So I was sitting here thinking about a couple of Sci-Fi horror movies I really enjoyed "Event Horizon" and "Pandorum" wondering if there are any other movies like them around. I know all about the Aliens ones of course but the thing about being trapped on a ship in the middle of nowhere with no help is entertaining to me.

My top movie still has to be "Aliens" even tho the comapany sent out a big F off spaceship loading with all kinds of toys and for some odd reason just 12 colonial marines or so on it. Could have been a little cooler with a few more marines I think.

So I leave it to you all to add your Sci-Fi horror movies that you enjoy (or just really good Sci-Fi action/thriller/horror movies. I dont class super crap B movies as entertaining and would enjoy to watch a few more movies like the above.

Thanks in advance

Well the last sci-fi horror movie I watched was "Sunshine".
I thought it was pretty decent.
But I'm a terrible judge of horror, half the time I'm laughing and mentally play a game of Clue with the characters.

The Thing (1982)

Best horror movie ever.

BTW, few people know that this is actually a remake from the pretty good The Thing from Another World (1951)

There's a prequel coming out this year, no idea if it'll be any good.

The Phantom Menace, it was pretty scary to see how Lucas had gone from making trailblazing sci-fi to gimmicky slapstick soap.

Thanks everyone keep them coming, more of the space themed ones would be cool.

I'm also a really big fan of the Warhammer 40k story line and would love it if they did a Sci-Fi horror about say an imperial guard ship going through the warp and having guests invite themselfs aboard (deamons). If only hollywood threw a ton of money behind those story lines and had an awesome director like Ridley Scott or the guy that did the Event Horizon movie, now that could be great.

I wouldn't call Aliens a horror movie, Alien is the horror movie. Aliens is a action movie with Xenomorphs in it.

True Aliens is not a horror movie, almost the same lines as the Evil Dead movies went from horror-horror/comedy-comedy/horror but more so the action it went towards.

It would be cool tho if more movies of this type were out there. I should write Hollywood about it so they stop making horrible vampire movies for little girls and start making real movies again.

Oh the Crites Laughing

The series is pretty good for a B-SciFi series.

as Grimpak mentioned Event Horizon is a great movie, but I woudl call it a SciFi thriller more then horror, but I guess one could consider those one in the same.

Aliens wasn't really a horror movie, I think the original Alien took the cake for best horror movies in that series.

Alien, Pandorum, Event Horizon, Pitch Black, Screamers are the ones I remember so must be good.

For lulz I would throw on phantom menace since my face was like this since it was a horror of a different sort:

You should try Plan 9 from Outer Space. That is the definitely Sci Fi Horror, and whats more once you have seen it, you will never judge another movie as bad.

Slasher movies or genuine horror movies?

I hate slasher flicks, and any pointlessly violent movie.

Saturn 3 is an old one, but pretty horrific.

Another one i love is The Black Hole... not hardcore horror, but it sure has its dark moments!

I liked Species, not really a horror though Razz

There is one sequal of the Hellraiser series set in space (4th i believe?), i loved that. I think all Hellraiser movies are bordering on sci fi anyway.

But yeah. Saturn 3 and TBH from me.

And if you like B movies, check out the Over-sexed rug suckers from mars!

Might not be a horror movie, but HAL in 2001: A space odyssey makes me uneasy as hell.

Hmmm I might say I find the movies posted here extremely americanized.

You need to watch

LInterieur <---- Mostly for the inner joke of the director at making mainstream american horror cliches obnoxious
<if you enjoy french cinema you can learn to appreciate the subtle hidden puns>

Martyrs <----- An extremely interesting movie relating to the eternal french dilemma of freedom and the pursuit of it <regardless of the outcome> or if you just want to enjoy a good sadist movie, I'd reccomend it if you just want to watch brutalization of women in video. <tho its much more than that, totally love the new batch of french horror makers>

Altered States , not exactly horror, but good interesting soul searching amidst the chaos.

