On Bluray and DVD this week from directors Jen Soska & Sylvia Soska along with WWE Studios and Lionsgate is the thriller SEE NO EVIL 2.
Jacob Goodnight (Glenn ‘Kane’ Jacobs) has been killed and now on his way to the morgue. Waiting is Seth (Kaj-Erik Eriksen) who works at the morgue and happens to be in love with Amy (Danielle Harris) who stays to help along with buddy Holden (Michael Eklund).
It is Amy’s birthday and friends decide to celebrate in a unique way. On her way out of the morgue Amy stops when she hears something strange. Into a dark room she goes and her friends scare her good led by brother Will (Greyston Holt).
Tamara (Katharine Isabelle), Kayla (Chelan Simmons) and Carter (Lee Majdoub) decide it’s time to party as the drinks start flowing. Tamara and Carter take off on their own for some private time when they discover Goodnight’s body.
After a bit of teasing, the two get down to business which means they aren’t paying attention to the slab. That is their first mistake! One by one they are being hunted in a place with locked doors and no power.
Making it out alive isn’t what Goodnight has in mind!
FINAL WORD: Jacobs as Goodnight gets a chance to have a few lines but mainly in response to his recently off’d Ma! Jacobs has the height and stature to pull this off and he does so quiet well. Even kicking in doors looked believable – and a tad frightening. Missing an eye adds to the creep factor but I suspect I’d be scared of him even with two good working eyes.
Harris as Amy is the sweet young lady who knows a young man has a crush on her. She sure is bold enough to stand in front of a window to scream at a big bad guy carrying a very large and sharp saw! Eriksen is just endearing as Seth. Wanting to somehow get Amy’s attention, the cake would certainly do it for most girls I think. Hey Seth, next time know you’re keys!
Holt as Will is a brother who doesn’t mind macking on his sister’s friends and, at the same time, tell Seth he isn’t good enough for his sister. Hey Holt, next time stay down!
Isabelle as Tamara is the life of the party with no fear towards death killers, at least for a brief period of time. Majdoub as Carter knows he needs to keep his girlfriend under a bit of control but doesn’t see it through – next time Carter!
Simmons as Kayla is the screaming heavy breather of the bunch. Personally I’d have totally lost my cool with her. She’s that one who gives away hiding places with that squealing stuff. I felt bad for Eklund as Holden, I mean really? Not to spoil but – really?
WWE Studios produces feature films with diverse features, DVD and digital platforms. Producing such films as THE CALL with WWE Superstar David Otunga and OCULUS with WWE Superstar Wade Barrett, SEE NO EVIL 2 is another film to add to an horror collection.
Lionsgate is an amazing motion picture and home entertainment company. In theatres they have brought such films as THE HUNGER GAMES, WARM BODIES and SINISTER to fans. They have over 15,000 titles available for home entertainment with original and daring entertainment.
TUBS OF POPCORN: I give SEE NO EVIL 2 three tubs of popcorn out of five. This is exactly what you’d expect in a horror film. Young adults more concerned with partying than paying attention. I think it’s an older folk thing to notice a body just up and leave a slab.
There is enough screaming, running and large sharp items to keep fans of the horror genre pretty happy. My only old lady thing is that running seems to be a hard thing to do in this film. Spending a lot of time standing face to face with a guy who likes slicing I had to wonder how the characters made it as far into the film as they did! I will admit to jumping once or twice which is what I live for in a good scary horror flick.
The DVD includes “Twisted Twins (Soska Sisters)” Featurette, “Autopsy: Dissecting the Kills” Featurette and Kane’s Goodnight: An Icon Reborn Featurette.
In the end – he is back with a vengeance!
