The Event Horizon is the main antagonist of the 1997 American horror film Event Horizon.

In the year 2040, the spaceship Event Horizon disappeared after an experiment with an untested dimensional warp drive. In the year 2047, it reappeared and sent out a distress signal; as it turns out, the dimension it passed through was akin to Hell and left the ship possessed by a demonic force.

Appearance

The Event Horizon is an oddly designed ship with a large, vertically tall front half. The initial ship tapers off into a thin "tail" that ends in another large component, from which two engines emerge.

Powers and Abilities

The Event Horizon possesses the following powers and abilities:

  • Hallucination generation
  • Sentience
  • Possession

Fate

The ship's gravity drive activates, opening a wormhole that pulls the ship's back half into the "Hell" dimension. The ship's front half remains in our dimension and is implied to still be sentient.

Trivia

  • The original concept for the film involved the ship being haunted by ethereal tentacled aliens from another dimension.
