** Played utterly and completely straight with the ''Lewis and Clark's'' ion-drive acceleration. While an ion drive is a very efficient way to move around large distances, they produce minimal acceleration (you're basically using individual atoms as reaction mass to propel a ship billions of times more massive). Their advantages are excellent fuel economy and continuous acceleration, their disadvantages are extremely low changes in velocity and direction over a given period of time. So there's no way an ion drive firing would generate any appreciable g-force, let alone enough to liquify a person.

* DownerEnding: [[spoiler: Let's face it - only three members of the crew survived, the fourth (Miller) was sent to hyperspace, where he'll suffer a FateWorseThanDeath (though he may have been caught in his own explosion, which would be a mercy), and it's heavily implied that the survivors will have nightmares for sometime to come -- and, that is... if the "liferaft" lets them live free to tell tales and didn't just use them as bait. Justin, for one, actually ''did'' get pulled into the "somewhere else": thinking he came out with anything like a whole mind (or entirely himself, even) is wishful. Shoving him in suspended animation stopped him dying from decompression damage, but it didn't fix ''that''. Even more horrifying the implication, that the evil in the ship is still present, so people will highly unlikely return to Earth...]]

* AmbiguousSituation: The very ending of the film. [[spoiler:The meaning of the door closing behind the character is unknown: it might mean that the chunk of the ship they are in has retained her evil conscience and thus the cycle is gonna start again, or maybe it only symbolizes the wordless trauma they have lived and that they will never get over from it, as told by Starck's uninterrupted screaming at the end.]]

* PsychologicalTormentZone: The ''Event Horizon'' acts as this in general. She/it/whatever makes your standard, everyday {{Troll}} look positively tame. It seems to exploit past grief and guilt: Miller's guilt over his crewman's death, Peters's guilt over her son, Weir's guilt over his wife.

** While no human being has yet seen a black hole up close, but we can be pretty sure that, should that ever happen, we wouldn't be able to stick our finger in one, pull out some black hole goo, get sucked in, and then thrown out again.

No definitive trace of human life is found; inconclusive sensor readings lead the ''Lewis and Clark''[='=]s crew to enter the ''Event Horizon'' to search for survivors. Things start to go very wrong very quickly, it appears that someone--or some''thing''--is toying with them. Strange noises echo throughout the ship, sensors indicate the presence of life forms even though the vessel is clearly deserted, and what few records the ''Lewis and Clark's'' team recover hint that [[GoneHorriblyWrong something went terribly wrong]]... and that's just the beginning. Before long, the question is no longer what became of the ''Event Horizon,'' but what has the ''Event Horizon'' ''become?''

* KnifeNut: After told about Weir's madness, D.J. features a badass moment when he starts picking up surgical knifes and muttering that he will take care of him. Sadly, he doesn't have chance of use them.



* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane:
** Weir's first few nightmares would seem to be mundane since he is not yet on the ship, but they also appear to be prophetic, suggesting perhaps a greater range of influence for the ship than we might first suspect. Or his grief and guilt are so strong, it's the first natural thing for the ship to latch on to and exploit.
** The ship also seems to exploit past grief and guilt: Miller's guilt over his crewman's death, Peters's guilt over her son, Weir's guilt over his wife.
