Two spacemen (aliens for all we know) are woken up early from their deep-space sleep, to find that their ship is dark and deserted, and that they have the shakes, which in space are called Pandorum. One of the space guys, Bower, decides to crawl through a dark and cramped ventilation shaft (which is always a good idea) in an effort to unlock the door they're trapped behind from the other side, but he never quite gets the job done. Why, you might ask? Because of... Pandorum!

|This is a space waterfall. They actually exist.|
This movie is bloody, action-packed and tense, not to mention gorgeous on Blu-ray. I also have a weakness for Horror flicks set in space. Something about the quiet desolation of it all is really effective to me. I also have a weak spot for Dennis Quaid, who usually stars in some lackluster movies, but whom I always like anyway. Here, he does his job admirably along with his cast mates, most noticeably Ben Foster, and I actually liked all of their characters. That's a rarity for me.
|Ben Foster is way underrated.|
|Oh how cute, it wants to play.|
|Dennis Quaid's stares are gory in their own way.|
Dennis Quaid is a little wonky. Always has been. Also, Germany turns out some pretty hot chicks.
|I told you, he's got Pandorum!|
Pandorum is available now on Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD.
Friederike Kempter that stole my heart, though she was in very little of the movie? Also, Antje Traue isn't so bad either.
