Screaming Sunday: Event Horizon

By s. Sunday, November 27, 2011 ,
Sati's movie rating - 64/100
Plot: A rescue crew investigates a spaceship Event Horizon that disappeared into a black hole and has now returned...with someone or something new on-board.
The heroes: The crew on a spaceship, involving mostly your usual sci-fi ensemble - a scientist, a woman, black guy, a hero and a guy who knows a lot
The antagonists: Hell in space and madness that comes along with it.
Scare factor: 3/5 evil pumpkins - mostly jump scares
Gore factor:4/5 bloody Leatherfaces
- very graphic, bloody and gory, but most of those images are very short and you would have to pause them to see what exactly is going on.
What makes it so great? "Event Horizon" is like a blend of "Alien", "Hellriser" and "Solaris", it's not as good as any of those movies, but it's decent horror movie with interesting sci-fi elements and good cast.
Best scene: The scene where the crew listens to the last transmission from Event Horizon.
Oh-oh something's not right line: "There - I think that says "ex inferis." "Save yourself... from hell.""
Morbid trivia: According to the DVD commentary, sequences deleted from the "Visions of Hell" include orgies and sadomasochism killing the Event Horizon's original crew.
Is there a twist? No, not in this one, at least not in the end of the film.
Hint: Watch with lights on.
Unsuitable for: People who hate when something happens to the eyes - there are lots of eye terror images here. Gauging, ripping name it, it's here. Also it may freak out people who believe in Hell.
Repercussions: Being extra careful about your eyes.
