Event Horizon Breakdown | Ending Explained, Easter Eggs, Hidden Details & Things You Missed. After picking up the 4k blu ray and revisiting Event Horizon for this breakdown, I found a lot of incredible details and hidden things in it that seeped into my subconscious on a first watch, and this really elevated the movie far beyond the appreciation that I had for it originally. In this video, we deep dive into the film. This is a full breakdown of all the creepy hidden details and things you might have missed when watching it.

/* ---- VIDEO INFORMATION ---- */
Welcome to the Heavy Spoilers show I'm your host Paul and this video we're breaking down the classic movie Event Horizon. Callisto Protocol and The Dead Space Remake has got me fiending for some survival horror in space so I thought I'd revisit the movie that inspired them both.
Though the film was a critical and commercial flop at the time it's gained a massive following and I think that's because it's something that pretty much burrowed into the brains of every kid who watched it. Back in 1997 this was my first real experience of something that pushed the limits of body horror this much and I think it had the same effect on a lot of people. We're all grown up now and this movie has probably gained a cult following due to it scaring us as kids in a way that left a lasting impression.
Director Paul WS Anderson ended up working with Kurt Russell on the movie Soldier immediately after this and naturally he felt down about the film underperforming.
However Russell said:
“Forget about what this movie’s doing now. In 15 years’ time, this is going to be the movie you’re glad you made.”
And I'm glad he made it too.
Throughout this video we're gonna be going through all the creepy details and things within it that really elevate the movie and hopefully this helps you to appreciate it even more. Now when researching films like this I try and track down the origins for them and see what laid the seeds for the ideas we see on screen.
Screenwriter Philip Eisner appeared on the Overhated Movies Podcast and he said that he came up with the idea for the film when watching The Shining. The Stanley Kubrick Classic is one of my favourite films of all time and incase you haven't seen it it centres around a family put in charge of looking after a haunted hotel for the winter. Due to poor weather conditions there's no escape and Eisner said that he very much wanted to do a haunted house movie in space.

@TheKain202 Yıl önce
That's not how it works. Theory does not mean what you think. In scientific discourse, in order for something to be called a "theory" it must first be proven through repeated testing and experimentation. In laymen terms - "Law" is a perceivable phenomenon( think "what goes up, must come down"), while "Theory" is the explanation of said phenomenon(Theory of Gravity). When laymen say theory, what they actually mean is "hypothesis", which is a proposed explanation for a phenomenon that has yet to be proven.

It also strongly resembles all the things the warp (a parrellel hell like dimension needed for space travel to simplify it) is said to do to humans unless they use special techonology to ward against the influence. there is also a mention in the lore that first attempts to do warp travel without the mentioned shields had gone more or less just like that and lead to the galler field technology then being developed and actually working 100% of the time till (as things in 40k do) all went to shits
@Azhalan 3 aylar önce
Philip Eisner, who wrote Event Horizon, said in several interviews that Warhammer 40k certainly had a big influence on him. So it's not an official 40k movie but the story was inspired by it. For some reason people still claim it has nothing to do with 40k or that it actually is a 40k movie 🤷‍♂️

