A Video Review of "Event Horizon"

Copyright 2003 Glenn Walker

Event Horizon is a good example of the mixed genre movie. Much like Outland was a science fiction version of the western classic High Noon, this film is just the same old haunted ship story set in outer space.

Sam Neill and Lawrence Fishburne lead a rescue team on board the Event Horizon, a deep space prototype ship that has reappeared after seven years to find out what happened. Supernatural spookiness ensues.

Admittedly there are a lot of cool special effects but it is after all nothing we haven't seen before. There is nothing here we haven't seen before in, say, The Haunting or Poltergeist. It's a good rental if you've got money to blow and time to waste. Nothing special but nothing offensive either.
