Twenty-five years ago, director Paul W. S. Anderson followed up his video game adaptation Mortal Kombat with an R-rated hard sci-fi scary movie. Starring Sam Neill after Jurassic Park and Laurence Fishburne before The Matrix, this cosmic horror was rushed to release in order to fill a Paramount slot in theaters vacated by James Cameron’s Titanic after the latter film ran overtime in production. While Cameron’s movie about a lost ship would go on to a December release that saw it win 11 Oscars and become the highest-grossing film of all time, Anderson’s search-and-rescue thriller was a commercial and critical failure. While it gained traction on home video and eventually became a cult classic, the studio torched cut footage ruling out the chance of us ever seeing a director’s cut release of what was originally a much scarier, much weirder, and much gorier film. But you don’t need eyes to hear us talk about Event Horizon - this is Legends of Halloween!
