Good for it’s genre
As far as mad stalker/Friday the 13th/Halloween type movies go I think it was effective. Kane makes a good “monster”. The cast of unknowns seems to try reasonable hard. There were some gross-out gory parts, some effect atmosphere, some unexpected ways of getting killed, and for me anyway a surprise in some of the twists. It’s a B-movie but in that context it works for me. The theater was full and the crowd seemed to get into it. If you want to see a “maniac versus a group of teen agers” movie this is a good one to see.
The set up for the villain is effective and they actually did a good job in explaining how he got as messed up as he did. Actually by the end of the movie you get enough flash backs that you think he was twisted into shape and not just born evil ala Freddy or Jason.
See No Evil
Pro wrestler Kane stars as Jacob Goodnight, a humongous psychopath, who was the victim of a nasty religious fanatical mother during childhood(..we see in his recollecting memories, as a child being locked in an animal cage as a result of looking at dirty mags), venting his anger on a group of correctional kids from male and female facilities, hoping to remove a year from their various prison sentences by cleaning up a dilapidated old hotel, reeking of rats, roaches, rust, and garbage. Goodnight knows all the rumoured secret passages throughout the hotel and spies on the kids and their guardians, a cop who shot the psycho in the head four years previous after losing his arm by an ax chop, and the female corrections officer, contemplating a marriage proposal. Over an extended night of horror the characters will meet their gruesome fates one by one as Goodnight removes their eyes from the sockets, placing them in jars of water. One female, though, Kira(Samantha Noble)is spared from being killed because she has a large tattoo of a cross marking down her back. In his previous murderous rampage, a young woman was also spared because she had a cross tattoo..although her eyes were removed. In order for any of the kids to survive, they must work together to stop Goodnight who wields a mean axe and often whips a chained hook which catches his prey from quite a length. The hotel has penthouse floors gutted by fire from long ago which killed the owner of the hotel and his wife and sent the place into ruin. Hobos made the hotel their home, before meeting Goodnight sealing their fates..this is why you’ll see numerous dead homeless folks lying all over the place. There’s also a hidden room rumoured to carry a safe holding the former hotel owners private holdings in a safe.
Standard slasher fare has plenty of ultra-violence to feed the gorehounds. One rich bitch, put in prison for shoplifting, meets her end as Goodnight finds a unique way of shutting her up through a ringing cell phone. Goodnight often likes to lift his victims in the air, clutching their throats with his monstrous grip, slamming them against walls. One victim is hoisted in the air with her head crushing the ceiling of an elevator leaving part of her scalp. Another receives the chained hook thrusted into his throat. Another victim receives the shock of a taser in his throat and safe which crushes his ribs. In a sense of grim irony, one girl, sent to prison for an act to save animals, meets her end by the ones she cares deeply for.
I think Kane is an ideal psycho and meets the requirements of hulking monster who really looks the part as he stalks his prey. And, the setting really works as the characters run for their lives trying to outsmart their adversary any way they can. But, director Gregory Dark is like a kid with a brand new toy as his camera speeds up while often shaking obnoxiously, with the lens either shuttering or at different angles. There are quick cuts which break the action that I found rather tiresome, to be honest. I felt Dark really wanted to bring a specific style to this film so that he could make up for it’s rather derivative premise. But, Dark’s film is a run-of-the-mill slasher and no matter what he tries to do with his camera(..and through the editing process), he can not mask what SEE NO EVIL is. I’m sure this will satisfy those blood-thirsty slasher fans who merely want death and carnage. Speaking for myself, I’ll probably forget it by tomorrow. Oh, and the characters couldn’t die fast enough, and what is funny about this film is that the most loathsome character, a real cruel prick named Michael(Luke Pegler), becomes the savior for the chosen “final girls” of the screenplay. Go figure. Goodnight’s fate is pretty neat, though..and what a dog does as it urinates, breaking the closing credits for a moment, is grotesquely amusing.
