Synopsis

Double bill of films starring American wrestlers. Action thriller 'The Condemned' (2007) stars 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin as Jack Conrad, a death-row prisoner in a corrupt Central American prison who is 'purchased' by a wealthy television producer to take part in an illegal reality game show. Brought to a desolate island, Conrad finds himself trapped in a fight to the death against nine other condemned killers from all corners of the world. With no possible escape, and millions of viewers watching the uncensored violence online, Conrad must use all his strength to remain the last man standing and earn his only chance of freedom. 'See No Evil' (2006) is a slasher flick featuring the standard gang of gullibles getting into it with a reclusive psycho in a big ol' dark building. At seven feet tall and 400 pounds with a steel skull and fingernails that make Marilyn Manson look like a public schoolboy, Jacob Goodnight (played by WWE star Kane) is not a man you'd want to get into it with. However, while he's languishing in his peaceful if decrepit haunt, The Blackwell Hotel, a gang of cons doing clean-up for a community service order do just that. Worse yet - they're overseen by the very cop that put a bullet in Jacob's skull some years back. Goodnight snatches one of the party and, predictably, the others set out to get her back.
