Event Horizon

Factual error: When D.J. is attacked by Dr. Weir, he is grabbed by the throat and is squeezed until his windpipe is broken, shown by the way he was breathing (or struggling to). When Weir seizes him again and throws him against a support beam, he screams in a way impossible for someone who just had his windpipe crushed.

Factual error: 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.

Factual error: When Justin is in the air lock and activates the outer door he freaks out as he sees the veins in his arms bulge and then he starts bleeding from his eyes and maybe his mouth too. This wouldn't happen. Movies get this wrong a lot. All that would happen is that he would lose gravity, he would be sucked out of the ship and unless he was holding his breath tightly the air would rush out of his lungs. He would die within about 30 seconds from lack of oxygen, maybe 60 if he was holding his breath, but he would not bleed from anywhere.

Mistakes

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.

Trivia

Many of the corridors in the Event Horizon are coffin shaped - perhaps foreshadowing the fact that it is a "death" ship?
