If you could create a sequel to one favorite (standalone) movie, which would it be? How would it build on the original?
Event Horizon. One of the best and most underrated science fiction + horror films out there. It absolutely rocks and is dynamite in it’s story telling. It has an awesome premise and plot and some really good actors in it. If you are unaware of the movie it’s about a crew of astronauts sent on a mission to get in touch with a starship that has reappeared suddenly after it’s disappearance 7 years ago on it’s maiden voyage. The ship had an experimental engine that opened a rift in the space time continuum.
Joining the crew is the scientist who invented the engine and when they get to the ship, the Event Horizon, they discover that the ship had opened a portal to a hell dimension and whatever got through had killed and mutilated the crew of the Event Horizon and now wants these men and women too. The characters must try and escape but the entity that has taken control of the Event Horizon won’t let them go. In the end everything from the forward section of the Event Horizon is destroyed and heads onto earth like a lifeboat carrying just three of the crew while the rest are dead and the rest of the ship is pulled back into the hell dimension by means of the black hole that was opened. However we are led to believe that all is not right as the remaining 3 are found by rescue crew from earth. Is the closing of the doors ominously mean that the evil still remains?
I dunno and it is speculated as a possible outcome. I would love to see a sequel for this 1997 movie which remains a favourite of mine. Someone please get to it.
