The suggestion of a film has been up in the air for a while, in November 2005, the Comics Journal message boards reported that Black Hole would be adapted to film by the French director Alexandre Aja (Haute Tension). In March 2006, comics news site Newsarama reported that Creator/NeilGaiman and {{Pulp Fiction}} co-writer {{Roger Avary}} would be adapting the screenplay, and in May 2006 Gaiman confirmed this in a Time magazine interview. Neil Gaiman and Roger Avary later left production with it moving to Paramount Pictures and the direction of Creator/DavidFincher. Fincher himself has abandoned the project to focus on the American remake of ''TheGirlWithTheDragonTattoo''.

* FreudWasRight: [[InvoketTrope Invoked]]. There's an abundance of sexual imagery, mostly in the form of vaginas. You could almost make a drinking game out of how many show up.

* SurrealHorror: While the overall plot makes sense, the imagery and dream sequences alone push it into this territory.
