See No Evil (2006)

Kane in See No Evil

In the Spring of 2006, the first WWE Films production was released, this one starring the nearly 7-foot tall Kane.

In See No Evil, a group of teenage delinquents are forced to renovate a dilapidated hotel in order to have their juvenile detention centre sentence decreased. The place is full of mold, roaches, mice and, worst of all, a gigantic man wielding a chain with a hook at the end of it. Jacob Goodnight (Kane) is not just looking to murder them, he also wants to remove their eyes. The film was originally going to be titled Eye Scream Man, but unfortunately that idea was scrapped. As far as I can tell, the fact that they did not go with that title is the film’s only flaw.

With all due respect to great horror protagonists of the past – Dracula, Freddy Krueger, Jason Vorhees, Chucky – there has never been an intimidating presence quite like Jacob Goodnight. Without uttering a single word, Kane delivers the performance of a lifetime. So good, in fact, that six years later he still hasn’t had a follow up role. I guess he’s quitting while he’s on top.
