About this product
- DescriptionIn this eerie science-fiction ghost story, an astrophysicist (Sam Neill), haunted by the memory of his wife's suicide, joins a rescue mission to salvage his life's work: the Event Horizon, a prototype spacecraft capable of faster-than-light travel that has been missing for seven years. Their arrival triggers contact with something beyond human experience--and more dangerous than ever imaginable. Similar in plot to Andrei Tarkovsky's eponymous screen adaptation of Stanislaw Lem's science-fiction novel SOLARIS, EVENT HORIZON provides some truly potent moments in its often potent combination of horror and sci-fi.

Gothic, Gory Sci-Fi Horror. Very Stylish.
If you are a Sci-Fi fan then this film is a must-see. It is a combination of superb Science Fiction with a Horror twist. "Be warned. Don't mess with the forces of nature and Physics!" Paul Anderson, even so young, has directed this film very well. He has enlisted the services of some of the best film-makers in the business, who have created a very stylish, almost gothic atmosphere. The cast are excellent, especially Laurence Fishburne and Sam Neill. Includes, deleted scenes and "The making of" documentary.

Effectively disturbing........The darker side of space!
*** This review may contain spoilers *** Unfairly dismissed as a combination of Alien and Hellraiser, Event Horizon is one of those films that should be ranked among the classics of it's genre yet has somehow fallen by the wayside to be revered by movie geeks and horror aficionados but ultimately ignored by the mainstream. What's especially surprising is that this excellent film came from the directing skills of Paul W Anderson who was also responsible for such tragic misfires as Resident Evil and Alien Versus Predator and shows that there is more to Hollywood's Generic Director For Hire than first imagined. Set in the year 2047 the story concerns the sudden reappearance of a prototype spaceship (the Event Horizon of the title) which vanished on it's maiden voyage seven years previously. A salvage ship called The Lewis And Clark is sent out to investigate and brings along Dr William Weir (Sam Neil), a physics expert originally responsible for the ship's creation. They dock with the Horizon but find no signs of life and as they set about making repairs, the crew begin to experience hallucinations and sense that they are not alone... So far so very familiar but this is far, far more than a rip off disguising itself as a 'homage.' For one thing there is no predatory alien hunter on the loose and instead the horror is far more psychological. Not that there isn't a fair amount of violence and gore but the gradual sense of unease that builds up to it is crafted more on the crew's growing sense of anxiety and paranoia. Plus, there is no definitive explanation given for what they are experiencing. Just what are these Ghosts from their pasts doing on this ship? And what exists on the other side of the black hole? Another dimension where mankind was never meant to go or as the movie itself suggests but doesn't confirm, the very depths of hell itself? Couple this with the excellent set design - the ship is modelled on the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris - and the pulse-pounding moments in the latter half when the chaos sets in and you have one tremendously enjoyable horror film. Best watched alone at night with all the lights off where you can properly get swept up in it's claustrophobic atmosphere, you'll never need eyes to see again. Read full review

a real class leading film. great idea and a pleasure to see and hear!!
event horizon is a catastrophically underrated piece of film making. the plot is for the most part relatively simple but still engrossing and while being mainly psychologically scary has moments of utter grotesqueness and really explores the idea of what a bad time really would be like at its maximum effect. the acting is great and keeps you interested and the cinematography is simple and unfussed leaving you to absorb the tale unfolding. it has a couple of very effective camera effects and a small amount of cgi, just the right amount as it remains more believable in my eyes. beautifully imagined and realised and a good audio score to boot. one of my all time faves!!
