    OT, but how's the bass on this DVD. The VHS tape that I rented awhile ago had awesome bass.

    It's a good transfer, though. The movie is freeeeeeeeeaky. This is one movie I have to sleep with the nightlight on afterwards.

    I thought I read online somewhere during the RESIDENT EVIL media blitz that the director stated that an EVENT HORIZON SE was doubtful. Bummed me out because I was waiting in hopes of a SE and am still thinking of buying it because it is one of my rentals whenever I add something new to my HT.

    Probably the best non-anamorphic transfer I've ever seen.

    To be honest, it didn't suprise me to hear that a SE wasn't in the works. Despite the fact that I too enjoyed this creepy sci-fi flick, it bombed horribly at the box office and Paramount problably feels that another version wouldn't sell at all. Speaking of the great bass factor, imagine if Paramount where to re-release this title down the road with a dts track, damn!! [​IMG] Wishful thinking I know.

    The R2 is Anamorphic if you have a Multi-region player

    Freaky movie, loved it. There is a scene in the movie for a split-second that is especially unsettling. It is barely there, but when paused correctly, plain freakish!
