Director Paul WS Anderson
Cast Sam Neill, Laurence Fishburne
When intergalactic ghost-ship the Event Horizon mysteriously reappears in orbit around Neptune, a crew is dispatched to investigate. This efficiently creepy haunted-house-in-space flick riffs on everything from ‘Solaris’ to ‘The Black Hole’.

Director Samuel Fuller
Cast Kristy McNichol, Paul Winfield
The last movie from iconic American independent filmmaker Sam Fuller (‘Shock Corridor’), this tale of a ferocious German Shepherd trained to attack black people is part animal horror movie, part savage social satire.

Director Tobe Hooper
Cast Mathilda May, Patrick Stewart
The loopiest film on our list, this hysterically off-beam tale of a nude, life-sucking vampire from outer space stalking the streets of London needs to be seen to be believed.
Watch it if you liked... ‘Doctor Who’
Director Thom Eberhardt
Cast Catherine Mary Stewart, Kelli Maroney
As funny as it is scary, this goofball sci-fi romp is the movie equivalent of a Cyndi Lauper song, following two airhead California girls who manage to survive when a comet destroys most of humanity and turns the rest into crazed zombies.
Watch it if you liked... ‘Clueless’
Director Richard Franklin
Cast Anthony Perkins, Vera Miles
Okay, so it could never live up to Hitchcock’s genre-defining original. But this sequel has plenty to recommend it. The script is sly and witty, the creaky old Bates Motel is a terrific location and Anthony Perkins is a gruesome treat as poor disturbed Norman.
