Event Horizon (1997)
A rescue crew is tasked with investigating the mysterious reappearance of a spaceship that had been lost for seven years.
Hellraiser in space. Did I make that up, or was that like a critic's quote used to promote the movie? I don't remember, but it fits.
Actually, lets call it Solaris, but stuff actually happens.
Or how about Sunshine, before Sunshine was a thing.
Whatever you want to call it, this is (yet another) movie I watched young (in the theaters in fact), which then got to live rent-free in my imagination for awhile. That is always the hallmark of a good horror movie.
Three years ago, entomologist Dr. Susan Tyler genetically created an insect to kill cockroaches carrying a virulent disease. Now, the insects are out to destroy their only predator, mankind.
The first appearance from our
Spanish Mexican buddy, Guillermo Del Toro.
I actually saw this one in the theaters, and I was so creeped out that night I had trouble sleeping. What's the only thing grosser than bugs? Gigantic intelligent bugs, apparently.
Re-capturing the gross, grimy New York that was so famous in movies from the 1970s and 1980s, the movie succeeds in making the viewer deeply unsettled and uncomfortable throughout. Which is a rousing success in my book.
Deep Rising (1998)
A group of heavily armed hijackers board a luxury ocean liner in the South Pacific Ocean to loot it, only...
Here's a fun one, and another one I watched with my dad when it came out.
Before he was directing (decidedly uneven) summer popcorn-fare like The Mummy, Stephen Sommers gave us this B-movie classic. Treat Williams stars as the boat captain who's hired to lead a squad of mercenaries and intercept a cruise ship. Little do they know that everyone onboard is already dead...
I won't say anymore, but if that teaser interests you, and you like decidedly campy gorefests, check this one out asap.
