"Farewell to the Flesh" is the obligatory sequel to the "successful" original film "Candyman" (not to be confused with Candide Man), the touching tale of the George Washington Carver of the candy world. When last we saw our hero, he was fighting corporate overlords and the O'Henry candy bar company to bring people revolutionary new candies, only to be captured and killed in one of the most memorable death scenes in movie history - strapped to conveyor belt, Candyman is covered with honey and nouggat and attacked by bees after getting his hand chopped off and replaced by a solid chocolate one. Through black magic and a dash of old fashioned lightning, our hero is brought to life by Clay Thibideaux, a New Orleans big shot looking to make trendy new candies for Mardi Gras. A comical "Who's On First?" like exchange is shared between the two until it's agreed Candyman will make Clay's candies after seeking revenge on his killers. There's some crazy rampaging, beer, beads, and breasts to satiate the kids, and finally the climactic battle between Candyman and Sue Ellen Mishky, head of O'Henry. The movie falls short in trying to top the first movie's amazing ending. Candyman ends up cornering Sue Ellen in a candy factory and uses acidic caramel to burn off her flesh, after which he takes her remaining organs and uses them to close his deal with Clay by making "Organic" candy. The skeleton is left behind begging the studio for a third film. Sammy Davis Jr.'s eye makes a special appearance.

Mr. Triple Threat, Clive Barker, is not a stranger to the HomeGame, having written the past HGs "Lord of Illusions" and "Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth," as well as appearing in "Sleepwalkers." Clive was born in England in the mid-1900s and always wanted to be involved in "making pictures." Encouraged by the voices in his head, Clive has gone on to be one of the lesser successful horror writers around, allowing him to provide much material for our fine HomeGame products.
Like his older brother, game show host Bob Barker, as well as most of Hollywood, Clive has adopted a pet charity - The Pediatric SAIDS Foundation. Recognized by the neon green polkadotted yellow and brown stripped ribbon, the group seeks to raise money for SAIDS (Simian Acquired Immune Dificiency Syndrome caused by SIV) research in hopes of finding a cure and saving the lives of hundreds of monkeys. Started by Michael Jackson in the late 1980s, the group now numbers in the teens.
When he's not busy with his writing, Clive devotes his time to his Bob's company, Bob Barker Company, Inc., in which he is a member of the board, and raising award winning show lobsters.
