There is still no official release date for WWE Studios’ See No Evil 2 starring Kane but it’s still expected for an October release. Kyle P. sent word that UpcomingHorrorMovies.com recently updated their page on See No Evil 2 and the MPAA rating has been announced as R for “horror violence, some gore, and sexual content.” WWE Studios’ Michael Luisi noted last fall that they were pushing for hard R ratings.
The Soska Twins, who directed the movie, recently spoke with RenegadeCinema.com. They felt that the first See No Evil fell short of creating a character that was close to horror legends like Freddy Kreuger and Michael Myers so in the new movie, Kane’s Jacob Goodnight character has a new look, his own theme music and an array of new weapons. The Soska Twins are hoping everyone will be surprised by the movie.
They also hope to change how women in horror are perceived with See No Evil 2. They tried to create smart characters that would give Goodnight a run for his money with actresses Katharine Isabelle and Danielle Harris.
The Soska Twins noted that while American Mary, which is an insane horror movie available on Netflix, was low budget and involved producers declining many of their requests, the WWE Studios producers gave them a lot of room to work with. They say the movie might just bring the horror genre back to its heights that it soared 30 years ago.
