After a rain, a car drives through a puddle and splashes mud on a man’s designer boots. The owner of the boots follows the car back to a country manor and murders everyone inside. (Did he really kill everyone in the house because his boots get muddied? It is never really clear. Before his boots got splashed on, he was looking at violent comic books in a shop. Maybe Wertham was right.) Later, Sarah (Mia Farrow), the niece of the car’s driver, arrives at the house. As the result of a recent horse riding accident, Sarah is blind. She walks through the house, unaware that she is surrounded by dead bodies and unaware that the owner of the boots left behind a bracelet that he will soon be returning to retrieve.
Obviously inspired by Wait Until Dark, See No Evil is a well-done cat-and-mouse game between Sarah and her unseen stalker. Mia Farrow is great as the blind woman and the scenes of her unknowingly walking past the dead bodies of her family while being followed are tense and suspenseful. See No Evil has been overshadowed by Farrow’s other two horror films, Rosemary’s Baby and Full Circle, but it is definitely worth a look.
