Dead Space: Downfall is one of those rather rare situations in which a piece of media made in order to capitalize on a different type of media does what it’s supposed to do pretty well. Meaning that it is meant to be a story prequel to the first Dead Space and as far as that is concerned, it works perfectly.
Horror movies set in space seem to have it made easy for themselves. The setting lends itself to inducing a sense of claustrophobia and terror since the only thing that is keeping you alive in the harshness of space is inducing the claustrophobia to begin with. Add in an unknown factor making the lights flicker, systems fail and crew members die one by one, and you have an easy recipe for horror.
