    1. Good morning SGB:

      Well done, my friend. Your identifications are all right, and you even got "Space Cases" which was pretty obscure...

    I think the Event Horizon deserves a mention here. Although it did not originate as a living vessel, it returned to Neptune "possessed" after it's voyage into "Hell". It's creator, Dr. Weir, himself possessed late in the film, explained:

    "I created the Event Horizon to reach the stars, but she’s gone much, much farther than that. She tore a hole in our universe, a gateway to another dimension. A dimension of pure chaos. Pure… evil. When she crossed over, she was just a ship. But when she came back… she was alive! Look at her, Miller. Isn’t she beautiful?"

    I find that idea particularly unsettling, and that made the Event Horizon one terrifying ship. The idea that it had itself become possessed, and could use your own fears against you, was truly frightening.

      I love Event Horizon. Great movie. Only remember the category here: cult-tv. Event Horizon is a movie, thus no mention here.

      best,
      John

    Ah, I guess that would rule it out then. I wasn't thinking about that.

    Have you ever done a review for Event Horizon? I'd love to hear your thoughts on it.
