Here’s Why We’ll Never See the Gruesome ‘Event Horizon’ Director’s Cut

 
 
Released in 1997, Paul W.S. Anderson’s hellish space horror flick Event Horizon is a favorite of ours here on Bloody Disgusting, and we know we’re not alone on that. We’ve written about the film a handful of times over the years, and each article we write inevitably gets replied to with the same comment…

WHERE THE HELL IS THE DIRECTOR’S CUT?!

For those who aren’t all that familiar with the project’s creation, a much longer and more gruesome cut of Event Horizon was initially screened for test audiences, who were downright repulsed by the graphic horrors on display in the film – according to legend, some audience members even fainted during the infamous screening.

Paramount agreed that the so-called “director’s cut” was way too brutal, so they commissioned a new cut that excised some of the carnage. And that’s the version we’ve all seen.

According to Wikipedia, “Known deleted scenes include a meeting scene between Weir and people in charge of the mission in which they discuss Event Horizon, some dialogue of which remained present in the theatrical trailer; more backstory for Cooper and Justin, including a stronger explanation for Justin entering the black hole; a deleted backstory of the relationship between Starck and Miller; additional scenes explaining what the gateway to hell/black hole is; Miller finding a tooth floating in Event Horizon, a longer version of the scene in which Peters hallucinates that her son’s mangled legs are covered in maggots; a scene in which Weir hallucinates that Justin turns into his wife Claire; a bloodier version of Weir’s wife Claire’s suicide; a longer version of the scene where Miller finds D.J’s dead body with his guts on the table; and a longer version of the “Visions From Hell” scene during Miller’s final fight with Weir with more shots of Event Horizon crew being tortured.”
