Hugely underrated sci-fi horror,
This review is from: Event Horizon (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD]  (DVD)
I loved this film when I first watched it years ago. It braught back the claustrophobic, tense atmosphere of the Alien movies. I loved the concept as well; a spaceship gets lost in a part of space so far away humanity can't even fathom it, and then appears again, its crew gone. Another crew gets roped into retrieving the wreck, only to discover the ship has brought something back with it. And no, it isn't an alien monster (because, let's face it, that would be lame). It held my attention right throughout and was proper scarey at many points. I remember the moment where they found the ships digital log and watch what happened to the crew. Chilling.
A little gem of a sci-fi horror (and possibly one of the very few ood movies Paul Anderson ever made) that shouldn't be overlooked. If you like your sci-fi to be dark and claustrophobic, you'll like this.
