Scream Factory releasing a new Collector’s Edition of Event Horizon

June 8th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Can it be?! Can we finally be close to a fully restored version of the classic haunted spaceship movie, Event Horizon?

Well… maybe. We live in hope.

Scream Factory have announced (below) that they are bringing Paul W.S. Anderson’s 1997 space horror flick Event Horizon out on Collector’s Edition Blu-ray this Fall – check out the very cool new artwork above.

“New extras are in progress and will be announced on a later date,” they wrote on Facebook.

“We can confirm today that we are doing a new 4K scan of the film! As for any much-inquired-about additional footage (in addition to what’s be presented on prior releases), we are looking into it as best we can. We welcome any leads you may have alongside our efforts.”

Event Horizon has a much fabled Director’s Cut that featured footage now lost that featured a full cut of what happened to the crew of the Event Horizon in the movie – previously only seen in gruesome cut scenes in the movie – as well as some additional plot points.

The movie was a failure on release but over the years had acquired a significant following on DVD and Blu-ray, so should Scream Factory manage to acquire the footage and, by mentioning it we believe they have SOMETHING, then this will sell, as they say, like hotcakes.

So the hope is still there… what say you all? Would this be on your much-watch list? Let me know in all the usual ways, gang.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
