In the latest horror-film-of-the-week exercise in big-screen sadism, a group of juvenile delinquents, eager to complete their community service requirements, are working together to renovate an old, abandoned hotel. It's all fun and games, of course, until the kids find themselves being chased through the creepy old hallways by a deranged, psychotic killer, played here by pro-wrestler Kane.
Such is the basic premise of See No Evil, a thriller that, not surprisingly, was seen by very few Christian critics. David DiCerto (Catholic News service) explains why: "In See No Evil … Kane plays a hulking homicidal maniac with a penchant for removing his victims' eyes, a course of action viewers may consider inflicting upon themselves shortly into this sick exercise of screen sadism."
Mainstream critics see no reason to praise the film either.
