What am I messing why is the movie Event Horizon so over hyped?
I've seen it and I think I understood it... am I missing something much deeper? Why is it so highly rated?
Even if it's not critically rated high, or doesn't have the highest online ratings...people absolutely love this movie.

Over hyped? It bombed at the box office and was panned by critics, including Roger Ebert. It has perhaps become a bit of a cult classic, and I think horror fans appreciate the unique premise and unusual setting for a horror movie. It was a unique twist on an old tale, namely a glimpse into Hell.

I think it's just because there aren't many horror sci-fi movies. there are a few, but they usually tend more toward dystopian, end of the world type stuff.

I've never gotten this either. It's a good science fiction film, but I wouldn't call it great, and certainly not "classic" material.
