Event Horizon – Horror Movie

Event Horizon

Event Horizon (1997) was directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and written by Philip Eisner. The film was starring quite of few really awesome stars but the most famous being Laurence Fishburne and Sam Neill. Paul Anderson (what he went by for this film) become a well known director for Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil, Death Race, and quite a few other films. Laurence is well known for his role in Matrix and Sam Neill was in Jurassic Park.


This film should have been subtitled “liberate tuteme ex inferis”. This film really plays with the mind and tears into the soul. A derelict ship with an experimental drive floats in space, when a seemingly small crew is asked to find out what happened to it and the crew on board.

The film takes it’s time developing a relationship with each character. Not only is there great depth, but there is mortifying selections of their past that comes to light when they finally find Event Horizon (the name of the ship). Event Horizon.3Their deaths are personalized as well, which really provided sui generis quality.  The performances of our star actors, Sam and Laurence blow this ship out of the galaxy and the terror that builds with the claustrophobic surroundings really adds to the build up that creates this masterpiece.

The entire film was it’s own structure of beauty and still to this day in 2016 there has not been a film that can surmount to it’s status. This film I hold very high in the horror world and even higher in the sci-fi horror world.

10/10 black-holes!
