Event Horizon is one of those space movies with such high bass levels, that if you are not careful with your volume settings, you could easily shatter a few windows in the house. The surrounds are also used to great effect when there is a creepy scene. Noises come from all around you to help add that extra level of unease for the eerie situation our on screen heroes find themselves in. There is also enough explosions and violent events to provide your Audio Video setup with a hard workout. Nice stuff.
Event Horizon is presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen. The picture is clear and sharp at all times, with the blacks of deep space rock solid. At times though there is some slight edge correction in scenes where there is complex jagged metal backgrounds. To really notice how good the picture of the actual movie is, you only need compare it with the included trailer which looks really washed out.
Other than the included theatrical trailer of Event Horizon there are no other extra’s on the disk, which is a real pity. I recall seeing on television some behind the scenes footage of how the various CGI effects in the movie was created. Surely this feature could have been included.
Even Horizon comes in a standard Amaray case. There is also a single sleeve insert with the chapter listings. As a Sci-Fi junkie I really like Event Horizon having seen it three times now already. This is good space themed horror movie with excellent visuals and sound effects. Be warned though that there are some really gruesome moments in the movie.
