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.

@Rhiannon Williams oh I don't know, I think physics change once we get away from our own system. We can barely get to the moon as it is. So, how can we really say, physics stay the same throughout the cosmos. We don't really know for sure bc we physically can't be there to test the "laws of physics" from our planet to a different location in the cosmos.

@perrt Baxter Physics is the same wherever you go in the Universe! As for pyramids-its the easiest way to pile up a large number of rocks and not have them collapse under their own weight. People were no less intelligent or creative than they are now. Did they have better maths knowledge than we give them credit for? doubtless!
perrt Baxter
perrt Baxter 27 gün önce
@Rhiannon Williams wouldn't the laws of nature change throughout the cosmos? Like, our laws here are different on saturn and so on and so forth? Only thing I really know is that mathematics are what make up the cosmos, there's no such things as coincidences, only probabilities. Earth has patterns, Mars has patterns, along with countless other things throughout the cosmos. Patterns are no different than numbers. Numbers are in mathematics. Mathematics is the only language in the cosmos that can bridge barriers in language between humans across the world and with other beings throughout the cosmos. What would happen if the things we are taught about mathematics is only half of the truth of what mathematics really is. Mathematics were used to build the pyramids and anything architectural am I wrong? How did they build the pyramids, with such large blocks of rock that are too heavy to lift. Even with our advance construction equipment today, we can't replicate them verbatim like they were built thousands upon thousands of years ago with use of our "advanced" machinery. More importantly, how did they move stone hundreds of miles away that weigh over tons and tons, if such civilization didn't have our machinery to work with. What would you say if ancient civilizations were/are more advanced than we are taught to believe that they are, even more so than we are in today's society. wouldn't that mean that back then the ancient civilizations knew more about mathematics than what we are taught to believe there is?

I remember when I would watch science fiction horror at 13 or 12 this might have been new it might have been out of style since the 50s/60s because it being more mythology driven science fiction horror then slasher style that alien horror was popular for at this point in movie history when but despite all the draw backs it worked 10 fold higher than if they went with what was popular science fiction horror at the time because it stuck out not blended in

The event horizon is definitely a metaphor about death, right down to the core being a visual representation of the pineal gland. Like death, it is only hell for the crew members if they go into it with anxieties, shame, fears and regrets.

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.

Remember catching this in the cinema back in the day and loving the effects and production design. It's aged very well and is probably Paul WS Anderson's best film. It was pretty much down hill from here on. Thought the soundtrack was worth a mention though, pretty banging melding of Orbital techno/electronica with Michael Kamen's orchestral score. Very cool.

Cosmic horror at it's absolute finest. This film just hits every little check perfectly. Tone, look, feeling, music, acting. Shows you just enough to leave you deeply disturbed and allow your mind to really run wild. It also has possible the most iconic sci-fi ship ever. The Event Horizon is a freaking work of art. Beautiful ship design. I would kill to have one of the models fully lit as a ceiling display for a theater room.

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.

I always thought the "moon passing in front of a planet" thing is a reference to the Alien franchise.

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".

Ended up theater-hopping into this movie a couple weeks after it released and it became one of my all time favorite horror flicks.

19:44 When this ship is sucked into the planet it make another shape of an eye (can’t believe you missed it) as Weir is saying “do you see?” Lots & lots of eye references in this awesome movie 👌🏼👁

My mom loved to borrow VHS tapes from the movie store. She brought this movie home once and I remember seeing it when I was 6-7 years old. It has been behind my head since then... god this movie... PS The eyes on the monitor made my heart skip a beat...

Great video Paul! Been a fan of this ever since first watching it when it came out and watching it in '98. Never picked up on some of the religious symbols scattered throughout like the coffin doorways! Always found the spiked doorways to be like teeth/mouths and they're going further into the beast.

Just watched it then came back to see the breakdown, can't believe I never saw this, I'm a huge fan of horror that uses Dantes Inferno' as a base plot, my favourite of these being 'As above So Below' I would love for you to do a breakdown on that one day, Anyway great breakdown as always 💜

This movie was heavily influenced by Solaris, not the re-make with George Clooney but the Andrei Tarkovsky original which was made in 1972. It's definitely worth a watch or two. I've seen it several times.

My take on the ending was that the hatch sealing shut as the medic tells the other to go get some gear meant that the ship was still "active" and wasn't going to let the newcomers go either.

This movie absolutely terrified me. Sam Neil has been in two movies that have scared the shit out of me in my lifetime. The other being “In The Mouth of Madness”

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 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.

My brother and I bought this on ppv on satellite TV when we were in junior high when our parents were gone. It blew us away and scared the shit out of us. Probably the directors best film. Wish there was a director's cut.

This movie is one of those that freak me out. Once time I watched it several times a year as I love horror movies, but had to take a break. Like it gives me goosebumps like just imagine...if literally the black hole in space was hell....like watching. jeeezus.

I loved it the first time I saw it. Great movie. Similarly, you might want to check out the movie 'Sphere' from 1998. I thought it was similar in ways. Also under rated and probably not so well known.

this movie honestly terrified me on the psychological level. I was transfixed, fascinated and frightened out of my mind. I have no desire to ever watch it again, but I doubt I’ll ever forget it

Event Horizon is the only, and I mean ONLY, movie that has ever scared me. Probably because, like you mentioned, our generation was so young when it came out. And it was the first movie I had seen where there was just no where to go, no way to save yourself. No safe place at all. That said, I wish those more intense scenes could have made it into the uncut movie. That would have been worth a rewatch.

I remember going to see this in the cinema - the second half of the film was pretty much WTAF!!! Think I've seen it about once since! Don't think we quite realised it was a horror film when we went to see it as it was advertised as more of a sci-fi film at the time.

This movie is the one of the best horror movies of the 90s. Shit goes from zero to 100. The deaths, the gore...that scene with baby bear in space. Is that what would happen if you were in space with no suit? Unforgettable and horrifying!

Poor Gal Gadot, you mean man lol😁 As for movie I think the fact that he ends up going into to the black hole at the end made it just terrifying and yeah that idea sticks with you. Saw this at the cinema and hands down it was the best most epic space scenes I've ever seen in a movie, it gave you that epic scale of space that not many other films have ever done.

I remember staying up late at night over the summer when this film was regularly played on HBO or some other movie channel. Was terrifying as a child, especially when the crew finally cleaned up that entry on the ship's log enough to view it.

This is a good movie ! It was very slick looking when first released and still holds up reasonably well today. Most people know Sam Neill as Alan Grant from Jurassic Park, but if you are older then you will know Neill as Damien Thorn, and that he was perfectly cast for Event Horizon.

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

I saw this when I rented it from a video store (remember those?) not long after its theatrical run. I was expecting a straight sci-if, not a horror film, which I think made it even scarier for me!

Just saw this movie. I enjoyed it. The psychological horror aspect of it reminds me of The Shining 😳(edited I commented before he said the screenwriter based it off the shining 🤦🏻🤦🏻)
Blackdog Aylar önce
If I remember correctly, the drive shares a similar design to the "biblically accurate angel" designs that flooded the internet a couple months ago too. So it may very well have been based on the same idea, given how influenced by "eyes" the movies shots and set pieces were

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.
