Just watched it. I have to say, it gets my vote for scariest fucking sci-fi movie EVAR.

Who else here saw it? Whadidya think?

I thought it was kinda boring

Absolutely outstanding idea made into a half assed movie.
My thoughts.
On the whole I really liked it, but it was the premise of the movie more then the performance that sold me on it.

Awesome movie!

very bad script.....

I went to church the day after seeing it in the theater. I was a hell raising shithead at the time, if that tells you anything.

Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

I had high hopes - but thought it sucked pretty hard.

yeah, I remember when I first saw the trailer for the movie it looked like it was going to be awesome. It doesnt take much for a horror/sci-fi film to satisfy me but I thought Event Horizon was really bad.

it was freaky-deaky in places...I liked it. It had me jumping at a couple of scenes.

It was pretty good till the last part. Great idea to base a sci-fi flick on. Nothing has come close to my 1st encounter with ALIEN. What a ground-breaker!

I first saw Event Horizon when I was 13 or 14 and the damn movie freaked me out!!!!!!

I had high hopes for it as well, but then it just turned into basicly a slasher flick which I find mostly boring.


The scariest sci fi I ever saw was Alien. It scared me so much that I realised about an hour after I had left the theater that I was still clenching my fists unconsciesly.

Scary movie.

However, I find it freaky enough to capture my attention, especially when I slow mo the decrypted video sequence.

The movie really wasn't scary, it was poorly written, it dragged, there was very little suspense and what there was didn't build to proper climaxes, and the gore really got to me.

I'll never understand how people can enjoy gore for its own sake, it's a sign of a person who's never seen it in life, or have a damaged soul IMO.

Alien was a classic, can't compare the two, EH was more like a freddy krueger movie.

It sucked ass ! About as good a scifi movie as Solaris

I really liked the movie, BUT I wish it was a hard-core sci-fi and not yet another monster flick.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 10:42:25 PM EST
I felt somehow DEAD after watching that movie. I felt my soul had been ripped out of my body. A horrible feeling. Dont see this garbage movie.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 10:49:43 PM EST
It had Joely Richardson in the movie (blonde chicky snack from The Patriot) thus it was a stupendous movie.

She's got a big ol' nose and freckles and yet I have a thing for that lady.

It was an OK movie. There was about 20-30 mins of footage cut out of the film. The director has said he has no intentions of releasing an un-cut version.
Link Posted: 10/17/2004 5:13:57 AM EST
It was getting pretty good till the "dimension of evil" crap started. They could have taken it in a different direction and still ended up with a decent movie.
It was still pretty good though.

I recall it being a very boring movie.

I liked it. I bought it about a year ago and watch it from time to time. Course I also liked 'In the mouth of maddness', and we all know how well that movie did.
Link Posted: 10/17/2004 5:54:36 AM EST
Yeah, I just watched it last night. It is a great movie.

It was... BASED... on Solaris. Actually, the 1972 Soviet version, Solyaris. Which was based on a book. Which was based on a pretty fucking cool idea.

Paul Anderson (AvP, Resident Evil, Soldier, Mortal Kombat) strikes again.

Was this the movie where they were near a mining astroid, that was close to a black hole? They found an evil egg of some kind that made the people want to touch it? When they touched it they became evil and very strong?
Link Posted: 10/17/2004 6:51:15 AM EST
No.

Is the uncut version on DVD?



No such animal as an "uncut" version.

Paul Anderson has made the "directors cut" vs "stuido cut" argument on many occasions as an excuse for how poor his movies are, and every time, the studio and people who worked on the film have come out and said that no extra film exists for his movies.

Watched it in the theaters with a very loud sound system. Lots of cheap scares. Boring movie.

That had to be the scariest movie experience I've ever had.

First of all, we got to the theatre late, so the only seats were FRONT ROW. See every last gory detail.

Second, I was sitting in between two of my VERY skittish female friends. Imagine having claws digging into your arm every time someone gets cut open. It turns a visual experience into a VISCERAL one!

Prince of Darkness gets my vote for scariest movie, though
