Event Horizon

It starts out well but ends up a mess! A group of astronauts travel into space to see what happened with a previous trip. They find out that the ship has been effected by "something" which makes the crew have strange hallucinations and think irrationally. Maybe the movie wouldn't have been so terrible if it didn't suddenly switch from an intriguing sci-fi flick to a terrible slasher/gore flick. It also has a serious problem with character development and with the actors used, this shouldn't have been much of a problem. "Event Horizon" proves that Hollywood is running out of good ideas.
