Event Horizon Reviews

Aug 28, 2022
Since its release, 25 years ago, it has taken on quite the following, and for many, it is because of its spectacularly disturbing mashup of camp and horror, sci-fi, and well, Sam Neill.

If Alien was a slasher movie on a spaceship, this is a haunted house movie on a spaceship. Much more likely to please gorehounds than science-fiction fans. [4K Blu-ray]

Worth a watch as it starts off slow and then gets better as it goes along.

In the end, and at least 30 minutes before, you get the idea that you're stranded in empty space.

The movie might never step out of the formidable shadow cast by Aliens, but Laurence Fishburne and Sam Neill embrace their roles as the cynical Captain Miller and idealistic engineer Weir to keep things watchable.

I didn't think many of the actors gave convincing performances that highlighted the insanity of what was happening around them. The stakes weren't there for the majority of the film for me.

This isn't necessarily a bad movie but some of the death scenes were just ridiculously brutal. It was disturbing.

Event Horizon feels like a once-in-a-lifetime cinematic excursion in sci-fi and pure, unfiltered horror that rarely ever comes along out of the studio system.

Still one of the best space horror films ever made...

It should be noted that this critical and commercial underachiever has over time emerged as the best of Paul W.S. Anderson's films.

After a very promising opening two-thirds, it all goes a little pear-shaped.

As the riddles unfold, characters wander off alone down dimly lit crawlspaces - to be terrorized by spectral visions and, smartly, disbelief from the crew members.

A movie where the contours of the cut ideas are more interesting than what ended up on the screen.
Dec 15, 2018
Despite a few nifty special effects, this sci-fi horror film, in which grisly things happen to a space crew after its members board an abandoned ship, is a boring and blood-soaked mess.
Dec 15, 2018
With high production values and low aspirations, Event Horizon begins as a mildly intriguing science-fiction movie and degenerates into yet another slasher flick about evil from another dimension.
Dec 15, 2018
Fishburne, Sam Neill, Joely Richardson and Sean Pertwee bring some class to the determinedly B-movie dialogue, and Anderson delivers some eye-poppingly nasty sequences that will please horror fans.
Dec 15, 2018
But unfortunately, Anderson can't seem to decide whether he's making a sci-fi thriller, a ghost story, a gory horror film or a metaphysical musing on the nature of good and evil.
Dec 15, 2018
There is little to recommend in this nonsensical, repulsively gory outer-space yarn other than moody interiors and a few adequate special effects.
Dec 15, 2018
A loud and nasty hunk of science-fiction horror.
