Event Horizon Collector’s Edition Unboxing

In Features by Samuel Love

To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Paramount have given cult sci-fi horror Event Horizon the 4K treatment in a lavish Collector’s Edition. The doomed film was rushed to release when it to beat James Cameron’s then-delayed Titanic to the big screen, resulting in something of a botch job with Paul W.S. Anderson’s original 130-minute cut torn apart and, sadly, now lost forever. On release, Event Horizon underperformed financially and critically, but has slowly built a cult following – as is evident in this beautiful release that celebrates the film’s difficult legacy. 


This is an essential release for fans of the film. Although it is sad – albeit unsurprising, considering it is lost – that the original cut isn’t included, the 4K transfer of the theatrical cut is a revelation. This is absolutely the best Event Horizon has ever looked, and proves to be the definitive (as definitive as is possible) home release of the film. With the included art cards, poster, pin, patch, and collectible steelbook, this is a truly celebratory release that is clearly made with a genuine affection for the film, and it is lovely to see physical media still thriving in a streaming world. 

Synopsis

Seven years ago, pioneering research spacecraft “Event Horizon” mysteriously vanished without a trace on its maiden voyage. But then, in the darkness of deep space, a persistent signal prompts a rescue crew to wing its way through the galaxy on a bold rescue mission. What they uncover is an unimaginable interstellar horror that will test the entire team’s sanity and souls.
