Event Horizon

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

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

Allister Cooper, 2011

Trivia: Pneumatic palm sanders were used as hatch door switches for the gravity drive room and the access-way leading to it. Do a Google image search for "Pneumatic Palm Sander" to see examples of the tool. It's a vintage or classic style that's used in the film. (00:26:45)

Trivia: The Event Horizon was designed to have features subtly reminiscent of the famous Notre-Dame Cathedral.

Quotes

Dr. Weir: What was made public about the Event Horizon - that she was a deep space research vessel, that her reactor went critical, and that the ship blew up - none of that is true. The Event Horizon is the culmination of a secret government project to create a spacecraft capable of faster-than-light flight.
Smith: Uhm, excuse me. See, you can't actually do that.

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.
