It was mentioned in some interviews that Kane's co-stars were a little uneasy around the 6 foot 7 tall man. Fangoria magazine mentions the director having to ask Kane to remain seated during cast introductions, since one of the women, who only came up to his sternum, wouldn't come near him. See more »

German DVD release by Kinowelt was cut by 11 seconds (cell phone scene) to secure a light SPIO: JK approval (meaning they were allowed to advertise the film, a normal approval would result in prohibition of advertising). Additionally, a FSK-18 version was created for retail chains, which was cut by 3 minutes. See more »
I remember first seeing the trailer for "See No Evil" in theatres and laughing heartlily when the WWE films logo appeared at the beginning. By the end, my laughter had increased. Yet somehow, I found myself watching it several months later on DVD. I'm a huge horror movie fan and I guess I just thought it would be at least entertaining.
How wrong I was. It's not the bad acting or dialogue that does this movie in. It's just the complete lack of originality that makes this a task to sit through. The plot is so routine that it's laughable. A group of youth offenders are sent to clean up an old, dirty hotel for community service. This just happens to be the same hotel where a vicious, deranged serial killer is holed up. And then, as per usual in these films, they get killed off one by one. I know this is the standard slasher movie plot, but would it have killed them to add just one twist or interesting element to the story? Even the characters are the typical clichés. A backstory about the killer's childhood abuse is touched upon but never fully explained.
You can usually count on the gore in these types of movies to at least provide some sort of visceral thrill but, with the exception of a few moments, it is all dull. Kane pretty much kills everyone with his hook on a chain and then gouges their eyes out, which gets repetitive by the second time he does it.
Knowing that he has virtually no story, Gregory Dark, a famed porn director, overdoses us with every "cool" camera trick he can think of. Instead of jolting the picture to life, it just further numbs us to the film.
The only thing "See No Evil" has going for it is Kane. Say what you will about him, but if I saw his character in real life, I would run away as fast as I could. He doesn't even need to act (I think he says a total of three words throughout the entire film) but he just oozes brutality. Too bad the writers couldn't give him a better vehicle.
All in all, this is just a complete waste of time. Even if you're a die-hard slasher-flick fan, it will still manage to bore you. A couple more of these and the slasher film genre will be completely dead.
