Go To
"I see it."

A 2014 sequel to See No Evil, directed by the Soska sisters with Glenn "Kane" Jacobs reprising his role as Jacob Goodnight and co-starring Katharine Isabelle and Danielle Harris.

Following the climax of the previous film, Jacob Goodnight's corpse is on his way to the hospital, and is taken to its morgue. He wakes up in there and goes on a rampage on the medical students and doctors residing there.

This film has examples of:

  • Action Girl: Amy grows into one as she has to fight for her life.
  • Agony of the Feet: Holden gets his ankle caught by Jacob's signature hook and chain.
  • Asshole Victim: Will is found dead when the cast tries to look for him.
  • Badass Normal: Seth manages to put up a fight against the killer in the final climax. Sadly, his victory was short-lived.
  • Chairman of the Brawl: Seth surprises Jacob with a well-placed chair smash from behind the corner.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Plenty. Although poor Seth probably receives the worst when he has Jacob's fingers driven into his eyes. Kayla's is also quite slow and prolonged.
  • Creator Cameo: The Soska Sisters have one as dead bodies in the morgue at the end of the opening credits.
  • Dangerous Windows: Seth gets grabbed by Jacob through a small window on a locked door, but Will helps Seth get free.
  • Decoy Protagonist: Amy is built up to be the Final Girl, right down to casting scream queen Danielle Harris in the role.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Poor Seth; Amy never seems to notice him until after Jacob's killed almost everyone.
  • Downer Ending: Jacob kills off the entire cast and escapes the hospital.
  • Eye Scream: When Seth realizes that Jacob is still alive, he backs away in horror and dismay, only bumping into the villain. Jacob jams his fingers into Seth's eyes.
  • Final Girl: Subverted. Amy appears this way, but is killed off near the ending leaving Seth to be the final boy of the movie... until Jacob Goodnight kills him as well.
  • I Love the Dead: Tamara straddles Jacob's corpse. When Carter finds it disturbing, Tamara just shrugs it off.
  • Hope Spot:
    • Seth seems to have killed Jacob Goodnight and is driving to safety, only to have Jacob kill Seth.
    • A small one is also present for Will, seeing as Amy and Seth go to save him. It turns out he's dead when they reach him.
  • Jerkass: Will is rather controlling of his sister Amy. He doesn't approve of her working in the morgue, for one.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Tamara. She decorated a room in the morgue for Amy's birthday with the usual fixing and a blow-up doll.
  • Malevolent Masked Man: Jacob wears a burn victim mask after he awakes in the morgue.
  • Neck Lift: Jacob kills both Carter and Kayla using this.
  • Rage Against the Reflection: Jacob Goodnight has a mental breakdown and he smashes a mirror after snapping Kayla's neck.
  • Sex Signals Death: Carter, who is killed by Jacob Goodnight moments after he and Tamara have sex.
  • Slashed Throat: How Tamara dies. The camera lingers on her mortal wound spurting blood.
  • Slut-Shaming: A rather dark version of the trope. Jacob refers to Kayla as a "dirty whore" after attacking her.
  • Super-Strength: Despite his temporary death, Jacob Goodnight is still as strong as he was in the first film.
