Event Horizon - re:View

Jay makes Mike sit down and relive a nightmare from his youth... Event Horizon. LET ME SHOW YOU!!!



  • Ugh... Event Horizon. This movie has more cringey pseudo-macho dude-bro dialogue per minute than any other space/horror movie ever made. "I'm the life-saver and heart-breaker" (A: That makes no sense and, worse, doesn't even rhyme, a**hat, and B: Really, just shut the f**k up, Lt. Stepin Fetchit). Jay and Mike hit it on the nose here -- Good concept, worthless writing, direction, and execution. Also: Mid-90s techno dance music in a "horror" movie -- Just... no. Oh, dear sweet Jesus Christ... noooooooooooooooo.

  • The theme is GUILT. Sam Neil isn’t a Devil worshipper. He is driven mad by the guilt of his wife committing suicide while he was too busy working on creating the ship. Every person on the ship has to face their guilt. 90’s, yes, entertaining, yes.

  • Mike says he’s a big space nerd but that’s not a “space nail gun”, it’s an accurate prop representing torsion free drill, which is how you do work like that in space, so everything he’s ever said or done is now null and void.

  • I agree with this review almost 100%. Saw it in the theater and was awfully let down. Waste of a great cast. I remember thinking it’s one of those films that can’t make up its mind what it wants to be. Tonal confusion. Vague writing, too, esp. re. What the “other dimension” actually is. Hell? Some weird dimension that just makes you nuts? The realm of some Lovecraftian “old ones” type deal? It was just inconsistent.

  • I actually think Event Horizon is great and I saw it a few years ago, I’m 26 and I’ve definitely had friends in their 30s and 40s look back at this film fondly. it is cheesy in places for sure but I think the set pieces, the set design and the mash of hell and space horror really works for me. I would’ve loved to have seen that extended cut with the gory parts of the film intact.

  • People make a lot of comparisons to other films but Event Horizon is 100% a horror schlock remake of Solaris. Rather than the entity bringing back people for mysterious and complex reasons, possibly as a self defense mechanism or means of communication, it's just space hell and it manifests whatever makes you feel guilty. Weir and Kelvin even have a similar backstory. Edit: also, Event Horizon is pretty goofy at times but I still love it. I saw it fairly young though so maybe the nostalgia factor is a thing.

  • I saw it for the first time as an adult, and it's still one of my favourite sci-fi horror movies. I agree it has plenty of weaknesses, but it is original in its premise and it has been influential on videogames and RPGs that came after. I would also want to see a remake.

  • First of all The Prodigy are great, probably wouldn't have used them for a horror movie, especially in the credits, but that song Funky Shit is incredible, just my opinion of course. Honestly Mike outright rejecting the premise from the get go is kinda annoying, like I think the visuals were dated, cheesy camera close ups/general film making, is stuff I 100% agree with. But to me why not have a The Shining in space? The whole trying to go faster then the speed of light, but ending up in some hell type dimension is kinda cool imo, I wished they would have gone in the direction of a Lovecraftian super alien race or whatever, instead of indicating that it be the Christian hell. But honestly if this was given to a more competent director it could be a great movie.

  • I watched it as a kid/teenager but I still think its great now. Best horror scifi since Alien tbh. And Funky Shit by the The Prodigy is an awesome choice of ending track.

"Dark Side of the Moon (1990)" Same basic concept, and I swear they literally had an "80s cliches" checklist and outright refused to miss a single goddamn one, it's stupid, hilarious, and fantastic, I love it.

  • If you want a better "huanted house in space" movie, and you don't mind it being an anime, I highly recommend the movie "memories" the first short film titled "magnetic rose" is quite possibly one of the best science fiction films I've ever seen. Great story with Breathtaking animation and music.

  • This review is really bad. Their whole theory that Sam Neil's character had been on the Event Horizon clearly shows that they don't even understand what was clearly going on. Sam Neil's character blames his wife's suicide on himself, because he spent all of his time designing the ship instead of trying to be a husband. The malevolent force that's haunting the Event Horizon plays on people's fears and guilt and anguish, so it exploits his feelings about his wife to fuck with him. EDIT: Okay, it's not REALLY BAD. These guys are still pretty fun to watch.

  • Not to be that guy but they WOULD have needed explosives to separate the two parts of the spaceship, because without any friction to act on the warp drive stage, if they just separated it like a train it would keep moving at the same velocity as the ship and wouldn't move away, unless they wanted to burn fuel accelerating away from it, which is costly. Not that many explosives though!

  • Couldn't agree with Jay more! The first half is great. It has building menace, atmosphere and tension, but then completely blows it with Sam Neils character suddenly turning into a pantomime villian. Such a disappointment.

  • I remember watching Event Horizon as a young boy and the scary stuff that stuck out the most to me was the eye gore. For whatever reason, any gore in movies that involves eyes (Sam Neill with his eyes stapled shut, the slideshow scene in Red Dragon, etc.) really gets a visceral reaction from me, so that was what really stuck in my memory. All the other awful shit I mostly forgot. I remember cooper flying through space and it was just as funny then as it is now lol.

  • I always confuse this with “Sphere” despite seeing neither. They came out within a year of each other and I think the trailers may have been similar. I wonder if people have fond memories of Sphere and not Event Horizon or if they’ve mishmashed them in their minds. I remember seeing Sphere on TV a lot (and still never watched it), but I can’t imagine Event Horizon getting much TV air time on cable. Too much would have to be cut.

  • You all got so many of the small details wrong about this movie. It's not hard to see why you failed to see the appeal it has to many people. Also, that cut away to the Resident Evil clip is 100% accurate and relevant to Resident Evil cannon. You can think it's stupid or weird, but it's accurate.

  • I agree with Jay, this is a great candidate for a remake. The concept is interesting, mashing sci-fi with religious concepts, this whole "Hell is real" thing has been successfully done before, like Doom and the whole Warhammer 40K universe, etc. The basic premise is solid, where Event Horizon failed was the execution, mostly Anderson's terrible direction. Some scenes were comically bad, and if your audience is laughing at your horror movie, you are doing it wrong (unless you are Peter Jackson or Sam Raimi). If this was remade with a good director and better visuals, it would be great.
