Today is October 19th

Today’s film is 2009’s Pandorum

With Life, Alien and Aliens under our belt this year it’s time for one more #SpaceHorror film. Pandorum takes the ‘monster pursues crew on ship’ formula of our first three films and adds a good amount of mystery/thriller aspects. It’s also significantly darker than the other films. The result is something that feels like it belongs more in the horror genre than the space genre.

Alien was inspiration for many other works, not the list of which were video games like Metroid. Pandorum on the other hand feels inspired by horror games. The plot, setting and ascetics look like they came straight from an awesome survival horror video game. It’s easy to watch and think of characters as NPCs, mobs and bosses. The plot even seems to be structured around levels and side quests. Am I crazy or did anyone else feel this way?
