Event Horizon

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.

Suggested correction: It was the possession of whatever was in him that was causing his body to react this way. If the air had actually been pumped out of the air lock, he wouldn't have been able to speak. These were reactions to what has entered his body, which would have done to him similar to what happened to Weir.

Plot hole: In the scene where Lewis and Clark nearly hit the Event Horizon, One of the crew is calling out the closing distance and another confirms this information. Regardless of clouds obscuring their view they were aware of their proximity and the fact that they were speeding towards it and forced to attempt an abrupt stop makes no sense.

Miller: Vacate! I want off this ship.
Dr. Weir: You can't leave. She won't let you.
Miller: You just get your gear and get back on the Lewis and Clark, Doctor, or you'll find yourself walkin' home.
Dr. Weir: I am home.

Trivia: An "event horizon" is the gravitational boundary which encloses or encompasses a black hole, from which no light escapes whatsoever.

Question: Why did the Event Horizon choose to come back after seven years? In fact, why come back at all?

Chosen answer: The movie never explicitly says; but science is as yet unsure what happens to a given piece of matter once it crosses a black hole's event horizon, so who knows? The ship could have been thrown seven years forward in time, or far enough away that it took seven years for it to drift close to Neptune. Pick any explanation you like.
