Space Hulk

So, over the weekend, while flipping through my hundreds of cable channels that never seem to have anything on that I want to watch, I happened across one of my favorite bad horror/sci-fi films, Event Horizon.  Re-watching this oft-overlooked classic, I was reminded how much it owed to Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 universe, particularly to their Space Hulk game.  A huge starship, lost in the warp for years, suddenly returns.  Who knows where it's been, or what might be on it?

I see that Fantasy Flight Games has released a Space Hulk style adventure for their Deathwatch RPG.  I may need to see if my local game store has a copy.  Giant haunted space dungeons.  What's not to love?

It really makes me want to play some Star Wars RPG, or Rogue Trader.