@dartigens10 22 gün önce
The screenwriter - Paul Eisner - is a 40k fan and was at the time. Which is notable because 40k didn't have anywhere near the following it does now at the time. I've seen some claims that there was an attempt to make it official but the producers weren't able to come to a deal with Games Workshop, but without anything to back it up, whereas Paul Eisner has said many times that he was a huge 40k fan and active player while writing the script.
Was lucky enough to see this at a screening, pre-release, so no trailers zero clue what it was about except it was a space horror. It blew me away, particularly the incredible set design of the ship which is really a character all itself. And when Larry Fishburn drops the immortal line “We’re leaving” there was an audible cheer in the theatre and an instant classic was born.
@herbderbler1585 4 aylar önce
YES. Finally a protagonist in a horror movie who assesses the situation and makes the smart call. It actually makes the movie scarier when the cast is not just screwing themselves over with their own stupidity. They're making the smart moves and still getting screwed because the danger is legit.
@Y2Kr4SHM4N 10 aylar önce
It is suggested that when the original crew of the Event Horizonwere in Hell, they were driven to madness and ultimately turned on each other due to the extreme psychological torment they experienced. The ship's experimental gravity drive, had inadvertently opened a portal to a dimension of pure chaos and evil. This dimension, “hell," corrupted and traumatized them beyond their ability to cope. The crew's exposure to this dimension led to them experiencing their deepest fears and regrets in a visceral and relentless manner, causing them to descend into madness. As the crew began to experience these horrors, they turned on each other, unable to distinguish reality from their own personal hellscapes. The crew's behavior was driven by their individual traumas, and the pain they inflicted on each other was an attempt to either force their crewmates to confront their own fears or to distract themselves from their own unbearable torment. So, it can be said that the crew members were not intentionally torturing each other, but rather were acting out in response to the extreme psychological trauma they were experiencing. It is possible that time in the dimension of "hell" was non-linear, with events occurring simultaneously or out of order. This could have contributed to the crew's sense of disorientation and madness, as their perception of time may have been disrupted or distorted. Alternatively, it is also possible that time in the dimension was experienced as an eternal, never-ending present, with no distinction between past, present, and future. This could have added to the crew's sense of hopelessness and despair, as they may have felt trapped in an endless cycle of torment.

In case anyone didn't know. _Dead Space_ was mentioned a lot. But the gravity drive device was also directly lifted to serve in the final boss fight of _Silent Hill 4._ It's the same grinding mechanism that Eileen potentially walks into, during the timed end battle with Walter Sullivan. Anyway, thanks for the video essay. I wish Sam Neill could get more work in cosmic horror, because he really seems to love the genre. The man has a real talent for depicting madness. Pity Paramount shat the bed so hard.

One other reference along the religious lines; there is an angel type called an ophanim which is a huge eye surrounded by moving rings that also have eyes and sometimes they can be on fire. The gravity drive core is very similar to one, like it's a fallen angel version of an ophenim which again ties into the Hell aesthetic
@thethirdchimpanzee 21 gün önce

Also, much of the aesthetic is because a portion of the crew worked on Hellraiser series, so they brought in that gritty industrial hell with them. Love Kurt Russle’s grounded view of things. He knows the potential of hard work and many artists aren’t recognized until way later. Also it didn’t do well either, but Solider is one of my other favorite movies.

I remember going to watch this twice at the cinema when I was younger. I've watched it multiple times subsequently. It wasn't until a more recent viewing that I noticed something that I didn't pick up on before. After Weir is sucked out in to space, we later see him back on board the ship covered in what looks like cuts. At least I thought they were cuts, maybe caused by the ship pulling him back together. Thing is, that's not what we're seeing. What we are seeing is Weir with demonic symbols carved in to his body. I dunno how many other people noticed that, but I certainly didn't see it straight away. It's just another way this this awesome film can still surprise me after so many years.

Love movies that use the production company logos in interesting ways for the opening credits. Seeing that opening shot was my first sign I knew I would likely love this movie. Great horror movie with a great cast! Sam Neill is one of my favorite actors. 13:03 “Is that-is that…Lucious Malfoy!?” Lol. This was one of his early movie roles, wasn’t it? I think he had mostly done various tv shows before this.

Event Horizon is a great film and much underrated. It scared the shit out of me when I watched it back in the day and still sends a shiver down my spine on rewatching.

I still remember the first time I've seen this gem. In 1998 my mom and I had just moved to San Juan, Puerto Rico. Her job required her to travel to Air Force bases all across the country and US territories. But anyways we were staying in a Howard Johnson hotel and I caught this on HBO since it was 4:00 am (I hadn't adjusted to the new time zone yet) and this was the only English speaking movie I could find. It completely blew my mind, and instantly fell in love with the sci-fi/horror genre.
We saw this in the theater and to this day it haunts me. One of the most horrific movies I’ve ever seen. Hence why I naturally clicked on this video 😂

I think i was about 15 when my mate invited me around to his house when his parents were out for a weed and movie session like you do at that age. Of course it was this movie and we were a bit obsessed with demons and horror at the time so we loved it. I remember we paused it at the part where they see the torture stuff on the screen and moved it forward frame by frame to make sure we didn't miss anything. I also remember a few days later sneaking up on him in the art room at school and shouting in his ear " let me show you " while grabbing his head from behind. He screamed and almost fell off the chair and my teacher gave me lines to do at dinner time for disrupting the class. Totally worth it.

