¿Qué dicen los demás?

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Event Horizon

    Tom Cochrane once sang, "Life is a highway." But for director Paul W.S. Anderson, Life is a Hallway. Anderson's geometric obsessions are given perhaps their purest expression in "Event Horizon": perfect spheres presented with off-kilter framing, pools of water reflected in pools of eyes. This might be a film in service to itself, production design as raison d'être, but we'd be lucky if every B-Movie looked this good.

  • Wee Hunk's rating of the film Event Horizon

    Still holds up well 21 years later. It's a solid cast, even if some of the scenes are a bit silly. That's what you get for crossing dimensions. Of course if you need a madman, you've always got Sam Neill, who made a bit of a career out of it. Starting with 'Possession' and including 'In the Mouth of Madness'.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Event Horizon

    In '97 this weird hybrid of science fiction, 'Hellraiser' and Brian Yuzna style body horror fell with a thud and failed to find an audience. 20 years later and it's reputation improved in some circles this is still one strange abomination that ignores such basics as plot development and characterizations in getting to its nowhere conclusion. When the screen flashes 'the end' one is simply left saying 'really?'.

  • T. J. Mesen's rating of the film Event Horizon

    Better than Alien. Aesthetically on a level of its own with regards to other sci-fi horror films. Smartly omitting (for the most part) the depiction of a physical embodiment of horror. Instead focusing on a nightmarish mood to match the inexplicable hell that ails its characters. Unfortunately, the final act is anti-climatic and its "positive" outcome completely out of key. PWSA's original cut must be amazing.

  • Thomas's rating of the film Event Horizon

    Effective disturbing 'haunted house' movie set in space. Genuinely horrific, with some decent scares along the way. The plot loses weight towards the end and starts to rely too heavily on the cliches of horror and sci-fi genres. A shame as it has some good concepts.

  • Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film Event Horizon

    A mad sci-fi horror film, too bad you don't see films like this being made anymore. It's got plenty of good thrills/chills and an interesting storyline. (I've never hated seeing a P.W.S. Anderson work that I disliked.)

  • Zachary T.'s rating of the film Event Horizon

    I knew this was no masterpiece long before Sam Neil started ranting about 'dimensions of pure evil,' reaching his arms towards the camera and yelling 'NOOOOOOO' like a Saturday morning cartoon villain. But, Paul 'What Script?' Anderson's dopey, try-hard enthusiasm is genuine enough to be contagious, sometimes. "Event Horizon" is loving, geeky, cult interstellar horror; a mashup of lost Hellraiser and Alien sequels.

  • Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Event Horizon

    It's brought down by some bad acting, dated special effects and corny Hollywood blockbuster tropes. That said, without spoiling anything, the premise is downright Lovecraftian in its manipulation of "Fear of the Unknown" and it presents a suitably eerie atmosphere at many points, and it features some great set design to boot. I'd love to see another director build upon what's been set up here.
