Event Horizon (1997) Paul W. S. Anderson – WTF Happened to This Horror Movie

Last Updated on August 5, 2021


After the success of Mortal Kombat, Paul W. S. Anderson was looking to move away from the PG-13 style movie that made him famous. He wanted to explore humanity's much darker side for his next project, and so he looked to the stars. Space, according to some, it's the final frontier. But in 1997, Paul W.S. Anderson unleashed a horror film that showed that Hell was a real place that could be accessed by mankind. But with primal curiosity and the need for exploration, should it be? After production issues, a rushed schedule, and lost footage, Anderson himself seemed to have entered his own nightmare. So, let's dig into Paul W. S. Anderson's Event Horizon (WATCH IT HERE – OWN IT HERE) and find out What The F*ck Happened To This Horror Movie?

Event Horizon stars Laurence Fishburne, Sam Neill, Kathleen Quinlan, Jason Isaacs, and has the following synopsis:

A rescue crew investigates a spaceship that disappeared into a black hole and has now returned…with someone or something new on-board.

This episode of What The F*ck Happened To This Horror Movie? is written by Brian Wolford, edited and narrated by Lance Vlcek. Produced by John Fallon and Executive Produced by Berge Garabedian.

Sometimes huge hits, sometimes box office bombs. Either way, we have to ask: WTF Happened To This Horror Movie?
