Event Horizon (1997) - Episode 75

Update: 2021-12-01


Where we’re going, we won’t need eyes to see! It’s off to the ionosphere surrounding Neptune for us, as we board the Lewis and Clark to salvage the wreckage of Paul W.S. Anderson’s 1997 Gothic space nightmare Event Horizon

After a mysterious 7-year disappearance, the titular imposing, experimental, wormhole-navigating interstellar craft has reappeared, sending the ship’s creator Dr. Weir (a reliably livewire Sam Neill) off on the recovery mission alongside stoic shuttle Captain Miller (Laurence Fishburn) and an assorted Anglo-American crew including such lauded thesps as Jason Isaacs and Sean Pertwee. The ship’s mysterious gravity drive seems to hold the key to the gruesome mystery as to what happened to its original crew - and to the horrifying visions stalking the new one.

A critical and commercial misfire on release, but a sleeper hit on video, the film (and especially its infamous ‘visions of hell’ rapid-fire montages) struck a chord with many a budding gorehound, and retains a sizeable cult following to this day. Did Gali, Devlin and Matt follow Dr. Weir through the gateway, or did they want to join Miller in vapourising it from a safe distance?
