Adds a small amount of backstory for dedicated fans of the film. The writing is acceptable, but not fantastic. The novelization adds some backstory to the weeks leading up the events of the film (including the severity of Dr. Weirs initial mental state), and some small, but important details that occur in the "other" place "beyond known time and space". These details may conflict with the readers original interpretation of the film. I would only recommend this book for dedicated fans looking for the full "Event Horizon" experience.

This book takes place in a distant enough future where deep space travel is common and "wormhole" travel is cutting edge. The possibility of parallel dimensions bleeding over to ours with this kind of technology is the disturbing premise. It is basically a haunted spaceship story, with the possibility of ruining our universe with the escape of another dark dimension. As usual, the book is superior to the movie. Interestingly, the book was based on the movie not the other way around. The Horrible Place

I have been a fan of event horizon ever since seeing the film in the 90s. This novel was exactly as expected. More or less the same as the film with some added detail.Good overall

It departs little from the movie and is very well written. I haven't read any other movie novelizations, but this is good. I may be slightly biased since Event Horizon was the last movie my dad and I watched in the week before he died of lung cancer, but nevertheless this is well done.

The pages were falling apart, readable though. Had to super glue.
A novelization of a notoriously scary 90s space horror film is pretty much the last thing I would read; but I spend enough time buried in so-called "real" literature and sometimes I need to decompress a bit. McDonald can write thoughtful, solid moments that evoke the sort of lovecraftian doom of a topic like this, but the whole thing barely stands on its feet: the characterizations are almost non-existantly thin, the tone is monotonous and by the end he seems to be literally recycling paragraphs and sentences to make things sort of come to an end. It's a movie novelization, but I think he could do better if he had had more latitude and time.
