    Event Horizon is one of my all time favourite movies; it's unfairly dismissed as an Alien & Hellraiser love child but it's so much more than that - there aren't too many movies that go all-in the way this did. Unlike most B-grade slasher flicks this had a real cast with decent characterisations making sensible moves all the way.

    The most intriguing part is 40 mins or so of horror got sliced because of scared test audiences, what exactly was in there is one of the great unknowns of cinema (for me at least).

    That first 30mins is so horrible to watch. Then the rest of the movie happens and it all makes sense. Such a great film

    Event Horizon is pretty good in a b-movie kind of way...

    To me it's virtually unique

    Even today only a few sci fi horror IPs exist

    Salo or 120 Days of Sodom.

    You were right.

    Was it banned or was it kept it out from the original cut because there was enough shocking bits already in the movie ? do have a doco on the making of it so should watch it to see, I have noticed there are actually two versions of the spider walk, one where she chases the mother and Kitty Wynn when she comes down the stairs and the other where she comes down the stairs then vomits up blood.

    Audition - a 1998 Japanese film about a widowed film industry executive who sets up fake auditions to find a new piece of fluff.

    Takes an hour to get warm but if you don't like the idea of acupuncture needles getting poked into eyeballs, this movie is best avoided.