Good breakdown, & a keen eye upon a very special movie. I would like to add something that've never heard anyone reference to date. My notion has always been that the character of Dr. William Weir, but really the whole plot, is very much based on Stanislav Lem's Dr. Kris Kelvin in Solaris: A Dr. gets called to a tin can orbiting a planet, which - or "Something" - seems to be watching (you mentioned the Eye of Neptune, which, as a Gas Giant, is as close to the description of Solaris as we can get within our solar system). Our protagonist is highly capable, but riddled with guilt about his wife's suicide, whom he feels to have failed. The "Something" begins to "read" the crew & starts manifesting projections of people dear to, but lost or abandoned by the crew members, including the protagonist's wife. Every single one of them is ravaged by these encounters & their guilt that they by now had convinced themselves to have had overcome. This sudden confrontation with their obvious denial breaks them apart, as now everyone is fighting his own shadow. Unable to deal with the irrational, our Dr. does the only sensible thing: he gives in to the seemingly allmighty "Something" & accepts the consequences. This act allows him to free himself from his guilt, to be reborn. In Lem's vision, the Rebirth was a disturbing proposition. Just like it was in Event Horizon. Also, regard the names: Kris Kelvin / William Weir. I do see quite the repetition of alliteration here. Also, a "weir" is dam "that alters the flow characteristics of water". Well, so does "Kelvin".

Hey Paul, I just re-watched Donnie Darko for the first time in awhile and was wondering if you minded going over this one. It’s a favorite of mine and I’d love to hear your thoughts, theories and inside knowledge on it. I am sorry if you’ve done this already, and would gladly watch if there is an older breakdown vid

The ending, there is no IF the evil is still around. It definitely is. Before the movie fades out, the door closes by itself as the rescue crew is trying to calm a hysterical Clarck. The core body of the ship transported its blood through the glass tubes to the lifeboat part, ensuring that it becomes & stays "alive"

Came here after rewatching the movie today. I can’t believe it was filmed in 1997, effects still looking good 26 years later.
Saw this at the cinema back in the day and it blew me away, scared the pants off me. The pan out from the space station at the start is really a 3D falling effect if you see it on a big screen.
Damn that the uncut version was lost...thx for the vid.
That's a bummer about an extended/enhanced version.....I remember when this first came out, it scared the living crap out of me, and it still does today when I watch it! Great great movie, great cast and for it's time, great SFX. Thanks for the content, well done on the breakdown and criticism. Subbed.

“We’re leaving.” Best movie line EVER. The gravity drive looks like an ophanim, a spinning eye wheel (angel?) mentioned in the Bible.
I remember seeing this film, but I don't recall getting into it all that much. Maybe I'll have to revisit it again sometime to see if it WASN'T as implausibly convoluted as I remembered (though obviously and invariably meant to check all the horror and jump-scare boxes IIRC).
The most underrated sci-fi horror of all time in my humble opinion. Instant cult classic!

This is the millennial generation's Hell Raiser- which I hadn't realized until you mentioned this being the first really graphic body horror you watched. Some of the imagery reminded me of Hell Raiser when I watched it- but I had already seen lots of gory body horror by then so- it wasn't so disarming to me. In fact, it seemed a bit tame compared to Hell Raiser because the gore was very brief really, the theatrical version doesn't show much. I failed to catch all the references to other horror films based on hell and demons though. That was a cool touch, and really obvious once pointed out. I'm surprised I missed them, but I did. I did catch the eye motif though- and the coffin doorways and gothic arches and stuff. Good break down man.
Saw this in the theater with my friends. Instantly became one of my favorite horror sci-fi movies of all time. Amazing film.

This movie is a 90s classic that has stood the test of time. Happy to see you doing a video on this movie. I miss the 90s my childhood.
When Sam Neill says that he LOVED being apart of a film, you know you have a gem on your hands. Sam does alot of good movies, but he's also done some not so good movies that's obviously for the payday. And he never really praises his roles that much, but he's always spoken giddily about Event Horizon and says that he loved being in this movie.
