In this eerie science-fiction ghost story, an astrophysicist (Sam Neill), haunted by the memory of his wife's suicide, joins a rescue mission to salvage his life's work: the Event Horizon, a prototype spacecraft capable of faster-than-light travel that has been missing for seven years. Their arrival triggers contact with something beyond human experience--and more dangerous than ever imaginable. Similar in plot to Andrei Tarkovsky's eponymous screen adaptation of Stanislaw Lem's science-fiction novel SOLARIS, EVENT HORIZON provides some truly disturbing moments in its often potent combination of horror and sci-fi.

"Hell is only a word. The reality is much, much worse."
Pros: Sam Neill. Laurence Fishburne. Quantum physics. Nasty gore. No funny stuff.
Cons: Obviously inspired by about 23 other movies.
Dark, nasty sci-fi/horror with a metaphysical twist and more than a few delicious gore scenes. Who said Quantum Theory is no fun? Read More at Epinions.com

"Event Horizon": I Stand Guilty Of Finding It A Pleasure
Pros: Great scares and excellent FX.
Cons: Stupid ending; you're not allowed to admit that you like it.
Scary, gory and intriguingly ambiguous, Paul Anderson's one and only decent film is an overlooked crowdpleaser. Read More at Epinions.com
