Event Horizon 
Event Horizon.
3.5/4 stars

Event Horizon.
Essentially a hanuted house film set in space, Event Horizon sees a team of deep space rescue crew and a scientist going out to recover a lost ship called the Event Horizon. The shop was meant for faster than light travel, which broke the rules of physics, and a s aresult, the ship was lost for many years. It has returned and the afformentioned team go aboard to salvage it. But all is not as it seems...
The Event Horizon isn't just haunted, the damned things possessed. I appears the ship went beyond the confines of our reality and into Hell.
Woah, that's something.
First off, I would like to say that Laurence Fishburne's line '**** this ship!' was totally unnecessary, but hey, it probably sounded better on paper.
Anywho, I think this film is actually very original in its concept of a sentient spaceship killing the crew, which goes beyond HAL 9000, in the fact its possessed by demons!
Sam Neill and Laurnece Fishburne are perfect for their roles, especially Sam Neill whom I consider one of the best actors around.
The claustrophobic and errily dead setting create a weird sort of mood, which can be glimpse devery so often during quieter scenes and dream sequences.
I must admit, however, the film goes kind of nuts around the third act of the film...Sam Neill gets possesssed (I think), rips his eyes out, removes his genitalia and covers himself in strange marks and signs - carved into his skin. Mmmyep.
But the premise of the film is outright awesome, anyway. A sentient demon-possessed ship that travelled through Hell and is now driving its current occupants insane and killing them. Total B-Movie schlok, but done in such a way as to be unnerving and freaky. It could have done with a few more demonic appartitions, though. Not horned fiends brandishing pitch forks and flaming skull-staffs (though that concept is rather awesome), but slightly inhuman things, wrong in shape and structure, yet not totally inhuman in overall being. Subtley demoniac.

A very good film that is slighlty marred by the presence of a techno track on the credits.
Samn Neill and Laurence Fishburne, along with the rest of the cast, perform their roles very well and the ship is nicely creepy and monstrous.

I heartily reccomend you buy this film!
