Synopsis:
This turns Event Horizon from a cliché horror flick into a twisted depiction of possession and evil.
Intention:
The idea is to tell a bleak and bloody science fiction horror story using Event Horizon. The narrative has been considerably altered and I hope I have added a few more scares. I will let you judge if this works or not.
Additional Notes:
To make sure that the Single Layer DVD is of the best quality, most extra features were removed. A short called “Slashed”, which has scenes cut from Event Horizon, is available to download as a separate avi. The deleted unfinished alternative ending and “Evil Sounds”, the sound design short film are available as avi.

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.

Well done Mollo. I’m a fan of the original and this is adventurous and skilful work.

I don’t quite know how you pulled off the final 10 minutes like you did, but it works as a completely valid alternative ending in my view.

Event Horizon was never a perfect film, so neither is this, but what you’ve done with the movie is amazing.

Thanks.

A great movie elevated with a great edit.

Hated it.
The Faneditor took a great one-of-a-kind 'Hellraiser in space' and turned it into a stock-standard generic horror that ultimately cheapens the whole experience and makes no sense in the context of SCIENCE fiction.

The inclusion of extra visuals would've been fine if seasoned horror fans like myself didn't already recognise them. Overall I just found it jarring, and it took me out of the moment in every instance.
Also, trimming down the Weir's monologues and the Captain's backstory hurt this edit, along with other great sections of character dialogue that showed them as a close-knit team. What we have in their place are visions of the possessed Jennifer Carpenter from The Exorcism of Emily Rose, and in the final act even her voiceover "I am Lucifer, the devil in the flesh" which makes absolutely zero sense because it is the manifestation of a hellish and chaotic ALTERNATE DIMENSION the crew are experiencing, not any demon devil from a religious/supernatural hell.

I give credit for the hard work put in and the editing as it was mostly pretty well executed, even though I find it detrimental to the storytelling, but the video is very grainy which I'm not sure is a stylistic choice by the editor or indicative of the source they used but that's the I'm leaning as the audio seems to be inferior too, just less clean than it should be, but again that may be a choice, I just don't know.. but these things I just feel are sub-standard when compared to the original material which was of great quality, and there are also a few hard cuts that could've been smoother.

A pretty slick new view of Event Horizon. I'm not going to complain about SD quality video and sound but it should be expected. This movie plays out like an intense tale horror with all the camp and suspense kept in it.

I love this edit. It's a bit grainy visually unfortunately, but it's awesome. Feels like an episode of The Twilight Zone. Making Weir the protagonist was an inspired decision. The implimentations of other movie clips for the most part really works. It goes to show that sometimes trimming makes a better movie. There most likely will never be a DC of Event Horizon and this is most likely a better viewing experience. Extra footage of gore probably won't save the movie. This did.

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.
