Event Horizon (1997) Shout Factory Blu-ray: Classic sci-fi

Shout Factory is releasing director Paul Anderson’s intelligent sci-fi shocker, Event Horizon (1997) on a collector’s edition Blu-ray. Stars Laurence Fishburne, Sam Neill.

Its name: Event Horizon. The high-tech, pioneering research spacecraft mysteriously vanished without a trace on its maiden voyage seven years ago. But a weak, persistent signal from the long-missing craft prompts a rescue team, headed by the intrepid Captain Miller (Laurence Fishburne), to wing its way through the galaxy on a bold rescue mission. Accompanying Miller is his elite crew and the lost ship’s designer (Sam Neill). What they uncover is unimaginable interstellar horror.

Fishburne, Sam Neill, Joely Richardson and Sean Pertwee bring some class to the determinedly B-movie dialogue, and Anderson delivers some eye-poppingly nasty sequences that will please horror fans.

[It] doesn’t just borrow from fine antecedents, it takes their future shock value to new heights, using genuinely original FX and creep camerawork to great effect.
