I heard about this movie the other day and im intrigued, but the reviews are either good or terrible for it. Its also supposed to be really scary but idk, is it worth the 6 bucks to rent?

That movie has been on TV in the United States for a few years... are you renting it?

I really, really liked that movie, good acting for a cheaper SF film. I thought it was made-for-tv until now.

Spaceship goes through somewhere it's not supposed to... won't ruin it by saying more, unless you read the spoiler below:

The exploration vessel "Event Horizon" goes out of phase to travel large distances across space. If I recall correctly, they make their first trip to Neptune or Uranus. It turns out that when they went into another dimension to travel, they phased into the dimension that Hell exists in. Satan possesses several of the crew to try and pull them all back into hell by rigging the controls after a rescue crew enters the EH.

I watched the film before. It was okay. Reminded me of Doom game for some reason. But you don't see zombies and shit popping up before your face (iirc).

This movie scared the piss outta me when I saw it as a little kid. I'm interested to see what I would think now that I'm older.

Awesome movie for sure. Pretty creepy too, although nothing really startling, it just messed with your head.

if you're a fan of sci-fi and/or horror you'll want to watch this movie.

rented it, my thoughts

it started off decent and even had me caring about a charactor for a few seconds, but the ending didn't answer any questions at all. Wasn't that good but entertaining enough. BTW the few flashes of "gore" were not scary or disgusting

To be honest, I love this film, I first watched it when I was younger, and it scared the pants off me! Now It does nothing like that, but I still think its worth while watching at least once, and as you have, yay!

Fecking ownage film, one of my favs... And gives a fresh spin to the Sci-Fi movie genre.

Its pretty meh, but as a horror it has its moments. Eye gouging has always freaked me out and this is definitely a good movie if you like those out there sort of movies. Similiar to the movie where the jellyfish go inside the persons mouth killing him (the Sphere I think its called) only in space.

I also cringed when that one guy who was possessed goes into the airlock, and then opens up the hatch out to space. His blood starts boiling in his veins and shit... ewww..

Oh, and another creepy part, when that guy figures out that he mis-translated the Latin in the audio tape.

"Save your souls"

..or something like that.

Event horizon is a good "Sunday night, nothing on tv and have to wake up early in the morning" film. When I first saw this when I was a kid I was so scared that its kind of funny icon_biggrin.gif

The Sphere is about a Sphere.

The Sphere is about a Sphere.

off-topic but the book Sphere by Micheal Crighton was nothing much like the movie. It was kind of a sci-fi action movie set underwater. Not much horror at all. It is also extremely awesome.

Back on-topic, I always wonder why people don't mix genres up more. Like, a horror movie set in space. It crossed genres and turned out pretty cool. More movies should do that (instead of the crappy sequals and remakes we're getting spammed with nowadays)

Agreed, variety is always good to have.


I remember watching this as a kid, honestly scared me pretty bad. Since everything is alot better when you're a kid, I'm going to rewatch it to get a better opinion.
Wuggles for everyone!

I can't recall any films, I've ever watched, that comes close to how "scary" of a movie this is. No movie has ever scared me, but this one sure as hell came close. The gore and thrill of it was enough to do so and keep me entertained.

The main reason it does this is by being subtle. Was hard for me to predict what would happen next in many cases. But it's been a few years since I've last seen this.
