The 1999 horror thriller Candyman: Day of the Dead, the third installment in the original “Candyman” series, is available on  Blu-ray (plus digital) from Lionsgate in the “Vestron Video Collector’s Series.”

Based on the characters created by horror writer Clive Barker, this film stars Donna D’Errico (“Baywatch,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “9-1-1”), Robert O’Reilly (“Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”), and Tony Todd (Candyman, The Crow, “The Flash”). 
 
In the film, the Candyman is back. As the Day of the Dead celebration approaches the barrio of East Los Angeles, the tortured ghost is intent upon bringing his family together in a bloody reunion beyond the grave.
