Just as sci-fi fans are already often claiming 2007's Sunshine as a personal fave, flaws be damned, many of us horror types have fallen back on 1997's Event Horizon as a guilty pleasure at the very least, if not something a bit more solid. Mind you, we're talking about what is arguably Paul W.S. Anderson's best directorial effort to date, so 'good for what it is' is about as apt a descriptor as I can think of.

At any rate, the eponymous ship has returned from its lengthy departure to parts unknown, and our rescue crew -- including Laurence Fishburne and Sam Neill, as the engineer who created the ship's black-hole-opening device -- soon discovers that remnants of its detour to a hellish alternate dimension remained on board.
