I'm surprised how many forumites defend this film.


See you at High Noon pilgrim. Me and Thirty/thirty will catch you when the sun is high.

Tech's right. For once.


Don't be daft I'm always right - I'm just waiting for you guys to catch up.

The problem with Event Horizon is the premise is so good, they could have a lot more with it.

Also, the use of a Prodigy song at the end ruins what little worked.


You don't like The Prodigy either? Allright that's it.

It'll be over quick and easy. Speed of a puma doesn't just apply to my bedroom sills.

I'm bringing Sarah Jane.

Of course I like The Prodigy but it was misplaced with Event Horizon.

Event Horizon definitely isn't perfect. There are a number of irritating performances and it drags and grinds for long spells, and I suppose there is a lot of wasted potential in there. Still, it is fabulous

Ah, good, then we'll postpone the execution. I think the track is just right for the film though, I think it fits well with the Kamen/Orbital score.

Funky Shit is the closing track over the credits, not really a part of the film, but still, it fits well.

I can't believe no one thinks that track was misplaced (even though it over the end credits) - it's like 2010 having a disco number playing over it's end credits.

It has some nice design involved with the sets and lighting but the story, performances and general structure of the film are all lacking.  Much like Titanic

That would be completely out of place in Event Horizon to be honest ...

It's my second favourite track on Fat of the Land though

I know the track, but not the name. Funky Shit.

Now that alone should make the film great.

The Dead Zone is David Cronenberg's best film.

Although I did like Last Night which he is kind of associated with.

It would have been better if Tina Turner's cover of The Bitch is Back was played over the credits.
