A group of delinquents clean a hotel to fill their community service. Unfortunately for them they are not aware a maniac is also in the hotel. He locks them in and begins to hunt them down.
Seven feet tall. Four hundred pounds. A rusty steel plate screwed into his skull and razor-sharp fingernails that pluck out his victims’ eyes. Reclusive psychopath Jacob Goodnight is holed up in the long-abandoned and rotting Blackwell Hotel, alone with his nightmares until eight petty criminals show up for community service duty along with the cop who put a bullet in Jacob’s head four years ago.
When one of their own is kidnapped by the killer and her fate uncertain, the remaining lawbreakers must fight this indestructible force of nature with a violent score to settle.
One of the most popular wrestlers in World Wrestling Entertainment, Kane has made a name for himself as a bad-boy in an industry already teeming with out-sized personalities. At 7 feet tall and over 300 pounds, the volatile wrestler made his first appearance in 1997 and wasted no time in breaking all the rules: during one broadcast, he set RAW announcer Jim Ross on fire; and he stunned audiences when he “tombstoned” WWE CEO Linda McMahon, effectively picking her up and dropping her on her head. In light of this penchant for savagery, it comes as no surprise that Kane would take on the role of Jacob Goodnight, the unstoppable homicidal psychopath in Lionsgate’s grisly horror film, See No Evil, as his first foray onto the silver screen.
“There are a lot of similarities between myself and Jacob Goodnight,” says Kane. “We both had what some people would say are horrible childhoods. And we both grew up to be extremely large powerful men who can now do whatever we want to do. The only difference is that Jacob Goodnight does what he does on a movie screen and I do what I do in the ring.”
A hulking mass with razor-sharp, pointed fingernails and a steel plate embedded in his bare skull (a patch-up from a past gun-shot wound), Jacob lives in squalor in an abandoned hotel. But when eight juvenile delinquents arrive to help clean the hotel in exchange for reduced sentences, Jacob hunts them down one by one through a maze of decrepit hallways and rooms. Seeing sin in the eyes of his victims, he kills them and plucks out their eyes, which he collects in specimen jars.
