Unlike the first movie, candy man 2 reveals more about how it came to be what it is.

A wealthy plantation owner hires him to paint a picture of his beautiful daughter. The daughter turns up pregnant and an angry mob chases Daniel until they catch him and cut off the hand he draws.

Her name may have come from the classic Hallowe’en. But that’s not all that seemed to give him away. her husband in candy man 2 his name is Pablo. As you may know, the character of Annie in Hallowe’en She has a boyfriend named Paul. Coincidence? I leave that for you to decide.
