    Event Horizon is easily the creepiest movie I've ever seen. It probably helps that I watched it by myself in the dark at about 2:00 am.

    This wasn't a bad movie -- it was one of the better attempts at sci-fi horror and I feel that it succeeded at least partly on the horror side and pretty well on the sci-fi side. As other reviewers have noted it doesn't have a big rubber alien or hairy boogeyman. All of the tension and drama is based on the fear of the unknown. Making a film like this scary is probably more challenging and even after a few years this one still holds up pretty well.

    This was am excellent sci fi film. Haven't been that frightened since I saw the original Alien movie. Makes you think twice about what we may discover with space exploration.

    I saw this movie first back in the 90's. It was good then and it is good now. It seems maybe a little corny now, but it may just be because I was a lot younger when I first saw it. Good Movie!!!!

    Before I go off reviewing this cult classic, I'll share my personal history with this movie, which dates back nearly eleven years ago. I remember finishing up the forth grade back in June of 1998 and my brother rented Event Horizon from the local video store at the time and I watched it with him. When it was over, I was scared s***less the whole summer break. Oddly enough, I kept watching the movie throughout the summer, despite the fact that it was the most terrifying movie I've ever seen (and remains so to this day). I remember everyday from that summer, constantly fearing that a deranged Dr. Weir would break into my room and ritualistically end my existence. Even worse, I vividly remember my brother reenacting the infamous "video transmission" scene by holding golf balls covered in fake blood (to look like eyeballs) and covered himself with fake blood as he was saying "Liberate tutame ex inferis." Summer break eventually ended and with school starting up, I was finally able ... Read more

    This is a great flick. Good action, sci-fi horror, and acting. Highly recommended.

    What a great movie. I saw part of this about 10 years ago maybe, and then forgot about it. So I had the chance to see it again. And I didn't remember any of what I saw from before, but I was pleasantly surprised. I think this film holds up very well for today, actually better in many ways (not to much over used computer special effects) The styling is fantastic, it's not very often you get someone taking the time to really make very artistic sets, it's just great, the Core was awesome, I couldn't have asked them to make it any better. There where so many shots that seemed very framed and set up perfectly, it reminded me a lot of the original Alien film, but with out a "they totally stole that from Alien" kind of way. I do think this movie was a bit ahead of it's time, it would have probably been better had it been made this year or 5 years from now. As like many future Sci-Fi movies, they never get the time line right, it takes place in 2047, and we have a small colony on the M... Read more
