Event Horizon (1997) - Paul W.S. Anderson

So I guess this is one of the last good movies by Paul W.S. Anderson, well this and Resident Evil are about all I can stomach of his. The first part of the movie is amazingly mysterious and scary. It has a feel to it that makes you believe that this is going to be a scary f'ng movie. Then the second half kicks in with this "Hellraiser in Space" feel to it, and it kind of lets you down. The movie doesn't let me down enough to say that it doesn't scare me, which it does. However the end seems really thrown together and rushed.
A ship, the Event Horizon, has resurfaced after a long period of time with a completely slaughtered crew and a bunch of creepies all over the thing. A rescue crew is hauled in with a scientist that built their Hyper Gravitron or whatever to find out what happened to the crew and where the ship has been. Spooks and Scares ensue.
This movie was made in 1997 and you can see that the budget was pretty good, yet the CGI wasn't fully developed …
