The only reason that I am giving all this info on Kane is for the WWE fans that are intrested in this movie because of his staring role if they haven't seen it yet. I myself am not what you would call an avid fan, but I do enjoy some of the WWE members and a couple that have entered into acting. So now my disclaimer is out of the way lets get back to the movie.
The movie itself as I have mentioned is more or less just another slasher flick from lionsgate that had a higher budget than the typical slasher flick. The story is revenge based with the usual teen cast that is the prey for the large and demented Kane. The killers behavior comes from his mothers twisted religious upbringing and her distain for young women. The poor boy is caught with some girlie pics and he did what many boys do and got caught. "Oh so embarrassing" This has an odd effect on Kanes character and his relationships with women if you can call it that?
The set up is a couple of cops are called to a home and as they start to investigate they hear a woman scream and then they are attacked. One cop is killed and another is wounded (hint...hint) and the bad guy is shot, but never found (hint). Fast forward a few years and the the cop is now working at a detention facility for young teen/adult offenders who are given a chance to shorten their sentences in return for cleaning a old hotel thats being restored. Now you know all you need to know about the story.
The acting by this young cast was better than expected and they were able to a credibly pull off their given roles in this short on story/plot movie. The delapidated hotel location works well as the creepy backdrop for Kane's evil playground. The director did a decent job, but could have gotten more out of the cast, location and gore that would have made for a more memorable movie. It kind of seemed like the director was as burnt out on making horror flicks as I am on watching just another average cookie cutter slasher/horror flick.
The two big issues in this movie for me was they never described just what Kane's character is other than the obvious? When you watch the movie you should be able to catch my meaning when you notice whats going on in his head? I don't just mean his mental state! The other obviously glaring issue is its averageness.
Was this movie worth the time to watch? Yes and No. Was this a scary movie? No. Was it gory? Yes and they do a pretty realistic job of it. Is there sex and nudity? Yes, but the nude scenes only show the back half of a girl. Was there drug use? Yes Was there foul language? Yes, but not over the top.
I hope this will help you decide if you want to watch this average, but good acted and gory movie.

It's fun, in that silly Friday the 13th ripoff way. The sequel is even more fun, with Kane (spoilers, he dies in this movie) somehow getting resurrected in a morgue and engaging in a second round of mass murder with the young co-ed staff there, who was inexplicably throwing a party at the time.