If you like Japanese movies, please watch this masterpiece Tetsuo the Iron Man , I watched it with some female friends and they for strange reasons enjoyed the anal drilling part <yep>.

Though not for everybody Nekromantik is a lovely german love story between a man and ... a corpse.

Moving on now to some old American classy underground acts, I wholeheartedly recommend BEGOTTEN, it's simply a movie to be watched in seriousness due to the oddness and sheer graphical nature, also for the obscurity of it.

Hope this small list works for you.

PD: As a bonus, I want to add one of the only masterpieces I own in HD , the Italian Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom.

Can't speak for the other ones, but └ l'intÚrieur (Inside) and Martyrs are not sci-fi but they are seriously horror.
└ l'intÚrieur is one of my all-time favourite horror movies 9/10.
Martyrs is an attempt to make the ultimate horror movie. It was so successful I won't watch it again. Not much of a sadist, but I did give it an 8/10.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) with Leonard Nimoy and Donald Sutherland.
Even though it was a remake, not only did it achieve horror without blood and gore and fancy special effects but was also a very political-critical movie.

Yeah I know they not Sci-Fi, but I'm currently away from sci fi stuff, so wanted to derail a bit while trying to keep in touch with the spirit of horror.

If you enjoyed those movies I'd reccomend another couple of french movies THEM and HAUTE TENSION , them is mostly about the reality of how fragile life can be and it can be a bit slow, the people in the US tried to make a remake of it of sorts with some altered plot and HAUTE TENSION well, is a sheer glorious HOMAGE to the GRINDHOUSE genre of the 70's.

The fact they are french makes everything feel familiar yet distant. Unfortunately Hollywood for the past years has tried to stick to the Blockbuster line of thinking and the Horror movie for Summer theme for the past 20 years. They have failed to sate my incessant craving of seeing people screaming for their lives to make my own life a bit better <horror movies relax me, I live in a horror movie most of the day in latinamerica anyway>

Also to try to keep in line , there's a truckload of very very good Sci-Fi movies from the 70s and 80s made in USA that if you can look past the cheesy FX will sate some Sci Fi craving:


Hangar 18



Also check Contamination, Saturn 3 <man I loved Farrah Fawcett back in the day when I was a kid>, Scanners <up to this day I still would love to make people's head explode by sheer willpower> and Videodrome.

Honestly, everything Hollywood spouts this day is Flashy Clothes, CGI galore and tons of Light FX, I'm not 15 anymore :/ we need more solid adult oriented hardcore films that explore forbidden, taboo areas of the human mind, even SEED was tame, though interesting proposal <If one can say anything good about an Uwe Boll movie I found the Hammering scene of the old lady, a step in the right direction that simply sidetracked and ended up being a cheap sadist **** movie, it was Uwe Boll anyway, cant ask much from him>

Horror needs to go beyond mutilated corpses and flying entrails and disemboweling cow innards <The 70's were good tho, I still miss Dario Argento and Fulci's movies>.

That's why I give my hopes to the Europeans/Asians, they trying to break the mold, sometimes they fail miserably, but sometimes, man they bring out good stuff.

This is a westernized horror sci fi ish movie from an original Japanese one I still find worthy of a rerun on a weekend with friends, PULSE.

Also a nice british action/horror movie THE DESCENT , enjoyable :) <skip part 2, it was an awful thing and honestly, it doesnt exist for me>

Yeah, all Hollywood makes these days is pretty much goodlooking brainless trash.
Some of those movies you mentioned I watched or are on my to see list and I'll definitely check out the rest.
Luckily, there's still South Korea for good (non-sci-fi) horror movies like Oldboy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Lady Vengeance and Black House (2007 remake).
Oh, and let's not forget the beautiful Spanish The Machinist.

Vaguely sci-fi, I thought The Blob (1988 remake) was pretty good and touched a nerve. A big fan of Screamers as well.
