Here's my review, feel free to share yours.


It's really only worth watching for Punk. I'm a huge horror nerd, but this is alright, at best. A run-of-the-mill B-horror. No real scares, predictable twists, some decent imagery. It feels like a throwback to 70s/80s haunted house horror, but feels very cheaply made, even for an independent film. I was entertained, however, by Punk being blasted with all manners of goo/gore. Some great gif and meme material.


I feel as though Punk is trying to break into the acting business (moreso than he's trying to come back to wrestling), much like his buddy Bautista, but I don't feel this film will get him any substantial roles. He's gonna have to pay his dues into a competitive business for a long while. Rocky and Bautista had unique looks that favored them getting roles in mainstream films, Punk doesn't have that advantage

From what I heard he plays close to his wrestling persona so is fine in it. He's also in the remake of Cronenberg's Rabid.

Kind of, sort of, but not really? I thought he did a solid job and liked that his character wasn't a cookie cutter or boring protagonist. I may have been harsh in my review, but it wasn't like an awful movie or anything. I did like that it was more suspense based and had almost no jump scares. It's merely just there than something memorable

They remade that? Loved the original

have you seen the remake? American Mary is great. Love me some Katherine Isabelle

Deezy, yes they were. But their post- American Mary stuff is trash. Another one of gazillion directors who have the lone good movie

Yeah I've seen Rabid the remake and I did like it. I do justice to Cronenberg's vision but also updated the themes.

Disagree with you and Deezy about See No Evil 2. That was a perfectly enjoyable slasher sequel. They were basically riffing off Halloween 2. Plus Isabelle and Danielle Harris are good as always.

That's good to hear.

I actually haven't seen I see no evil 1 or 2. Was curious though, love me a gory slasher. Danielle Harris is in those? She's one of my favorites. Love her in Hatchet series

Harris is in the second one, not the first one. Not seen the first, but expect it to be rubbish. Will give it a watch one day.
