Eschewing the predictable plotting and happy endings of recent big-budget sci-fi productions, Event Horizon emerges as a truly twisted, nightmarish summer shocker.

...a tremendously entertaining, flat-out disturbing horror effort that boasts a number of justifiably indelible sequences...

This film left me completely and utterly unable to sleep. So I look at this film with a great deal of respect.

The kind of story that early STAR TREK episodes bought the patent on years ago

If I were a psychologist hired to analyze the people who made this, I would conclude that everyone involved needed to take their inner child out back and shoot it.

Where's the application form for the job where you get paid to rip off the lamer and more bombastic aspects of Barker, Kubrick and Scott? I'm sorry I missed that notice.

Paul Anderson shoots things to look cool, but he has no grasp on how to modulate the visuals to carry the audience into the deepening nightmare of the plot.

Paul W.S. Anderson's outer space horror Event Horizon is an example of a potentially great and complex idea given a simplistic and ultimately ridiculous execution.

It's disheartening to see how quickly this movie degenerates from an intriguing premise into an absurd gore-a-thon.

The perils the actors face would be far more shuddersome were their characters more sharply delineated from the outset.

... incrível como um filme que suga tantos elementos de clássicos como 2001, Alien e Solaris pode ter resultado em uma besteira tão grande. Mas é este o talento de Anderson: dirigir besteiras colossais.
