KurtM.Nov 10, 2005I don't understand the bad critics. I feel this film ist the best horror-scifi film since 2000. It's better than Alien 4 (but not better than Alien 1-3). The horror in this film is not only physical it is also psychological. The acting is good to very good. The plot is simple but absolutely OK for a horror movie. And it's also great to see that african american actors not only play roles as cannon fodder or comedic relief. I think some critics are very narrow minded and dogmatic, when they claim a horror movie should only rely on suspense and thinks you don't see". Concluding I i would say that this movie is way to underrated - you don't have to feel like me and give it a 10, but come on this film deserves at least a 8 .… Full Review »

The first 20 minutes or so are actually pretty good in setting up the mysterious mood, but after the crew enters the "Event Horizon" the movie disintegrates into a string of horror movie cliches. There is really no story at all, the crew is forgettable (except for the two leads) and plausibility and creativity fly straight out of the air-lock.
This is "haunted house" schlock in space, stay away from this stinker.… Full Review »
EricC.Dec 7, 2007This is a cult classic. Jeez. It's laughably bad, to be painfully honest. But as funny as it is, I never, ever want to see it again. Seriously, people, go watch The Thing if you want to be disturbed or the orignaly Solaris if you want your mind to be blown.… Full Review »
