This could have been a great film, and i thought it was going to be after a good first half, but then the 2nd half went and ruined everything, very very disappointing/terrible second half in my opinion.

One of the weirdest and creepiest movies I've seen in a long time! Bit scared to go to bed now :')

Just awesome, one of my favourite movies, and HIGHLY underrated! Despite liking horrors, I don't find many of them scary, but this one was sssscary man! It probably didn't help that the first time I saw it, I was a little high. Had no idea what it was about going in to watch at the cimema, but was the only decent movie on at the time. Like chiew said, gave me the heeby jeebies and then some!

If you like your horrors a little less graphic, and a little more physiological, give this a whirl... but preferable NOT while you are high, although it's just as scary sober, as I've found after watching it several times since, something I rarely do with any movie.

Clearly it took some inspiration from Hellraiser's series, but still a fast-paced horror sci-fi, enjoyable on its own. Also Richard T. Jones made me laugh much more than it should.

Riddled with stupid decisions that makes you bang your head against the wall.

Predictable, cheesy and a lackluster ending, but it's still fun Sci-fi B-Movie schlock. There's actually some cool designs, and potential for real scares here.

I don't get it...this movie could have been so great if they didn't screw up the second half. Wtf was that?

Best SciFi horror yet

Story: 7/10...so much potential! Space travel. Relativity and black holes. Hell and other dimensions. But about 2/3 of the way through any sense of developing these themes is abandoned.
Dialogue: 5/10...script isn't laughable, but is filled with tropes and predictable conversations.
Performances: 5/10...nobody is incredibly believable in their role, but neither is anyone abysmal. Fishburne's performance gets better as the movie trucks along, but Neill just becomes silly. Everyone else is flat as can be.
Misc.: 4/10...bad CGI, lazy sets, boring camerawork and editing, and awful soundtrack. But there are a couple good scares I guess.
Overall: 5/10...rides the line between good/good and bad/good so ends up being pretty forgettable.

Event Horizon is a terrifying science-fiction horror film from director Paul W.S. Anderson. When a spaceship that has been to the edge of the universe mysteriously returns after having gone missing for 7 years, a search and rescue mission is sent to investigate; but they soon discover that the ship has brought something back with it. Featuring Laurence Fishburne, Sam Neill, Jason Isaacs, and Joely Richardson, the film has a strong cast. And, Anderson does a good job creating an intense and frightening atmosphere. Additionally, the set designs are especially good and make for an interesting futuristic look. However, there are some problems with the tone, and the gore is a bit gratuitous. Frightening and horrific, Event Horizon is an impressive dark thriller.

It was probably super movie back in '98

One of the most creepy SF movies ever...

The least shitty movie from Paul W.S. Anderson. It's bizarre and pretty insane.

One of few films to give me the heeby jeebies.

Wild ride, amazing cast, quality jumpscares (my definition: a good jumpscare, but also blatantly telegraphed, for the most part), and a story that kept me on my toes right up to the credits! The effects are amazing for 1997. Honestly the only real fault I found was that the story was clearly more in-depth at one point, and while I think the director is right, the scares are more effective this way, with the viewer left to mostly imagine what's happening, the rest of the cut plot bits would've helped flesh out the story. Thanks, Paramount! I think I'll keep it around for another viewing in a couple of weeks or a month, just to see how the plot feels a second time and knowing what I know now.

Streamed via Hulu (Cinemax)

I'm never a big fan of sci-fi horror but I'm surprised I enjoyed this one. The first half was bad to be honest, lots of uninteresting science talk almost put me to sleep, but then it start getting better and pulled my interest back in. The story was quite solid with fantastic production design, great atmosphere, good direction, and those unexpected disturbing moments. The cast wasn't that great except Fishburne, he's fantastic. The CGI feels dated but I love the practical effects. Overall it's fun and enjoyable for the most parts. Alien, Aliens, and Alien3 remain untouched.

Cosmic Horror done wrong: the movie. Great concept but lacklustre execution. Very reference-heavy. But man do I want to see In the Mouth of Madness now.
