* AgentScully: Weir keeps trying to think up increasingly ridiculous explanations for the obviously supernatural goings-on aboard the ''Event Horizon'', long after everyone else accepts that something weird is going on.

** 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.

''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.[[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]]

[[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?''

* DecoyProtagonist: The opening scenes might incline you to believe that Weir is the protagonist, [[spoiler:but by the end, it's clearly Miller.]]

* 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.]]

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
