From what I've read, all the scenes that were cut were basically gore porn. Encroaching on NC17 rating. Such as what what's his face sees when he gets sucked into the portal. And more scenes with the dead wife, etc etc.

They should of at least kept the cut footage.

The movie studio even requested it for a recut as the DVD sales were on fire and they were making money off of it. But the footage mysteriously vanished. If they would have kept it and re-released the "NC 17" or "Directors Cut" version or whatever they would have cashed out even harder.

I remember reading an interview with the director saying that multiple test audiences couldn't finish watching the original cut of the film it was so gory/horrifying. I could be mistaken it's been quite a few years since reading that.

Just re-watched it and Pandorum over the last couple of days. Event Horizon is definitely superior, but Pandorum was a pretty interesting premise that wasn't fleshed out at all.

Either way, not a bad couple of evenings.

Rewatched this yesterday.

It has held up really well. Somehow the movie lends itself to that.

I am fascinated by the mythos of the Devil and demons/hell in general. So any movie that has the devil in it or demons from hell is always interesting for me. In this context, the black hole/otherwordly dimension produces the evil entity that wreaks havoc.

This movie captured the dread of the torment that befell the crew, with each individual haunted by their own version of "hell" which is very interesting. There are other movies that attempt to portray the Devil and demons etc in different ways, such as Constantine (Vormeer was incredible as the Devil), Al Pacino's version in the Devils Advocate and The Witch, that showed a more nebulous version. I wish someone would make a solid devil movie that touched on more biblical mythos shit and had some epic fights between angels and hellspawn etc.

Christian Mythology is pretty awesome, honestly. You have weird betrayals, descriptions of incredibly lascivious acts, and some hardcore angel-warrior fighting porn. It's pretty berserk.
I really wanted to check out that White Wolf "Demon: The Fallen" game system just because it seemed to dive deep into that mythos. Really wish more "gaming" folk were interested in that kind of stuff vs. just larpers who like to wear black and listen to Bauhaus.

Ive seen Dogma. Its a good flick but its a little too "goofy" for me. It is incredibly intense sometimes and takes itself serious most of the time, but the comedy spirit kind of turns me off.

I would so get behind a movie in this branch of horror/science fiction. I feel like every time I watch a movie that tries to pull from these elements, the directors or "someone" has toned it down a bunch in order to not piss of the WASP community or something similar.

Legion maybe? There was the movie and then the short lived TV show.

Also all of the Prophecy movies. The further you go in the series the more B-movie they get (introducing people like Eric Roberts!) but also more heaven vs. hell (or heaven) they get. But the original with Viggo and Walken was pretty fucking good.
