Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh

Movie

Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Scream Factory, an imprint of Shout! Factory, with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. Elements utilized for this transfer are in generally fine shape, though there are a few isolated moments of minus density and minor flecks that show up. The overall look here is on the soft side, something that keeps detail from popping in all but the most brightly lit scenes. For this reason, detail and fine detail are best in moments like the outdoor flashback late in the film showing Daniel's tribulations at the hands of the lynch mob. Colors look natural and are quite vivid at times, with the all important reds especially nicely saturated. There are passing issues with crush in a number of dark scenes (like Annie's entrance into the shrine behind the Sno-cone stand—don't ask). On the plus side, there are no issues with noise or compression artifacts despite the film's overall very dark demeanor, and there are likewise no signs of intrusive filtering
