The Month of Horror Day 7: Event Horizon

Basement contributor Matt Bellamy has taken it upon himself to watch and review at least one horror movie a day for the month of October . . . because he's awesome that way! To celebrate The Month of Horror's first week, Bellamy takes a one-way express elevator to hell. Going down!

In space, everyone can hear you scream, especially Satan. This is one creepy sci-fi horror flick that really manages to get under your skin as it follows a group of scientists and astronauts answering a distress signal from a ship believed to have vanished without a trace many years before, and of course, it has returned with something else on board. Cue ominous music! So where did the ship and all of its crew disappear to? Well see, it opened up a portal into hell, yes, THE hell and everyone was tortured and murdered until Satan decided to send the ship back and lure in some more lucky individuals ie: the characters we end up following! Sam Neill, or as I like to call him, "Dr. Alan Grant", becomes obsessed with the portal, ends up being driven insane, essentially turns into the dark lord, and kills lots of people, eventually throwing down with Morpeheus himself. There is some seriously disturbing stuff in this movie, and it's definitely one to watch with the lights off!

  1. One of my all time favorites! Great visuals, pacing and effects. The images really do stick with you after the movie is over.
