"Event Horizon" was the third film directed by Paul W.S. Anderson after his first two films "Shopping" and "Mortal Kombat."
"Event Horizon" is set in the year 2047 and tells the story of a rescue crew that has been dispatched to retrieve the derelict space-vessle, the "Event Horizon."
After spending time aboard the ship, it's rescuers begin to have hallucinations and other various deleriums. It is later revealed in the movie that the "Event Horizon" was using an inter-deminsional travel device to go to a far corner of the universe, something went horribly wrong and the ship literally went to "hell" and the ship has become a living being bent on using it's rescuers fears to destroy them.
While Event Horizon borrows many elements from classic horror films such as "The Shining" and "Hellraiser" it's story is essentially a much darker and gorier version of Stanis³aw Lem's novel "Solaris."
Event Horizon was panned by critics when it was first released in 1997, but has been steadily gaining appreciation by both movie go-er's and critcs since then due to it's intricate camera work, special effects, and generally being ahead of it's time.
Event Horizon was Paul W.S. Anderson's best film.
