Glenn Jacobs in See No Evil (2006)

Mother Eye Plucker

When Officer Frank Williams and his partner attended a call of screams coming from an abandoned house his partner was killed by the psychopathic Jacob Goodnight (Glenn Jacobs) and Frank lost an arm. Four years later and Frank has found a new calling, working with inmates at the County Detention centre where he supervises those delinquents who have agreed to 3 days work in return for a month off of their sentence. The latest batch are taken to the abandoned Blackwell hotel which a historical society want renovated but none are aware that there is already a secret guest there, the psychopath with an axe, Jacob Goodnight and these delinquents along with Williams had better keep an eye out.

Well I guess an abandoned hotel in need of fixing up is different to an abandoned mental hospital in the middle of nowhere and at the same time having a bunch of teens under the guidance of a prison guard is also a different angle to take. But these two things are not that great that they make "See No Evil" any different to the typical movie about teens in an abandoned building where they are hunted down by a psycho.

The difference between "See No Evil" and other similar movies which went before it is gore and soft porn. From wet bodies in the shower and sex scenes in dirty rooms to victims getting their eyes pulled out or heads smashed to pieces it is full on. But then that is what this movie trades on; extreme thrills, extreme violence and that is it. Actually as this is a WWE movie it trades on Glenn Jacobs, aka Kane, and his huge, imposing figure as Jacob the psychopath which in many ways if the graphic violence is not your sort of thing is the best thing about the movie.

What this all boils down to is that "See No Evil" is an extremely graphic version of a typical teens in an abandoned building movie dealing with a psycho who is knocking them off. Other than its graphic nature and starring Glenn Jacobs it offers little which is new.
