The Black Hole Reviews
This film is much closer to perhaps Aliens or even Event Horizon. It should be classified as a Sci-fi Space Horror film and many parts of it is. There's a general "eerieness" to the film which they captured it quite well, especially when B.O.B. told V.I.N.Cent that this ship is really a ship of the dead, a floating tomb.
Most people don't realize how old this film is. Many would say some ideas in there are already used in other films, without realizing those films are the ones copying this film. Overall, I say that this is a very well done film for its era.
It is spooky when it needs to be, exciting during the battle scenes, and was a good mystery from the begining.
A few "cutesy" Disney moments bring it down a wee bit, but don't significantly detract from the otherwise mature space opera.
