It is the sequel to the 2006 See No Evil. Unlike the original, which had a theatrical release, the film was released in 2014 direct to DVD and Blu-ray. The film received mixed to positive reviews, mostly focused on the Soska's directorial style.
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 this deranged psychopath once again starts to pick them apart one by one.
Amy (Danielle Harris), Seth (Kaj-Erik Eriksen) and their boss Holden (Michael Eklund) are working the graveyard shift at a local city morgue. As Amy is preparing to meet friends at a bar for her birthday, Holden receives news that a number of bodies are being delivered, the victims of a mass murder perpetuated by Jacob Goodnight (Kane) at the Blackwell Hotel. Amy decides to cancel her plans and help her colleagues with the deliveries. Amy and Seth process the corpses, including that of Goodnight. As Amy leaves Seth to finish the work, she is startled to find Holden has allowed her friends Tamara (Katharine Isabelle), Kayla (Chelan Simmons), Carter (Lee Majdoub) and her brother Will (Greyston Holt) to throw a birthday party in the morgue. During the party, Will warns Seth to stay away from Amy, believing she deserves better than him, causing Seth to leave the party and return to work. Will tells Amy of his disapproval of her dropping out of Med School to work in the morgue, angering Amy who also leaves the party.
Tamara, who's fascinated by death and serial killers, leaves the party with Carter to go look at Jacob's body. The experience of being in a room with the body of a real murderer arouses her and she and Carter begin to have sex. The act revives Jacob, who kills Carter while Tamara escapes. Jacob raids the morgue, outfitting himself with a burn victim mask and an array of surgical tools before cutting the building's electricity.
Hearing Tamara's screams, the rest of the party goers attempt to find her; Holden, separated from the rest of the group, is captured and killed by Jacob.
Amy, Will, Kayla and Tamara attempt to reach the upper levels of the hospital, only to find that Jacob has barricaded all of the exits. Seth arrives with keys that will allow them access through a locked emergency stairwell, but Jacob attacks, causing the group to split up. Kayla seeks refuge in a bathroom, where Jacob mortally wounds her. When Kayla begins praying, Jacob suffers a breakdown, remembering the abuse he suffered at the hands of his religious zealot mother. As Kayla dies from her injuries, Jacob asks her, "Why would God help you?" before setting off in search of the remaining party goers.
Jacob kills both Tamara and Will, whom he uses as bait to try and lure Amy and Seth into a trap. In the resultant attack, Seth is wounded by an electric knife; Amy takes him back to the morgue to cauterize the wound, where she reveals that she dropped out of medical school after realizing the inevitability of death. Realizing that one of the morgue windows leads to ground level, Amy breaks it and escapes, only to be confronted by Jacob in the parking lot. She retreats back inside, only to be followed by Jacob, who stabs her to death. Seth impales Jacob with the nozzle from a piece of embalming equipment and pumps his body full of embalming chemicals, apparently killing him.
Seth escapes the morgue through a broken window and drives away in his car. As he stops to open the gated entrance, he realizes that Jacob has followed him. Jacob attacks Seth from behind, gouging out his eyes.
The final shots of the film show each dead member of the cast before a final shot of Jacob breaking the fourth wall saying "I see it now".
