Editorial Reviews

Seven feet tall. Four hundred pounds. A rusty steel plate screwed into his skull and razor-sharp fingernails that pluck out his victims' eyes. Reclusive psychopath Jacob Goodnight is holed up in the long-abandoned and rotting Blackwell Hotel, alone with his nightmares until eight petty criminals show up for community service duty along with the cop who put a bullet in Jacob's head four years ago. When one of their own is kidnapped by the killer and her fate uncertain, the remaining lawbreakers must fight this indestructible force of nature who has a violent score to settle.

When my co-worker showed me this film I was damn sure this would be garbage, which I don't mind since I can find enjoyment in most films.

Just imagine my surprise when I was treated to a fairly decent film. The gore effects and violence in the film are well done featuring some cringing moments. Kane is perfectly cast as the featured pyscho, Jacob Goodnight. He was not forced with a burden of needless dialogue, his presence carries his character through the film. Some of the other characters are not so well developed, though an unexpected character lasted the film when he/she was set up as a sure fire cannon fodder. I expected he/she to be the first kill based on their representation in film, but they become a hero in the film.

The film was certainly alot better than I expected, and definately better than some reviewers here are making it out to be. If you enjoy entertaining horror films, this will fill your need. Buy or rent, its up to you, I will likely buy it eventually.

The WWE's Kane makes his movie debut as something he's relatively comfortable playing: a monster of a man intent on pulverizing his victims. Had writer Dan Madigan left out the backstory and just let gore fans feast on the actions of Jacob Goodnight (Kane), this film would have been a decent, above-average gore-fest. However, there always has to be a reason for a killer molded in the form of Goodnight to exact his wicked fury on his victims. In this case, Goodnight has been convinced by his mother that he's the "hand of God" and has to rid the world of the wicked, or at least pluck out their eyes. We learn of this in flashbacks, full of jittery camera work, terror-inducing angles, and a little bit of gore. These vignettes actually weigh the action of this flick down. Also, the unlikeable-yet-well-groomed juvenile delinquents that Goodnight feasts on are less than stellar actors and actresses. That's somewhat expected in a flick like this, but I kept getting the feeling that these kids were better suited for a SciFi Channel horror flick than a well-budgeted gore yarn such as "See No Evil."

The juvi-hall kids end up in the abandoned Blackwell Hotel, supposedly there to clean up the place in order to get a month knocked off of their respective sentences. When they get there, however, there's an angry, confused, seven foot tall, four hundred pound monster waiting for them. They spend the rest of the flick running from him, outwitting him, hiding from him, and, in most cases, ending up on the business end of a large hook or axe.

Many of the kills in this flick were executed rather well. There are a couple of original kills (my favorite involving an animal rights girl) and a few tried and true ones as well.

Honestly going into this film I expected the worst, but I have to say See No Evil really wasn't a bad movie. Is this a classic in the genre?

No not at all. It's not Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre or John Carpenter's Halloween and in time I'm sure See No Evil will probably be forgotten about.

See No Evil may not inspire a generation of filmmakers, but for what it's worth it was enjoyable. There are flaws with the movie. The biggest problem being the lack of likable characters, outside of maybe Christina Vidal and Samantha Noble's characters the rest weren't very likable or interesting for that matter. And even they weren't developed at all.

Sure a lot of horror movies like See No Evil don't have a lot of character development, but it doesn't seem like the makers even tired. The characters are as thin as they paper they were written on.

Dave Madigan who writes for the WWE was the writer for See No Evil and while I don't think his script was terrible it wasn't very good.

There were some decent ideas, but they just weren't fleshed out.

Gregory Dark really doesn't try anything to make his movie standout. The tone of the movie could have been darker. But Dark went from porn to directing videos for Britney Spears, not sure if he is the right choice for something really dark.

See No Evil would have been better off if it went down the TCM or Devil's Rejects route and aimed to disturb.

It did have that vibe just a bit, but not enough. While Gregory Dark didn't do a bad job he does it by the books. Some of scenes work well at the end of the day it's nothing special.

One of the major problems was the editing; you know what is described as "MTV Style Editing?" See No Evil has some of that.

Hell, it's not even The Fog (remake), which I considered one of the worst movies I've seen in a long time. Everyone is talking about the gore in this film, but I must of blinked b/c I didn't see it. The "twist" I kept on reading about is apparent once they enter the hotel. Kurt Angle said he was hiding behind Viscera during a few scenes b/c it was so scary. Kurt must be a little b*tch b/c there is absolutely nothing scary about it. Once again, a horror movie I have high hopes for comes crashing down.

Some spoilers*************

So many complaints, so little time. Here's one though: How come the people you actually liked were killed off so early? The hippy chick died too gruesome of a death (the only remotely disturbing scene in the movie), it should've been reserved for someone else. The one they called Richie Rich, I think he should've lived. But for someone reason, they let the pimp live!!!!

End of spoilers *************

The one who played Kane's mother was a pretty bad actress.

I wish we could've seen more of the backstory instead of those stupid cliqued images.

Kane did an ok job, but he had maybe 1 line of dialog. To sum up this movie, it's one where you'll see it, then forget about it, then chuckle when you see it on amazon for 1.50 brand new..

I really don't understand all the positive reviews. I love wrestling and horror movies, but this one failed on all levels.
