Last month, Lionsgate and WWE Films announced that former WWE Champion Kane would be reprising his role of Jacob Goodnight from the 2006 film ‘See No Evil’ in a sequel. In a press release, they said that ‘See No Evil 2′ will be written by Nathan Brookes and Bobby Lee Darby for identical twin horror directors Jen and Sylvia Soska. Since then, Michael Eklund from other WWE productions ‘The Call’ and ‘The Marine 3: Homefront’ has been added to the cast, but now, two more actresses with some horror movie experience have joined in on the fun.
Danielle Harris from the original and remake ‘Halloween’ franchises and Katherine Isabelle from ‘Ginger Snaps’ and ‘Freddy Vs. Jason’ are the newest additions to the horror sequel that will see the psycho killer prey on some med students. Isabelle has worked with the Soskas before in their second film, ‘American Mary’. There’s no word on who exactly the pair of actresses will be playing, but I’d guess that they’d be among the med students getting picked off my the Big Red Machine’s cinematic persona.
“See No Evil 2’ revives the nightmare of the first film when Jacob Goodnight rises from the dead in the city morgue after his killing spree at the Blackwell Hotel. In this ominous, underground locker for the dead, a group of medical students fight to survive as the deranged psychopath once again starts to pick them apart one by one."
I thought that “See No Evil” was a decent film when I first saw it, I haven’t watched it again since the day I bought the DVD, but I know that it has gotten mixed reviews. However, just by adding Danielle Harris and Katherine Isabelle to the cast, they’ve already improved on the original.
Harris and Isabelle are joined by Greyston Holt, Chelan Simmons, Kaj Eriksen, Lee Majdoub and WWE wrestler Kane.
