    I'm finally watching Event Horizon movie...

    ... since you guys keep comparing it to SS2. Better late then never. Wow, everyone is so young like Morpheus! :P

    I can't even remember how long it was since I saw it.

    Crappy flick! I was expecting more from EH to be like SS2.

    The setting is somewhat similar to SS2. The story, not so much.

    Hence, my disappointment.

    Story is more Silent Hill than System Shock, other than the FTL bits.

    I'd say it's heavily inspired by Warhammer 40K.

    That's a bit silly -- you can't call a film crappy on the basis that it wasn't what you mistakenly thought it was going to be. I think you're actually disappointed that someone implied that EH and SS2 were similar. Personally I was disappointed with Event Horizon as well, so I won't argue that it's a great film; but SS2 has no bearing on that.

    They rather overdid it with the weird pointless jump scares.

    Yep. The film starts out feeling like sci-fi, but then abandons the sci-fi for vague horror tropes. It was a waste of a strong cast and good FX budget. They should have been able to make something smarter with the black hole premise.
