Hey there Los Angeles Fright fans! Time for another Friday Night Frights!
The “Sam Neill Madness Trilogy” continues at Friday Night Frights! Last time we journeyed to Hobb’s End in In the Mouth of Madness with producer Sandy King on hand for an amazing Q&A. This Friday we’re going to cross into Event Horizon, a movie that seems to gain more traction with horror fans with every year.
Friday June 21th @ midnight.
Quoth the FNF power blurb:
In space, no one can hear Sam Neill scream! Amongst a somewhat uneven period for filmic horror (the late-’90s), one titanic thrillride still stands outlandishly tall, in a knee-deep puddle of viscera: 1997’s Event Horizon, the Hellraiser-meets-Alien mashup. A strong turn from schlockmeister Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil), the film catapults the simple haunted house concept into, space and executes it arguably more effectively than most space opera horror films, including some of the later Alien sequels. Featuring an interstellar cast led by sinister and increasingly insane science officer Sam Neill (are you seeing a pattern here?), Event Horizon concerns a mysteriously returned starship, and a dimensional rift which may or may not be a doorway to Hell. The images Anderson conjures are truly frightening, and as Sam & Co. unravel under the ship’s malevolence, the zero-G gore flies free in some of the most warp-driven setpieces of the decade. Reserve your seat now on this space-ride to terror you won’t soon forget; there’s horror on the Horizon!
