Movies That Scarred Me For Life: Event Horizon | Movie Blog

Movies that scarred me for life is all about the movies that keep you up at night.  The horrors you just can’t seem to get out of your head.  But beyond the monsters, ghosts, slashers and aliens, there are also the cringe worthy films you wish you never saw.  Movies that made you wish you had the lost two hours of your life back.  There are tons of ways a movie can scar you for life.  This series will look at 12 of my personal favorites.

Event Horizon

I was terrified after viewing Event Horizon for the first time. I think it’s because in a way, deep down, I believe that something as evil as hell or as good as heaven could exist.  So when I think about where that ship went and what those crew members went through it makes me cringe.

It gets me thinking about the big picture.  About what’s possible.  It can be pretty scary when you think about the massive size of our universe and how, in theory, anything is possible.

Some may say I’m taking a good old fashioned horror film a bit too seriously but aren’t movies supposed to make you think?  Even horror movies set in space can carry emotional weight if you relate to it. (I feel like making a gravity joke at this point is fitting…  But I shall resist the pun.)

At the end of the day, we are all pretty tiny in the grand scheme of things and most of the time, I think about the wonderful and amazing possibilities that are out there.

It’s too bad Event Horizon exists to remind me that there could be evil as well.  When you think about what people experienced aboard that ship it makes one scene in particular absolutely horrifying.  I’m not going to discuss the scene in detail here because it happens to be the All Time Best: Scary Movie Scene.

It’s kept me up at night and creeps me out to this day.  I bought the film for $5.99 a few years ago and haven’t watched it yet.  I’m waiting for someone to watch it with me so I’m not alone.

Think I’m kidding?  I’m not.

But that’s the fun of horror movies!  That’s why they kick ass!
