I rewatched Event Horizon for the first time since around the time of its original release. I remember when I saw it as a kid (I perhaps would have been about 9 or 10 at the time) how it really frightened me and successfully gave me nightmares. I was a odd ball of a kid though. Horror films are what got me into films in the first place. As a kid (despite receiving nightmares later that evening) I would still continue to watch horror films all of the time. Event Horizon has stuck with me since then, because of its horror and because of its extremely original (so I thought at the time) story. Having rewatched it, I still say the script is very original in the aspect of mixing religious horror (opening the gates of hell) into a sci fi world aboard a space ship. However I could not deny the similarities with Sam Neil and his wife's character to that of Solaris and also how the ship feeds off of your thoughts like in Tarkovsky's Solaris. But that is where the similarities end as Solaris is not a horror film although I could see where it could be argued as one. Event Horizon also contains very predictable moments and cliched characters and cheesy dialogue. Still very much a Paul W.S. Anderson flick. Haha. But I still rate this one fairly high at a 7/10 because of the horror aspect being done so well, and the mixing of the genres (Sci Fi and Horror) was done almost to perfection. So final verdict after all of these years, a good horror film but not good enough to be on my top horror list.
