Danielle Harris in See No Evil 2 (2014)

Cake & Cadavers

Despite it being her birthday Amy (Danielle Harris) offers to stay on at work at the morgue when news comes in of a series of killings coming in thanks to a man called Jacob Goodnight (Glenn Jacobs) with Jacob being one of the bodies coming in. Fortunately her friends had already decided to pay her a visit at the morgue and throw her the party there. Unfortunately for Amy and her friends the psycho Jacob isn't dead and now he is roaming a facility with corridors and medical equipment to attack them with.

By the looks of what I said about "See No Evil" it didnt really set my world on fire but appreciated it was an okay version of a typical teenage horror movie involving an abandoned building and the psychotic danger which lurks there. But "See No Evil" was not a strong enough movie to warrant a sequel and by doing so although I like the basic idea of having deranged killer Jacob Goodnight prowling around the corridors of a morgue where all manner of knives, hooks and chains lie for him to mame and murder those he comes across after coming around the end result is nothing special.

But beyond the nice choice of loc'ation for "See No Evil 2" there isn't much else to say as we really are just talking about young adults throwing a bit of a party and dealing with the one eyed psycho Jacob Goodnight. Yes it is graphic but so are so many of these movies now and sadly the graphic horror on show is kind of passe as are the obligatory sex scenes which seem to be played more for laughs than for anything else. Even attempts to try and give the character of Jacob a back story and reasoning for his actions is nothing other than filler.

What this all boils down to is that "See No Evil 2" might entertain those who are yet to become well versed in horror movies but for those who are this sequel ends up pretty generic and lacking in any fresh ideas to make it stand out despite actually being relatively nicely put together with some decent editing and camera work.
