A good movie

By now, I have seen almost all the movies directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and even though most of them were rather entertaining, to be honest, none of them actually managed to really impress me. This movie was however an exception. Indeed, I kept hearing some interesting things about it so I was quite eager to check it out and, eventually, I thought it was actually pretty good. First of all, the pr... read more

Good, but somewhat disturbing

This is like a sci-fi horror film that has some pretty interesting things behind it. It is a well put together film with lots to think about when the movie ends. It has some disturbing images, but after getting past those it is a pretty good movie. It has somewhat of a shpere feel for those who have seen that. There is something about going to hell and back on an experiemental spaceship that gets ... read more

I expected this to be a be a bland 80's horror flick. This expectation may contribute to my high rating, but I suspect that rewatching this film won't change my opinion of it much.

The cinematography, visual language, and set design were phenomenal. The corridors, in particular, were well designed set pieces that created a sense of claustrophobia.

“By the time "Event Horizon" premiered in 1997, sci-fi horror was already quite an over-saturated genre. Films like "Alien" and "Predator" saw dozens of low-budget imitations, with the sub-genre devolving into a collection of clichés. But this little film happened to inject the formula with enough originality to become a cult classic. Refreshingly, the film opts on old-school scares rather than extra-terrestrial terror.

It's pretty much a "ghost ship" tale, but with the ship in question being a spacecraft. Still, the film's namesake vessel is just as imposing and frightening a structure as any haunted cruise-liner. There is great attention to detail regarding it's interior, and some incredibly striking, memorable visuals. It's the long, unending tunnels, dark corridors and stran” read more

"19.2. Kun kerran Dead Calmissa nähtiin Sam Neilliä tutkimassa hylättyä alusta, jonka matkustajat ovat kuolleet, niin minut valtasi halu katsoa Event Horizon uudestaan. Miekkonen lähtee siis taas kerran tutkimaan jostain putkahtanutta tutkimusalusta ja selvittämään siihen liittyvää mysteeriä. En ole sisustusammattilainen, mutta en välttämättä käyttäisi gigeriläistä lähestymistapaa vuosia kestäviä avaruusmatkoja varten suunniteltujen alusten kalustamisessa. Avaruusaluksen "

"14.6. Hyvä ystäväni sanoi, että Event Horizon on scifiä parhaimmillaan. Annan hänen valehtelunsa anteeksi, sillä vaikka elokuva ei ole välttämättä scifiä parhaimmillaan, on se kiinnostava tapaus. Omaperäinen, näyttävä ja yllättävän rohkea. Paino erityisesti sanalle näyttävä."

" I'm a sucker for all types of Lovecraftian horror that truly emphasizes on cosmic horror. EVENT HORIZON is truly great in that regard. It builds suspense by consistently playing at our fear of the unknown and it never truly tells us what exactly is going on. This makes the film as terrifying as it is fascinating to watch. Add to that some solid performances, excellent production design and decent special effects, and you've got yourself a little gem of a horror film that lives all the way up to"
