    Obviously judging by my avatar, I am a huge Event Horizon fan! I'm not scared easily by alien movies so I was kind of iffy about watching this movie (that being said Aliens is one of my favs), but it takes the secluded aspect of space with the kind of possessed house, internal fears coming alive, hell, and puts it together to make a fantastic movie. If you haven't seen it, watch it NOW.

      Galaxy of Terror is also pretty good.
      Eww, I did not like Dante 01. Made me think Caro should only direct with Jeunet.

        I wish Doom had a shitload more Event Horizon in it.

          Mario Bava's Planet of the Vampires was a really good, atmospheric space horror. Pretty much laid all the groundwork for Alien. Some of the shots on the alien planet in Alien look like theyre taken straight from Planet of the Vampires just with a drastically muted color palette.

            I feel like the first two Alien movies are the only really noteworthy ones. Beyond that, most people rely too heavily on the concept and forget to bring the craft.

                There's just not enough space horror out there.

                2001 is probably the scariest film I've ever seen. And it doesnt even really qualify.

                    Galaxy of Terror only had a fraction of the budget of the rest of those movies so it's not fair to compare them. Besides, Event Horizon re-used some of the same plot as GoT..

                      Somewhere out there a big-budget Dead Space movie is surely being written. right...?

                      That game is really, basically, Hellraiser in Space. Even down to the giant monument that goes BNNNNNN!

                      If only John Carpenter could've directed that. In the 80's.

                        You can't really call pandorum a space horror!

                        I really loved Pitch Black if you call it a horror but the Riddick series = neato

                        Supernova wasnt' half bad uhhh Saturn 3 was decent from what I recall.

                          Just saw Planet of the Vampires. Pretty decent 50's-esque space 'horror.' Not really scary, though; coincidentally, not really vampires either.

                            So, I just read that Paul Anderson recently found a VHS copy of Event Horizon UNCUT a few months ago, but I dont think theres been any news since. Supposedly containing over 20 minutes of scary stuff (including this number: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZK1debnXYlA).

                            i'd buy that, even a VHS.
