Movie Info

A ragtag group of juvenile delinquents assigned the task of cleaning up an abandoned hotel find out just how deadly community service can be when they are stalked by a monstrous, four-hundred-pound maniac with a grudge in director Gregory Dark's wrestling-infused survival horror flick. It was a mere four years ago that seven-foot menace Jacob Goodnight (WWE superstar Kane) was shot in the head and left for dead by a local police officer. But Jacob wasn't going down that easy.

Although much blood is spilled and splattered, precious little suspense is generated during See No Evil.

If there were an award for mangiest set decoration, See No Evil -- a routine slasher film set in a condemned hotel -- might cop it.

The gilt-and-grime setting is eerily atmospheric, and screenwriter Dan Madigan has a nicely sick sense of humor.

See No Evil is proficient junk, which makes it something of an improvement over recent horrors like An American Haunting.

The dull and tedious splatter-fest See No Evil is, sadly, not even half as intriguing as its skuzzy pedigree.

Just your basic slasher fare where a horde of horny teens riddled with contemptuous attitude wind up in the lair of an ax-happy psycho.

It seems Dark and writer Dan Madigan have no better grasp of insect reproduction than they do of filmmaking.

O roteiro não traz uma única idéia original, sendo previsível do início ao fim (com exceção, talvez no que diz respeito ao destino de alguns personagens). Ainda assim, o filme funciona graças à direção firme do ex-realizador pornô (!) Gregory Dark.

This rote exercise in slasher-film tedium holds zero surprises.

A predictably gruesome compendium of splatter-movie clichés, See No Evil is a reprehensible exercise in lowest-common-denominator filmmaking that disgusts and bores in equal measure.

June 3, 2006

It's unoriginal with no rhyme or reason, and never takes advantage of its golden opportunity to provide us with an entertaining story.

If it carries the faint odour of freshly carved teenage flesh, plus a soupcan of plucked eyeball, then you've sniffed out See No Evil.

You would think that a pornography director would be a decent fit for a slasher movie...Yet Gregory Dark seems unable to make the transition.

It's deliberate exploitation, but not clever enough to be much fun.

Feels like an eternity, making one wish the killer would hurry up so that the end credits can roll and we could all be done with this bloody mess.

Audience Reviews for See No Evil

Looking at the trailer, See No Evil looked like a film that could really be an awesome, exciting and well crafted Slasher film. Unfortunately despite great kill sequences, the film fails in really having anything else going for it, and the result is a mediocre to decent affair that just doesn't live up to what it could have been. The film does boast some great effects, but it's not enough to redeem the sheer lack of substance in the film's plot. Another thing that sinks the film is the bland, wooden performances by its cast of amateur actors. This is just a forgettable film, one that if the script would have been rewritten and the cast better chosen would surely be a good Slasher yarn. See No Evil doesn't stand out and it's a film that just doesn't have what it takes to really be a fun, entertaining thrill ride that will appeal to horror fans. If you're looking for a great film here, you won't find it. In the last few years there has be a resurgence in the Slasher genre and there has been quite a few good films to be made, but See No Evil isn't one of them, the film is not sure what it tries to accomplish, and there are a few effective ideas here, but as a whole the film just falls apart due to lacking elements. If you really want a great recent Slasher outing, I would recommend the Hatchet Trilogy and the Laid to Rest films, though low budget picture they retained the old school vibe of the genre, and added a modern twist to it that made them the most exciting, thrilling and awesome Slasher films since the 80's. Although I can appreciate the kill sequences in See No Evil, as they are well done and gory the way it's supposed to be, this one just doesn't have anything to make this a worthy recommendations. Once you've seen it, you'll likely forget about it, though not the worst recent Slasher, it sure isn't the best either.

This could actually be a contender for the worst Slasher film ever made. It ticks all the cliche boxes and adds a Wrestler into the mix.
