Paul W.S. Anderson’s EVENT HORIZON
(R, 1997, 96 min)

Its name: Event Horizon. The high-tech, pioneering research spacecraft mysteriously vanished on its maiden voyage seven years earlier. But a weak, persistent signal from the long-missing craft prompts a rescue team, headed by Captain Miller (Laurence Fishburne), to wing its way through the galaxy on a bold rescue mission. Accompanying Miller is his elite crew and the lost ship’s designer (Sam Neill); their mission is to find and salvage the state-of-the-art interstellar horror.

Tobe Hooper’s LIFEFORCE
(R, 1985, 116 min)

From the director of “Poltergeist” and the writer of “Alien” comes this sci-fi horror cult classic. A mission to investigate Halley’s Comet discovers an alien spacecraft! After a deadly confrontation, the aliens travel to Earth, where their seductive leader begins to drain the lifeforce of everyone she encounters. Her victims, in turn, continue the cycle, and soon the entire planet is in mortal danger. And when the mission’s sole survivor sets out to destroy her, he comes face to face with the most horrifying being he’s ever known. Starring Patrick Stewart and Steve Railsback.
