SUMMARY

A ship named the Event Horizon disappears after attempting to break the light speed barrier by opening a rift in space. Years later, the ship reappears. A salvage crew boards the vessel to assess what has happened, only to discover a malicious, unseen presence onboard.

WHAT'S GOOD

The creators of this film weren't kidding when they claimed it was one of the scariest films since The Exorcist. Let's be honest: truly terrifying films need to have some sort of sharp, intellectual edge, not just blood and guts. And while there have been an abundance of the latter, we've seen very few of the former. Event Horizon goes to great lengths to set up mood, setting. Everthing is cold, industrial, and for the first half of the film, the evil presence manifests itself in only the most subtle ways, making it all the more ominous. If we were living in a time when everyday people really were living in space, this movie would be utterly chilling, and you'd be back on earth in no time. The obvious fact that this movie takes place in space is the only thing that keeps it from hitting close to home. Otherwise, truly the most terrifying film to come along in years.

WHAT'S BAD

Despite how masterfully the evil is set up in the beginning, Event Horizon can't help deteriorating into your typical blood bath and demon parade a la Hellraiser by the end.

Rating: 8 out of 10 (0=Abysmal, 5=Average, 10=Excellent)
