Paramount had originally planned to release Titanic (1997) in July 1997, but when that film was plagued by delays, it had to be re-scheduled to December 1997. This left Paramount with a gap in its summer movie schedule, so they offered Event Horizon to Paul W.S. Anderson on the condition that the film be ready for an August 1997 release. This meant that the movie was officially greenlit a mere 10 weeks before production was due to begin. This had the unfortunate consequence that the production design was unnecessarily rushed, and it was the reason why many leading production designers turned the film down. See more »

The opening credits are sucked into a black hole. The screen viewpoint pans upward, above, and over the regular Paramount mountain before the opening credits, which usually remains stationary and then fades out. See more »
Very good sci/fi horror mix that does more than jump scares or lots of clichés
I've never written a review before on IMDb but I had to write one for this movie, I thought it was a very standout movie for its time. I'm not a fan of horror movies not because they scare me but because of reused clichés and cliché characters.
It might not seem like a very important movie based on ratings or it's own trailer but I felt there was a great mix of atmosphere ,survival, horror, suspense with Sci/Fi bridging a gap to a touch of super natural(depends on how you view the outcome as it could just be Sci/Fi only) I felt the movie didn't go crazy with jump scares , it creeped me out but provided an entertaining premise as well. I'd highly recommend this movie if you haven't seen it unless you're not a fan of Sci/Fi or survival
