[[MindScrew Okay, a little more explaining...]]



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?''

''Event Horizon'' is a CosmicHorrorStory, basically [[Creator/HPLovecraft Lovecraft]] [-[[RecycledINSPACE IN SPACE!]]-] Or as some like to call it, a ''very'' disturbing prequel to the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' series.

series.[[note]]Specifically, one set in the backstory of the setting in a period known as "the Dark Age of Technology", a time which humanity first encountered the Warp. Whatever dimension that the ''Event Horizon'' traveled through seems similar in nature to the Warp, and there are many telltale signs of corruption by Chaos.[[/note]]



* DecoyProtagonist: The opening scenes might incline you to believe that Weir is the protagonist, [[spoiler:but by the end, it's clearly Miller.]]
** Played with even further in that by the end [[spoiler: [[SanitySlippage Weir has become the]] ''[[DemonicPossession villain.]]'']]

* 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 is the implication that the evil in the ship is still present, so it's highly unlikely people will be returning to Earth... or if they do, they may be bringing whatever evil infected the ship with them.]]

* FreezeFrameBonus: Towards the end, Weir [[MindRape shows]] Miller gruesome visions of [[spoiler: what is presumably a hell dimension, in which his crewmates are [[BodyHorror horrifically mutilated]].]] These visions consist of very quick shots that are hard to see unless you pause at just the right moment.

* UltimateEvil: The dimension that the ''Event Horizon'' crossed into, which has been equated to Hell itself (both in universe and in real life). Just a few minutes within was enough to drive one character to the brink of suicide, while the ''Event Horizon'''s original crew went insane and slaughtered one another during the initial voyage.

** The movie never quite works out which pseudophysics handwave it intends to use for the ship's FTL capability; the description given by Weir suggests the ship works by warp drive; his demonstrated metaphor works more like a wormhole; however, the events that actually transpire suggest it was some kind of hyperdrive.

Weir talks about how the drive uses focused gravitons, implying that it uses the immense gravity of the black hole in the core to bend space.

* HumanoidAbomination: [[spoiler: Implied with Weir post resurrection. He gains a VoiceOfTheLegion in some parts and is covered with ritualistic scars, hinting that it's the ship using his form to confront Miller.]]

* {{Jerkass}}: Dr. Weir has his moments.
* 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.
