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.

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.

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.

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.

There is little to recommend in this nonsensical, repulsively gory outer-space yarn other than moody interiors and a few adequate special effects.

A loud and nasty hunk of science-fiction horror.

Climax follows climax until the weary viewer wants to cry, "Stop, already!"
Dec 15, 2018
The sets are indeed terrific and the special effects quite remarkable, as the chill of the uncertain future is mixed with a steamy gothic past. But, to paraphrase Winston Churchill, never have so many done so much to such little purpose.
Dec 15, 2018
But, to its credit, Event Horizon never pretends to be anything other than a series of highly efficient rip-offs.
Dec 15, 2018
Very early on, this defective dramatic vehicle runs out of fuel, degenerates into a slasher/Hellraiser wannabe and self- destructs among explosions, flames and streams of blood.
Dec 15, 2018
Director Anderson gets points for skillfully choreographing all of this, but he loses them for a consistent desire to brutalize the audience.
Dec 15, 2018
Don't worry, it's not you. It really doesn't make any sense.

By the time the story gets rolling, the filmmakers are trying unsuccessfully to scare the audience with sudden loud noises and gallon upon gallon of fake blood.
