Get your hand grenade cocktail ready because we're heading to the glorious city of New Orleans to pick apart queer director Bill Condon's(!) 1995 slasher sequel Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh! Joining us for the discussion is renowned professor and national speaker Doctor Jon Paul Higgins!

As we walk along the parade route, we'll discuss the oft-used white savior trope (Seth Cohen's mom really wants to save these black teens!), family secrets involving mixed race genealogy and the always welcome presence of Tony Todd.

Plus, lengthy shots of a snow cones, atrocious mid-'90s CGI, magic mirrors and the film's odd decision to double down on black pain. Oh, and why is this New Orleans school open on Mardi Gras?
