See No Evil 2 Review
Synopsis:An undertaker's birthday party is interrupted when Jacob Goodnight rises from the dead and proceeds to terrorize her and her friends.
See No Evil 2 (2014) is an American slasher horror movie that is 90 minutes long and was filmed in Riverview, Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada. It is a sequel to the See No Evil (2006) and was released in 2014 to DVD and Blu-ray whereas See No Evil (2006) had a theatrical release. Director sisters Jen Soska and Sylvia Soska did a poor job executing this movie as they are known for not having superb directing skills. Some movies they have directed are American Mary (2012), The ABCs of Death 2 (2014), Dead Hooker in a Trunk (2009) and Tarantino’s Basterds (2009). The movie contains adult sexual content, violence, blood, bad language, gory, brutal scenes and a few wincing moments.
Amy (Danielle Harris - The Wild Thornberrys (1998), The Last Boy Scout (1991), Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988)) is working on her birthday with co-worker Seth (Kaj-Erik Eriksen) and their boss Holden. Amy was to meet up her friends at a bar to celebrate her birthday after finishing working the graveyard shift at a the morgue. Her boss, Holden (Michael Eklund - The Call (2013), Watchmen (2009), 88 Minutes (2007), The Divide (2011)) informs her that a lot of bodies are being delivered. Jacob Goodnight (Glenn “Kane” Jacobs - WWE Smackdown! (1999), See No Evil (2006), E.C.W. (2006)) is the mass murderer who killed numerous people at the Blackwell Hotel and himself. Amy has a good heart and decides to cancel her birthday plans and stay back at work to help with the delivery.
After a few events, Amy was surprised that she was given a surprise party at work. Her brother Will (Greyston Holt) and her friends Tamara (Katharine Isabelle), Kayla (Chelan Simmons) and Carter (Lee Majdoub) were there. Her brother Will (Greyston Holt - Bitten (2014), Fakers (2010), Slap Shot 3: The Junior League (2008), Hannah’s Law (2012)) created problems that made Seth and Amy to walk away separately from the party. Amy’s friend Tamara (Katharine Isabelle - Ginger Snaps (2000), American Mary (2012), Insomnia (2002), Freddy vs. Jason (2003)) leaves the party to look at Jacob’s corpse with Carter because she enjoys death and serial killers. Jacob suddenly awakened from his death and killed Carter as Carter and his girlfriend Tamara were being intimate. Tamara runs away as Jacob goes on his rampage through the morgue cutting off all utilities. So, who will survive Jacob’s wrath? Watch the movie and see if you are a tiny bit wondering.
The movie was good and kept me from not straying away although it was very predictable. I like the intense rush feeling it gave me and, of course, the action scenes. The set was not anything much to talk about as was the effects. The characters appeared to be as stupid as they can be - basically giving themselves up to Jacob. I gave this movie a five because it is not something I will watch again, but it is a nice watch for when you have nothing better to watch. Yes, this movie was a cliche but is so many other movies I have seen recently. I like that the movie tried to differentiate itself a little from others of its kind.
