I created the Event Horizon to reach the stars, but she's gone much, much farther than that. She tore a hole in our universe, a gateway to another dimension. A dimension of pure chaos. Pure... evil. When she crossed over, she was just a ship. But when she came back... she was alive! Look at her, Miller. Isn't she beautiful?
~ Dr. William Weir about the Event Horizon spaceship.

The Event Horizon is a spacefaring ship that was possessed by an evil entity and the main setting of the titular sci-fi horror film of the same name. It is not to be confused with the Moral Event Horizon.


Sometime in the mid-21st century, ship called the Event Horizon was designed and built by a scientist named Dr. William Weir. It was a ship that was capable of faster-than-light travel using an artificial black hole to open a portal from one part of the universe to another. On its maiden voyage, the ship was thought to be lost. But in reality, it used its faster than light engine to travel beyond the boundaries of our dimension to another dimension; one of pure chaos and evil (likely Hell itself). The crew was killed on the ship, in very horrifying ways.

In the year 2047, it returned to our galaxy, now a self-aware, living, and malevolent ship. A crew was ordered to go to Event Horizon with Dr. Weir and find out what happened, find the crew, and bring the ship back to Earth. What happened instead was the ship used its telepathic abilities to use the crews fears against them, killing them in the process. It used the form of Dr. Weir's dead wife to seduce him into assisting it.

After a fight with the rescue crew Captain, the Event Horizon was partially destroyed, sending the drive section of the ship back to the Hell dimension with Dr. Weir and the Captain, leaving only 3 survivors in the lifeboat part of the ship.



  • The circumstance of the Event Horizon is similar to the Warhammer 40k universe about what happens when a space ship enter the Warp without the Gellar Field.
  • The dimension the ship traveled to is similar to the Immaterium where Chaos Gods and demons reside.
  • The film's initial script revealed that demonic forces that take over the titular ships are tentacled alien-like creatures but eventually scrapped due to deemed too similar with that of Xenomorph infestation from Alien series.
