average.
