Twenty-five years ago Event Horizon hit theaters and people left the theater somewhat confused about the whole thing. Critics seemed to want to love it but ultimately felt it devolved into a gory, cliched ego project for Paul Anderson.
Thankfully, the film has regained some rep points as a cult classic and fans have embraced it as a masterful sci-fi adventure. Collectors and fans can rejoice because it’s finally getting a limited edition SteelBook release.
Infinite space delivers infinite terror in the horror cult classic Event Horizon, celebrating its 25th anniversary with a new, Limited-Edition 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray SteelBook on August 9, 2022, from Paramount Home Entertainment.
Directed by Paul Anderson (Resident Evil), Event Horizon originally debuted in theaters on August 15, 1997, and has developed a large cult following over the ensuing 25 years. Known for its elaborate production design and unsettling visuals, the film features an exceptional ensemble cast, including Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix), Sam Neill (Jurassic World: Dominion), Kathleen Quinlan (Breakdown), Joely Richardson (“Nip/Tuck”), and Jason Isaacs (“Star Trek: Discovery”).
