BBFC Ratings info
EVENT HORIZON is a sci-fi horror in which a rescue team is sent to examine a recovered military ship capable of creating its own black hole to travel beyond time.

Sex & Nudity
Sex & Nudity Reason
There was a very brief scene of an orgy involving sex and rape. There are several instances of female nudity. Some women and men are seen dressing (no nudity, non-sexual). A woman is seen in her underwear (sports bra + panties) a few times. Pictures on the wall show two nude women. A man rips one of them off the wall and uses it to explain something. A man has several hallucinations about a woman: he sees her topless numerous times and her breasts are shown.

Violence & Gore
Violence & Gore Reason
This movie involves several violent, bloody, gruesome moments. Some of them are hallucinations, especially near the end, when characters see brief visions in very fast succession. These shots are very graphic depictions of people being tortured, as well as a display of horribly mutilated corpses. We see a severed hand flying through the air. A frozen corpse is shown floating in the ship, when the artificial gravity is activated, it falls to the ground and shatters into bloody shards. Parts of the bridge of the rediscovered ship after are covered in a dried mess of blood, guts and tissue. A character sees a child lying on an examination table with his legs ripped open (brief, but graphic). A man tries to commit suicide by throwing himself out of an airlock. His body turns veiny, and he starts bleeding from several opening, but he gets rescued. The man's injuries are serious and quite bloody. In a very bloody scene, we see some people dying in gruesome ways (tongue tearing and ripping, eye gouging, intestines falling out of a body, etc.). The scene is flashy and brief, so not particularly detailed, but still gorey and strong. This scene also contains brief images of rape and self-cannibalism. A man is also shown holding his own gouged-out eyes in his hands. A woman falls to her death from a huge height, with very bloody results. A man imagines a woman commiting suicide in a bathtub. We see her approaching her wrist with a cutter, but the actual act is not shown. Afterwards, the bathtub is filled with blood. A person gouges his own eyes out (not extremely graphic). Two men die in an explosion (not shown). A man is tortured and cut open, although the camera focuses mainly on the man's face, so we only see blood running down his mouth, and the torturer's bloody hand. We see a man who is hanging from steel wires and hooks on the ceiling, with his chest cut open and his guts spewn all over the table below him (graphic, but not close-up). A man fires a rivet gun and causes the death of another man. There is a scene where hundreds of gallons of blood flows through a room of the ship. A man's face completely covered with deep, bloody cuts is seen several times. Later on, we see the same man naked (no graphic details) with bloody cuts all over his body too. Two men have a brutal fight which involves very viscious beatings (although not very graphic)

Profanity Reason
There are 26 F-words, 15 shits, a few goddamns, and other more minor swearing, plus we see someone giving the middle finger.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking Reason
Infrequent smoking.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
The blood orgy scene may be the most disturbing part of the movie for some viewers. VERY graphic and bloody. Near the end of the movie, characters start to experience very disturbing visions inside their mind. Most of these last less than one second each, but even without freeze-framing, it is clear that these quick shots depict gruesome scenes of people being tortured in various ways (barbed wire is used), as well as mangled corpses in varying stages of mutilation. The accompanying screams and sounds make these scenes quite unnerving. This is overall an extremely violent, creepy and disturbing movie, that involves plenty of gruesome scenes, and strong themes such as hallucinations, suicide, possession, mayhem, insanity. There are some extremely bloody and disturbing sequences of torture, murder and suicide, as well as frequent references, both verbal and visual, to hell. There are a few scary moments as well. A man's appearance is frightening, as his face is completely covered with red cuts. A woman with her eyes removed appears suddenly throughout the course of the movie and the hallucinations with her in them are very frightening and uncomfortable to watch. The entire movie is frightening and very grim, the entire plot is based on the fact that the ship has been to hell and she will never let anyone leave, this environment is very dark and scary constantly.
