    Synopsis


    Event Horizon
    In this sci-fi/horror scarefest, Dr. William Weir (Sam Neill) is a scientist who has designed a spacecraft called Event Horizon which will explore the outer reaches of space past the planet Neptune; the ship employs a special transport mechanism that, in effect, creates a black hole that the ship can pass through, allowing it to travel tremendous distances in a few seconds. The Event Horizon mysteriously disappears in the midst of a mission with no trace of either the ship or its crew, but it reappears in Neptune's orbit after a seven year absence and it's sending out a distress signal. The spaceship Lewis and Clark, and Dr. Weir, are sent to investigate; the crew -- Captain Miller (Laurence Fishburne), pilot Smith (Sean Pertwee), engineer Justin (Jack Noseworthy), navigator Starck (Joely Richardson), physician D.J. (Jason Isaacs), and emergency technicians Peters (Kathleen Quinlan) and Cooper (Richard T. Jones) -- are already tired and unenthusiastic about this assignment, and somewhat confused by Weir's reports. The crew of the Lewis and Clark are convinced that Weir is not telling them something, and when they discover the Event Horizon, they find that things are not what they seem, and an evil presence has taken over the ship. Incidentally, the term "event horizon" describes the outer boundaries of a black hole. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      I watched this years ago and it scared the living daylights out of me. (I literally gave away the vhs tape.) Recently I found it on a list of movies and read more about it and found the premise intriguing. I had the opportunity to view it again and decided I needed to own it. It's still scary as heck but for different reasons. The gory scenes go by in flashes & you really don't see much unless you watch the behind the scenes features on the disc. That being said the movie has a lot of suspense to it and a certain amount of intelligence to the plot I think. I now find Event Horizon is disturbingly good.

      Evil genius+ evil ship = one horrific film!

      Hellraiser meets 2001. A new drive for space travel creates a dimensional gate to a place of pure evil. Terror and horrific events and scenes await those who are brave enough to watch. Overall a fantastic movie, with only a few science based flubs in it. There are some mistakes such as sound in the vacuum of space, or water being in liquid form when there is supposed to sub-freezing temperatures. Other than the minor mistakes, (you hardly notice them) this is a terrifying film that will make anyone, and I mean anyone, afraid of the dark once more.

      This is one of my wife and I's favorite movies. It doesn't get better than this. The plot is very unique and very intense. The acting was supurb, and the special effects were fantastic. This film is the perfect mix between horror and sci-fi. This is a one of a kind experience, a definite must own. I highly recommend it! Also, if you like this film, I can recommend Dark City, Sunshine and Serenity.

      Lawrence Fishburn and Sam Neill really make this one "Click". Pretty good special effects to the point that it doesn't become "unreal". Video conversion to Blu-ray is very well done, clearer than DVD and the audio is very clear and bright, most older movies that get converted to Blu-ray turn out very staticy and muffled. This one is not. A must have for your Sci-Fi collection.

      One of the scariest Sci-Fi flicks out there

      When I first saw Event Horizon, I saw it in the theaters because another movie that I wanted to see was sold out. I went to the theater expecting a comedy and ended up seeing a SCARY Sci-Fi movie. Event Horizon is one of the most twisted movies out there. If you haven't seen it, brace yourself for freaky trip into outer-space with Lawrence Fishburne.

      The movie is very thought provoking and creepy you do not know what to expect right down to the very end scene. With that being said it falls short revealing some parts of the movie. I will not give anything away but you may finish the movie wondering about a few points in it

      Not a bad movie for a spacecraft in outer space. I usually don't care much for those type of movies.
