Event Horizon Gets A Remastered Blu-Ray Release

Spread the word!

It takes a lot for a Blu-Ray box to stand out from others these days. While a well-known name might have a significant impact on this, the box still needs to be strong enough to draw in someone’s attention. However, there are few titles that manage to pull this off. The new Hellraiser release may do just that.

In anticipation of its release on Blu-ray, Scream Factory has released some new images of the box and cover art. While it includes a few nods to the sci-fi horror classic’s plot, what draws in the eye is the overall color scheme. In keeping with the black and white to allude to the film’s space setting, the box allows for the other colors to pop off.

For example, the blood and flames added to several sections of the map jump out and bounce off of each other much better than if there were a lot of additional colors. Event Horizon fans should also notice a few other nods and hints to the movie’s overall story, as well as its major plot points.

It should also be enough of a high-quality Blu-Ray cover that it might draw in new viewers. The film follows the crew of the titular space ship, which vanished seven years before the events of the movie starts. However, a signal convinces a rescue team lead by Laurence Fishburne to be sent to look for the ship.

While the ship is inevitably found, there’s a whole lot more horror than they anticipated. Since being released several decades ago, Event Horizon has achieved critical and commercial success. At this point, it’s gone from cult classic to iconic horror film, thanks to many of the subversive plot points and techniques used throughout its run. A unique blend of horror and sci-fi further accentuates the point.
