There's something about a ship full of people in deep space who find themselves set upon by some malevolent force, that makes us smile like fools. Alien started it all for us, and years later it was Event Horizon that re-invigorated our love for Horror flicks set it space, but there are others out there that are just about as good, even if a lot of them are not purely Horror.
There just aren't a lot of Horror movies set in space, and so we had to be a bit liberal with the titles that we included on this list. Below, you'll find a few movies that lean more towards the Sci-Fi side of things, as well as a few that are straight-up B-movies. We even included Hellraiser: Bloodlines here, because it featured Cenobites in Space.
It's a small list that takes some liberty with boundaries, but Space Horror is a tiny sub-genre that we love, and so we felt that it deserved a bit of recognition.
For the first 6 movies in the list:
If you're in the mood for a truly quality Space Horror Flick, any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. Alien and Event Horizon are probably our all-time faves, but then they all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to the Space Sub-Genre.
For the remaining:
Below are the rest of our Best Space Horror Flicks, and of course, a few Honorable Mentions thrown in for good measure. Keep in mind that no "Best of" list is ever perfect, but merely a solid starting point for anyone looking to watch some great flicks.
