Event Horizon Review
Written by: Danny Smith
this is one of the scariest sci-fi i have ever seen. period. its a cross between andromeda and silent hill thats the only way to describe, i mean ''a ship thats been to hell and back''?. you cant get more evil than that.
the characters are slightly cliche' but sam neils character was just nuts, hes a sci-fi hannibal lecter. cool, calculated and nuts.
this is a sci-fi flick so obviously the special effects have to be good....uxcept red dwarf thats the only exception. but its basic sci-fi space ship stuff ,allthough the horror elements are where the special effects truly shine. the machine at the core surrounded by a moat of blood was insane.
the dirceting in this makes use of common phbias in uncommon locations such as being trapped in a small space and coping with the death of a son or wife.
all in all this is scary but its a rental not a ''buy'' id rather get a zombie flick myself. but for those in need of a quick fix ,look it up it aint bad and youll definatly enjoy it.
