Space is Scary as Fuck - A Movie List

One of my favorite subgenres of film is Space Horror, where protagonists are typically up against some frightening foe ALONG WITH ALL THE TERRIFYING STUFF NORMAL SPACE HAS, like extreme conditions, no oxygen, big rocks, etc. Since many people may not be familiar with some of the better movies in this genre and might have some free time on their hands, here’s a list of my Top Five favorites.

  1. Event Horizon (1997) - A rescue crew investigates a spaceship that disappeared into a black hole and has now returned… with someone or something new on board. Laurence Fishburne, Sam Neill.
  2. Sunshine (2007) - A team of astronauts are sent to re-ignite the dying sun 50 years into the future. Cillian Murphy, Chris Evans.
  3. Europa Report (2013) - An international crew of astronauts undertakes a privately funded mission to search for life on Jupiter’s fourth largest moon. Christian Camargo, Embeth Davidtz.
  4. Sphere* (1998) - A spaceship is discovered under three hundred years’ worth of coral growth at the bottom of the ocean. [*Not technically in space, but trust me.] Dustin Hoffman, Samuel L. Jackson.
  5. Pitch Black (2000) - A prisoner transport ship and its crew are marooned on a planet full of bloodthirsty creatures that only come out to feast at night. Vin Diesel, Radha Mitchell.

Europa Report (2013)

I believe, if you have the scent of a discovery this big, you do not simply wait and see what happens next. You go after it.
