Goldust might not be the easiest person to go to the movies with. Former WWE writer, Jensen Karp, recently took to Twitter to detail his experience with Goldust in such a scenario. Both attended the 2006 premiere of WWE Studios’ “See No Evil” starring Kane.
I was a writer at WWE in ‘06 & went to this premiere. Goldust came in full makeup & sat behind me, screaming at all the scary scenes and yelling "DON’T GO IN THERE" to characters for a straight hour and a half. When it ended he whispered in my ear, "Things will never be the same" https://t.co/qeaZclLlwR

Goldust at the See No Evil Premiere

It should be noted that Goldust recently celebrated his 10th year of sobriety.
Today is an important day for me. X yrs ago I was on deaths door while drugs and alcohol consumed my everything. But, by the grace of God, I survived. Sobriety is the most important thing in my life, and I am proud of me. #CleanIsCool #KeepSteppin #10Years #GodSobrietyFamily pic.twitter.com/Lx7M7ZmiJE

Unfortunately for everyone in the theater that day, Goldust was still 2 years away from getting sober.
See No Evil
WWE Studios’ “See No Evil” was released in theaters 12 years ago. It was universally panned by critics and holds an abysmal 8% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Despite this, the film is one of WWE Studios’ rare financial successes. The film cost $8 million to make and grossed over $18.6 million at the box office.
A sequel to the film was released straight to DVD in 2014.
