Corrected entry: When the crew boards Event Horizon for the first time, there is a liquid bottle floating in the foreground. We can hear the water sloshing inside the bottle. It shouldn't be possible as the lack of gravity and the centrifugal force of the bottle's rotation should make the water stick to one side of the bottle and not move.
Corrected entry: Lt Stark says that the antennae are all shot after the explosion when they first are on the Event Horizon. She says that no one is coming to get them. Then before Miller goes to arm the explosives, Miller says that they are going to send out a beacon to get help. (00:34:30 - 01:22:00)
Corrected entry: When the Lewis & Clark is approaching the Event Horizon it matches its speed, yet the two ships continue to close on each others' positions. This might mean that the two ships are travelling towards each other, instead of on the same course, but then matching speed should only take place when the Lewis & Clark is ready to connect to the Event Horizon.
Corrected entry: When the crew boards Event Horizon for the first time they say that it's in deep freeze. So the temperature must be well below zero. But the bottle that floats by in the picture contains water in liquid not frozen form.
Corrected entry: The crew members whom the ship shows images of death (their own or otherwise) are shown accurate images we see later on. However, when the Captain is shown the death and torture of his current crewmate D.J., the body is hanging from the hooks almost vertically while the actual body is slanted in a much more horizontal position. The ship could show that future, but not the past?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Peters is about to see the image of her son in the medical station, she picks a bone saw up to defend herself. These are used for autopsies more often than not, and would probably not be laying about even in a medical station on a ship. Also, there was no blood on the blade indicating that even if it had been taken out to be used by the previous crew, it never saw any use. So what's it doing there?
Corrected entry: When Miller, Peters and Justin first board the ship, Miller says something about there being ice crystals everywhere. But earlier in the film, when you first see inside, you can clearly hear the sound of water moving about inside the bottle.
Corrected entry: D.J. is a little rusty on his Latin. In translating the recording with all the screaming on it, he says "liberate me" is "save me", which is correct. Later, he corrects himself by saying the recording was actually "liberate tutte me" or "save yourself", which is incorrect. "Save yourself" would be "Liberate sua" (singular) or "Liberate sue" (plural). "Tutta/Tutte" means "many, lots of, or all of" as in one of my favorite Italian dishes, pasta tutta mare, "pasta with lots of seafood." Just a little first-year Latin from me to you...
Corrected entry: Shortly after Justin is sucked into the gravity drive a huge "energy" wave rips through the Event Horizon. At this time, Miller is in Medical. The energy wave causes one of the doors to Medical to fly off its hinges. The resultant blast wave causes Miller to slam into the wall and then fall to the ground on his chest. However, gravity hadn't been restored on the Event Horizon. No gravity, no fall.
Corrected entry: When Justin gets sucked to outer space, he should freeze almost instantly, because space is too cold.
Continuity mistake: Throughout the entire movie the size of the Event Horizon's interior versus that of its exterior is repeatedly off. Evidence of this is seen mostly with scenes that take place in the main access corridor. First off, it is made to seem that the ship has one central connecting tube, but in the exterior shots there are several tubes that make up the middle of the ship. This is pointed out when Miller is making his way across the ship to get to the air lock that Justin is about to open. Second, the length of the tube (heck even the whole ship) is too small in relation to how the ship appears from the outside. This is pointed out in a few different places in the movie - when the crew is up on bridge, then race all the way to the airlock in the middle of the main access corridor, where Justin has just closed the inner door and when the doctor is asked to go grab his med kit from medical, which is across the ship and he is gone only a few seconds, and also when Miller is running though the corridor to activate the explosive charges. Since the ship has no faster means of transportation, such as turbolifts or a tram system, they could not be covering the distance they appear to be covering in the movie.
