I feel no guilt in my love for Event Horizon
, and this thread has inspired me to watch it again. It builds a great, scary atmosphere and sense of dread. The Dead Space
videogame pays great homage to it.
The original Hellraiser
is my favourite horror film, but the franchise overall really is a mess. Still, I find Bloodline
very enjoyable and it would have been a really great movie if the studio hadn't butchered it so much.
It's the last movie of the series to really try to tell an interesting Hellraiser
story, rather than just be a psychological thriller with Pinhead slapped on, until Revelations
. And that film is depressingly rushed and cheap.
