Paul and Erin review two films about supernatural goings-on aboard understaffed space stations. First: SOLARIS, Andrei Tarkovsky's cerebral 1972 sci-fi classic about a cosmonaut scientist who encounters a simulacrum of his dead wife while in orbit around a sentient planet; then, EVENT HORIZON, Paul W.S. Anderson's 1997 sci-fi/horror film about a team of astronauts who answer a distress call from a remote starship, only to discover that the ship is empty and possibly possessed by a malevolent force from Hell itself. Drinking liquid oxygen or gouging your eyes out with your bare hands: which will prevail?
Plus our quick takes on CINDERELLA, TV's HANNIBAL, THE KINGDOM OF DREAMS AND MADNESS, THE LAST FIVE YEARS, IT FOLLOWS, and ELECTRIC BOOGALOO: THE WIND, UNTOLD STORY OF CANNON FILMS.
