I searched seven continents and as many seas for this edit. I saw it over ten years ago and had it and lost it. I felt that it was the definitive version of Event Horizon. I couldn't believe how hard it was to find this. The copy I finally got was definitely not as pristine as Nick had originally produced but it's integrity was still intact. I would do a cartwheel for a DVD or better copy.

This a prime example of what creative editing and vision can produce. It's a much better horrific experience watching this edit. I felt like I was watching someone's nightmare...in outer space. Even though I had seen it many years ago, I was still at the edge of my seat, even though the sound quality had diminished somewhat due to the quality of the edit, I jumped several times. There are several very disturbing cut scenes that were added purely for shock value. I was compelled to stop, rewind and watch again in slow motion. The imagery that he has created with these seamless insertions is very ambitious and effective. They messed with my head.

I have to say...a mediocre space thriller has been genuinely transformed into a very disturbing frightening horror movie that actually deserves the multiple parallelisms to Hellraiser. Very well done! Highly recommended, This edit is second to my anticipated reaction to Night of Samhain for scares this fright season.

i was always a big fan of event horizon,
so when i saw this fanedit i had to see it.
im glad i did it was awesome the whole movie felt new there was so much work that went in to this.
i love all the added scenes and the new ending was so good, this fanedit deleted all the cheese and made it a solid scary horror movie.
this is a highly recommended fanedit to any scifi horror fan or just any horror fan in general.
i watched the avi and the PQ was pretty bad i recommend getting the dvd as you will always watch this version over the original.

i highly recommend this fanedit.

You know, I've always really liked Event Horizon. It scared the crap out of me the first time I saw it, and I think it's still one of the best in the limited "space horror" genre. So I was really excited to experience the movie in a different way, and I'm happy to report that Mollo did not disappoint. The mood in this version is a lot more serious, with much of the worst character "dialogue" removed (I'm looking at you, Cooper!). The flip side of this is that some of the characters don't make nearly as much of an impression, but I'm going to say that it was still a good move as they're not constantly wrecking the tone with their foolishness. The demonic angle is amped up in this version as well, to great effect. With so much cutting and re-arranging of scenes, some of the original's slow-burn sense of dread is lost, but the added demonic flourishes and adjusted music compensate for that enough to bring everything back into balance. I thought all the integrated footage from other movies worked swimmingly, especially the extra audio elements. The new ending, too, was IMO a smashing success, very artfully done and disturbing. There were a few rough edges, editing-wise, but nothing so glaring that I was taken out of the film, and (while still watchable) I wouldn't necessarily recommend the SD AVI file as it's just too compressed for a film this dark.

A grim overhaul of a muddled SciFi / Horror film. Mollo pulls this out of tech and into fire and blackness, heightening the horror elements with relish.

Audio/Video Quality - The DVD is not available. Not that I am complaining. This is one of those edits I waited and waited for. Literally. One particular file refused to download and I waited over two weeks, until one afternoon when it started going. For newcomers, patience does bear rewards.

The avi image is a little soft and is undoubtedly superior on the DVD version. The audio is muffled at times and I suspect is not better on the larger DVD.

Video - 640p, MPEG-4. Well done throughout, in an ambitious edit. Numerous alterations are unnoticed. The additional scenes were worked in nicely.

Audio - 2-channel, MP3 128kbps. Man, this is where the edit really shines. This is an outstanding soundscape Mollo has crafted. Do not overlook the extras! The “Evil Sounds” bonus is a clinic on relayering audio channels. Aspiring editors would be well advised to study this.

Narrative - Coherence gets lost in this. Of course the film was always a jumble. Dr. Weir seems even odder from the get-go and his usefulness onboard is negligible. An asteroid (from Deep Impact) sweeps past in the beginning for no real reason, though it is in the alternative ending bonus. At the end, Capt Miller sends Lt. Starck to the command deck for intel, and she ... it is not explained. This turns into a flat out horror film with many stray threads and unanswered questions. That is not a problem, a lot of mysteries have no solutions, but there seem to be an awful lot in this edit. The pacing also feels rushed, very much so past the midway point.

Enjoyment - Appreciate would be a better word. I recognize and admire much of what Mollo did here. It does feel like a horror film, which was his intention, though not a particularly intelligent one. He removed much of the stupid factor, which is commendable, yet many of the characters are reduced to sketches. I never cared about them, so I never cared what happened to them. Tough luck, kids, I thought.

On one hand, the outro music, the last taste one gets from any film, was incongruous, intrusive and irritating.
On the other hand, the bonus features, redeemed quite a bit for me. Seeing how much Mollo had done, just with one brief scene, had me recognize and applaud the work he did with this. Adding those bonus features in a folder along with the feature .avi is genuinely considerate.

Good edit, worth viewing. Based on other reviews, tracking down the DVD is recommended.

I just watched your edit. Very nice. I remember hating this movie when it came out. Now it was actually something that I could watch again. Really creepy, too.

My biggest concern, though, was that I didn’t know how I was supposed to feel in this movie. And I wasn’t sure what message the film was trying to send. Was I supposed to be rooting for the characters (who all die)? Was it a realization of karma (which really only affects the two central characters)? Since both Weir and Peters get it in the end, I’m guessing it’s about how their actions have damned themselves and their crew to horrible fates, however, this didn’t really sit well with me. I guess I wanted a little more redemption in the movie (though maybe that’s not something a fanedit could accomplish).
