Event Horizon

1997, Paramount Pictures et al

This cheap Alien knock-off was doomed from the start, when a struggle between the director and the studio ensued over the editing when it was slashed from 130 down to 96 minutes. Although it bombed at the box office, it has since earned a cult following; but while I'm no stranger to cult films, this one really leaves me scratching my head. The only thing that makes this space turd barely watchable is the ever-entertaining Laurence Fishburne, who manages to turn lemons into lemonade. And the effects aren't half-bad, just sort of like lipstick on a pig.
