Liberate tute me ex inferis
You know nothing. Hell is only a word. The reality is much, much worse.
Where we're going, we won't need eyes to see.
I created the Event Horizon to reach the stars, but she's gone much, much farther than that.

Event Horizon is a British Sci-fi horror film set in 2047. It deals with a crew of a deep space rescue ship, the Lewis and Clark, who discover a lost experimental ship with a terrifying secret.

Directed by Paul W. S. Anderson. Screenplay by Philip Eisner (with an uncredited rewrite by Andrew Kevin Walker).

Captain Miller[edit]

  • God help us.
  • [after watching the original crew's final chaotic log] We're leaving.

Dr. Weir[edit]

  • You can't leave...she won't let you.
  • Where we're going, we won't need eyes to see.
  • Do you see?


  • Lt Cmdr D.J.: (after playing a recording of the ship's log) I thought it said libera te me, save me. But it's not me. It's liberate tute me—save yourself. And it gets worse. (Plays recording) There. I think that says ex inferis. Save yourself... from hell.


Starck: Black Hole - the most destructive force in the universe - and you have created one?
Weir: Absolutely, yes! Because we can use that immense power to bend space-time—look, it would take the Lewis and Clark a thousand years to reach the nearest star. The Event Horizon could be there in a day!
Starck: If it worked ...
Weir: [Descending to the black hole generator] You can come down, it is perfectly safe!

[after watching the Event Horizon's horrific final log entry]
Miller: We're leaving.
Weir: No, we can't leave. Our orders are specific.
Miller: Rescue the crew, salvage what's left of the ship. The crew is dead, doctor. Your ship killed them.
Weir: We came here to do a job—
Miller: We're aborting, Doctor! Starck, download the files from the Event Horizon computers. DJ, I want you to get Justin prepped and move him back to the Clark.
DJ: There's stuff I want to get from Medical. I've got to move him into a tank.
Miller: Not a problem. Do it. Peters, I want you to get the CO2 scrubbers back into the Clark. Take Smitty with you.
Weir: Captain... don't do this.
Miller: It's done.
Weir: What about my ship? You can't just leave her!
Miller: I have no intention of leaving her, Doctor. I will take the Lewis and Clark to a safe distance and then I'll launch TAC missiles at the Event Horizon until I'm satisfied she's vaporized. Fuck this ship!
[Weir tries to grab Miller, who shoves him back; the lights shut off]
Starck: [over intercom] Captain Miller, the bio-scan just went off the scale. It looks like the core is draining power from the rest of the ship.
Miller: [into intercom] Get the files. Vacate. I want off this ship.
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 walking home.
Weir: I am home.

Weir: I created the Event Horizon to reach the stars, but she's gone much, much farther than that. She tore a hole in our universe, a gateway to another dimension. A dimension of pure chaos. Pure... evil. When she crossed over, she was just a ship. But when she came back... she was alive! Look at her, Miller. Isn't she beautiful?
Miller: Your "beautiful" ship killed its crew, Doctor.
Weir: Well... now she has another crew. Now she has us.

Miller: [realizing who it actually was] Weir?
Weir: [cold, dark laughter] The ship brought me back. I told you she won't let me leave. She won't let anyone leave. Did you really think you could destroy this ship? She's defied space and time. She's been to a place you couldn't possibly imagine. And now, it is time to go back.
Miller: I know. To Hell.
Weir: You know nothing. Hell is only a word. The reality is much, much worse. [grasps Miller's head] Now let me show you!
[Miller is subjected to visions of his crew being horrifically tortured and killed]
Miller: NO! No...!
Weir: You see?
Miller: [gasping] No... they're not dead! They're not... dead...!
Weir: Not yet.
Miller: [beating Weir with a CO2 scrubber] YOU! WON'T! TAKE! MY! CREW!
[Weir disarms and viciously beats Miller]
Weir: They're not your crew anymore. They belong to the ship.
Ship voice: Gateway opening.
Miller: Take me. You take me, you leave them alone!
Weir: No. There is no escape. The gateway is open, and you are all coming with me!
[Miller is forced to see more visions]
Weir: Do you see? Do you see?! DO YOU SEE?!
Miller: [grabs detonator] Yes, I see. [activates it]
Weir: [screaming in terror, denied the other surviving crewmembers] NOOOOOOOOOO!!!
