EVENT HORIZON / Golar Productions, Impact Pictures - 1997

Welp, here we go with Thanksgiving Week at The Dungeon. Today, I gots a tasty feast for your eyes from the year 2047, when a group of astronauts are sent to investigate and salvage parts of the lost star ship, the Event Horizon. The ship had disappeared mysteriously seven years earlier on its maiden voyage, but, with its unsuspected return there are even more questions about the mystery as the crew of the Lewis and Clark ship discover the real truth behind its disappearance and something even more terrifying... Boo-Wah!!

The flick stars Laurence Fishburne, Sam Neill and Kathleen Quinlan and caused quite a buzz when it was released, being compared to a host of other productions, and, the movie bombed at the box office.

Here are the crew of the star ship, Lewis and Clark, as they head out on their deadly voyage into the void, They are sealed in liquid to prevent themselves from being crushed by the extreme gravity forces.

In deep space, everything is just fine with the crew as they talk about their mission...

Finally, they find the Event Horizon and close in on the mystery ship, time to get inside and see what the Hell happened to the crew!

Upon boarding the Event Horizon, the crew finds evidence of a massacre! As they search for any survivors, the ship's gravity drive automatically activates and one of the crew members is briefly pulled into a portal. When pulled out, he's in a catatonic state and seems to be terrified by whatever he saw there. The activation of the gravity drive causes a shock wave that damages the Lewis and Clark, forcing the entire crew to board the Event Horizon!

Then, things start getting weird... Err, I mean, Extra Weird!! Just see for yourself...

Hallucinations and nightmares take over the minds of the crew members!

It's deduced that the ship's gravity drive opened a gateway into a dimension outside the known universe and that this Hellish dimension turned the Event Horizon into a Devilish being that torments occupants and lures them back to Hell!

So, have a Happy Thanksgiving! Be thankful that you didn't take a trip on the... EVENT HORIZON!! Come back Wednesday as I'm sure Eegah!! will have a tasty treat for us, til then...

This was a good example of why there was no good sci fi in the 1990s.
All of it degenerated into slasher movies. Friday the 13th or Event Horizon, there was no difference. They spent more on fake blood than on writers.

Thanks for the post.

"Event Horizon" - That title is really limp!

Thanks for checking in guys, love it - Yeah, I guess they didn't want to give it away with that title!

Wonder what a better title might be, like maybe, THE HELL MACHINE... or, HELL IN SPACE... Last one for fun, HELL-O EVER'BLOODY!
