Event Horizon (1997)

This fine feature film is brought to us by the director of Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil (which he also wrote), so if those aren't up your alley, you're probably SOL (sorely outta luck; sad or lonely; seriously outta line; etc...). While Event Horizon doesn't have the awesome costumes or ass-kicking stunts of either of those other video-game inspired movies, it does have an impressive amount of blood-work and a surprisingly decent 90's B-list cast (Sam Neill, Laurence Fishburne and Joely Richardson). Event Horizon is basically a horror movie (at least, more horror than sci-fi), but instead of a haunted house on some foggy hill, it's a haunted ship on the foggy side of Neptune. Talk about not being able to call for help (can't even get cell reception!)! So if you like nightmare visions, mutilated corpses, creepy children, long-lost regrets, hell dimensions, gouged out eyes, gushing blood and dripping intestines, then this is pretty much a slam-dunk. I personally prefer my films more family friendly. And with titties. Man, that will be the day.

Final Judgment; "Cosmically Horrorific"

There is nothing wrong with this film. This could be listed as the deadbeat dad of "Sunshine".
