Axelle Carolyn on

Event Horizon

Released 1997
Distributor Paramount Pictures

Director  Paul W. S. Anderson’s Alien-flavored sci-fi film had a troubled production history and an even harder time with the critics and the box office once it was released. Once again home video came to a film’s rescue turning Anderson’s dilemma in Anderson’s “I told you so”. Sleekly produced, the movie boasted a nifty cast including  Laurence Fishburne, Sam Neill and Kathleen Quinlan. Orbital contributes a pulsating techno-punk score.
