Set init follows a crew of astronauts sent on a rescue mission after a missing spaceship, the Event George Benson - Benson Burnerspontaneously appears in orbit around Neptune. Searching the ship for signs of life, the rescue crew learns that the Event Horizon was a test bed for an experimental engine that opened a rift in the space time continuum and left our universe entirely, allowing a malevolent entity to possess the ship.
The film had a troubled production history, with filming and editing rushed by Paramount when it became clear that Titanic would not meet its projected release date. The original minute cut of the film was heavily edited by demand of the studio, to the consternation of director Paul W. Even so, it began to sell well on home video ; its initial DVD release sold so well that Paramount contacted Anderson shortly after its release to begin working on a restoration of the deleted footage.
In the years since, the film has slowly built a cult following and is often referenced and parodied in other works of popular culture. Ina distress signal is received from the Event Horizona starship that disappeared during its maiden voyage to Proxima Centauri seven years previously that has mysteriously reappeared in a decaying orbit around Neptune. The rescue vessel Lewis and Clark is dispatched. William Weir, who designed the Event Horizon.
He briefs the crew on the ship's experimental gravity drivewhich generates an artificial black hole and uses it to bridge two points in spacetimereducing travel time over astronomical distances. The distress signal seems to consist of a series of screams and howls but D. Upon boarding the Event Horizonthe crew finds evidence of a massacre. As they search for survivors, the ship's gravity drive activates, briefly pulling Justin into the resulting portal and causing a shock wave that damages the Lewis and Clarkforcing the entire crew to board the Event Horizon.

The team begins to experience apparitions of individuals from their past that only they can see,  hallucinations corresponding to their fears and regrets: Miller sees Corrick, a subordinate he was forced to abandon to his death, Peters sees her son with his legs covered in bloody lesions and Weir sees an eyeless vision of his Count Bass D - Begborrowsteel wife, who committed suicide, urging him to join her.
The crew soon discover a video log of the Event Horizon ' s crew going insane and mutilating each other shortly after first engaging the gravity drive. The video log ends with a shot of the Event Horizon ' s captain speaking the complete Latin phrase from the earlier distress call, which D.
Deducing that the ship's gravity drive opened a gateway to a hellish dimension outside the known universeand that the Event Horizon has somehow attained sentienceMiller decides to destroy the Event Horizon and orders an evacuation. Peters is lured to her death by a hallucination of her son.
Weir, who has gouged his own eyes out and is now possessed by the evil presence, uses an explosive device to destroy the Lewis and Clark. The explosion kills Smith and blasts Cooper off into space. Weir kills D. Miller confronts Weir, who overpowers him and initiates a minute countdown until the Event Horizon will return to the other dimension. Cooper, having used his space suit's oxygen supply to propel himself back to the ship, appears at the bridge window.
Weir shoots at him and is blown into space by the ensuing decompression. Miller, Starck, and Cooper survive The Event Horizon - Michael Kamen & Orbital - Event Horizon (Selections From The Motion Picture Soun manage to seal off the ship's bridge. With their own ship destroyed, Miller plans to split the Event Horizon in two The Event Horizon - Michael Kamen & Orbital - Event Horizon (Selections From The Motion Picture Soun use the forward section of the ship as a lifeboat.
He is attacked by manifestations of Corrick and a resurrected Weir. Miller fights them off and detonates the explosives, sacrificing himself.
The gravity drive activates, pulling the ship's stern section into a black hole. Starck and Cooper enter stasis, beside a comatose Justin, and wait to be rescued.
Seventy-two days later, the wreckage Event Horizon is boarded by a rescue party, who discover the remaining crew still in stasis. Starck sees Weir posing as one of the rescuers and screams in terror; this is revealed to be a nightmare with Starck waking up moments later. However, as Cooper and the rescue team comfort the newly-awakened and terrified Starck, the doors unexpectedly close.
Anderson was inundated with screenplay offers, as well as the opportunity to direct the Mortal Kombat sequel Mortal Kombat: Annihilation and the upcoming X-Men Anderson had in mind a "classic haunted house movie", incorporating significant influences to moderately successful horror films such as Robert Wise 's The Haunting and Kubrick 's The Shining because they enforce suspense from the unknown, meaning the ghost or creature was hidden from the viewer, and The Event Horizon - Michael Kamen & Orbital - Event Horizon (Selections From The Motion Picture Soun endings induced ambiguities of perception in the audience.
