During an archaeological expedition on Bouvetøya Island in Antarctica, a team of archaeologists and other scientists find themselves caught up in a battle between the two legends. Soon, the team realize that only one species can win.
In the year 2047 a group of astronauts are sent to investigate and salvage the long lost starship "Event Horizon". The ship disappeared mysteriously 7 years before on its maiden voyage and with its return comes even more mystery as the crew of the "Lewis and Clark" discover the real truth behind its disappearance and something even more terrifying.

Andrew Kevin Walker wrote an uncredited draft of the script. Some of it ended up on screen, and one sequence was cut from the theatrical cut, where captain Miller (Laurence Fishburne), upon entering the Event Horizon, finds a ripped-out tooth floating around. Other scenes appear as storyboards on the Special Collector's Edition, when Miller's crew is introduced for the first time on another rescue mission. On the DVD documentaries and commentaries, director Paul W.S. Anderson said he regretted having to delete these scenes, but they didn't help the film's pacing. See more »
The Lewis and Clarke crew enters stasis on the way to Neptune, made necessary because of the "30 Gs of acceleration" they will endure for the trip. When they arrive at Neptune, however, there are coffee cups and other debris on the tabletop, loose chairs, etc., in the same position as they were before the trip. This is not consistent with sudden and severe acceleration. See more »
The opening credits are sucked into a black hole. The screen viewpoint pans upward, above, and over the regular Paramount mountain before the opening credits, which usually remains stationary and then fades out. See more »

Its not the best film I've seen yet this was the best experience I've had in a cinema. After getting lost & sh*t scared driving around dark English country lanes I arrived at the cinema already in quite a state. And from the moment I heard the rocking Orbital opening track I was transfixed. I was in the perfect mood to watch this film and it delivered more than I could have hoped in a cinema experience. After repeated home viewings it does lose its shock factor yet it is still a great film, though I have to add it really was meant for the big screen. The sets are great, the gore is shocking & the ship design is truly beautiful. Admittedly the Event Horizon borrowed its look from '2001' yet they took that long majestic shape & gave it a more modern gritty feel. A few bits of ham acting (listen to when Richardson says "the hulls been breached") didn't detract from this excellent Hellraiser Vs 2001 style flic. Watch it with the lights off and the sound up.
10/10 for the Cinema experience.
8.5/10 as a complete film
