- Miller: Weir? Dr. Weir: [laughing] The ship brought me back. I told you she won't let me leave - she won't let anyone leave. Did you really think you could destroy this ship? She's defied space and time. She's been to a place you couldn't possibly imagine. And now... it is time to go back. Miller: [sounding bored] I know. To hell. Dr. Weir: You know nothing. Hell is only a word. The reality is much, much worse.
Dr. Weir: You can't leave. She won't let you.
D.J.: I wasn't going to tell you this. I've been listening to the distress signal, and I, um, think I made a mistake in the translation. [Plays the distress signal] Miller: Go on. D.J.: I thought it said "liberate me" - "save me." But it's not "me." It's "liberate tutame" - "save yourself." And it gets worse. [Plays the distress signal again] D.J.: There - I think that says "ex inferis." "Save yourself... from hell." Look, if what Doctor Weir tells us is true, this ship has been beyond the boundaries of our universe, of known scientific reality. Who knows where it's been, what it's seen. Or what it's brought back with it. Miller: From hell.
Miller: Oh. My. God. What happened to your eyes? Dr. Weir: Where we're going, we won't need eyes to see. Miller: What are you talking about? Dr. Weir: 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? Miller: Your "beautiful" ship killed its crew, Doctor. Dr. Weir: Well... now she has another crew. Now she has us.
Miller: Smitty have you seen... anything unusual at all? Smith: No, I haven't seen anything and I don't need to see anything sir but I can tell you... this ship is fucked. Dr. Weir: Well, thank you for that scientific analysis, Mr Smith. [smirks] Smith: Yeah, well you don't exactly have to be a scientist to figure it out, do ya? [grabs Dr. Weir by his uniform] Miller: [pulls Smith away] All right, all right! Smith: You break all the laws of physics and you seriously think there wouldn't be a price? You went and killed the last fucking crew, and now you wanna kill us as well!
- The space suits worn by the actors weighed 65 pounds (30 kilograms) each. Laurence Fishburne nicknamed his "Doris."
The Event Horizon was modeled on Notre Dame cathedral. Its interior is filled with cruciform shapes.
The model of the Event Horizon includes a complete "X-Wing" from Star Wars as part of an antenna array. The model is visible on the lower portion of the Event Horizon during the first flyby by the Lewis & Clark.
Director Paul W.S. Anderson was forced to cut over 20 minutes of violent scenes so the film could reach the R-rating.
When the Lewis and Clark first docks with the Event Horizon, the number of the main airlock is briefly visible: 13.
