31 days of horror. day seventeen.

EVENT HORIZON (1997)

Event Horizon

Yah! So my birthday. Another run around the sun. We’ll celebrate that with Event Horizon.

The first thing I notice here is that the intro is sampled by Front Line Assembly. The sound of the computer readout. I don’t know offhand which song, but it is readily evident.

Later on when Laurence Fishburne says, “Scanning for life readings…” and, “This place is a tomb…”, those are also used as samples.

But for all its horror and soundscape merits, this movie has some really poor foley choices.

Otherwise, this movie feels big and looks big. Why can’t they make something like this today?