As Anderson explains, directors usually have a standard week editing period to produce the first cut of a film, as guaranteed by the Directors Guild of America. However, due to the short production schedule of the film, the rapidly approaching release date, and the fact that principal photography had not yet finished, Anderson agreed with the Paramount studio to an editing period of six weeks and promised to deliver the film by Augustas Paramount wanted to have a hit film before Titanic's planned September release date.
When the main unit wrapped, Anderson was supposed to start editing the film, but he still had to shoot two weeks with the second uniteffectively shortening the time he could spend in post-production to just four weeks.
In that short amount of time, only a rough cut of the film could be assembled. Anderson notes that at two hours and 10 minutes, it was overly long, with weak directing and acting that could have used another editing pass, unfinished special effects, and a poor sound mix. In test screeningsthe cut was poorly received. There were complaints about the extreme amount of gore,  and Anderson and producer Jeremy Bolt claim members of the test audience fainted during the screening.
Anderson believes that while his first cut was justifiably considered too long, Paramount forced him to make a cut that was instead too short, and that the film would benefit by the restoration of Funky n Groove (Club Mix) - Stefano Fontana - Funky n Groove 10 American Pie - Various - Untitled of footage, including some of the deleted gore.
After the initial DVD release became a surprise hit, the studio and Anderson became interested in assembling a director's cutbut they quickly discovered that the excised footage had not been carefully stored and much of it had gone missing.
The plan to assemble a director's cut was abandoned and instead a special-edition two-DVD set was released, featuring one deleted scene, two extended scenes, and a few shots of deleted material in the included making-of featurette.
The footage is of " video " quality. The "bloody orgy" video was also longer. As Anderson was sometimes too busy filming other scenes, second-unit director Vadim Jean filmed some parts of this scene. The film's final ending was a combination of two unused alternate endings that were filmed. One did not have a jump scare at the end when the last two survivors are found by another The Event Horizon - Michael Kamen & Orbital - Event Horizon (Selections From The Motion Picture Soun crew and Starck hallucinates that she sees Weir, although there was a similar version of the scene included in this ending where she hears screams of Event Repabhan Street Repabhan Strasse - Riz Ortolani And Nino Oliviero - Mondo Cane crew and screams in fear before Cooper wakes her up.
This was the original ending of the film included in the shooting script. He responded "never", explaining that much of it is gone forever. Anderson said that after finishing Resident Evil: Retributionhe planned to watch it for the first time since assembling the film. Asked about the VHS tape, he said neither he, Homenaje A Mexico - El Gran Combo - Internacional El 15to Aniversario De El Gran Combo De Puerto Ric Levin, had watched it yet, as Levin moved to Spain; however, he was still excited about watching it at some point.
Michael Kamen was hired to compose the score for the film. Director Paul W. Andersona fan of hybrid genre music, invited the electronic dance music duo Orbital to collaborate with Kamen and to provide synthesizing sounds for the film's unsettling atmosphere. A The Event Horizon - Michael Kamen & Orbital - Event Horizon (Selections From The Motion Picture Soun album was released which edited various cues from the score into four tracks of approximately ten minutes.
Roger Ebert gave the film 2 stars out of 4, stating, "The script creates a sense of foreboding and afterboding, but no actual boding. Have a loved one beat on it vigorously with a wrench for minutes. Same difference, and think of the gas you'll save". The film had some early supporters, with So Lonely - Various - Dance Mania 2002 magazine awarding Event Horizon a 3 out of 5 stars rating, reporting: "That the film never fulfils its promise is down to its over reliance on horror vagaries in a precision-built sci-fi milieu, ultimately leaving too many unanswered queries.
A sharper script and a more credible solution could have turned this impressive hokum into a force to be reckoned with". There are certainly plenty of jumps on offer as a possessed ship torments and tortures any humans it can find. Well worth a look. In Augustit was reported that Paramount Television and Amazon Studios were developing a television series based on Event Horizon. Horror filmmaker Adam Wingard is set to executive produce the series and possibly direct the series.
