I believe it is a horror or a thriller perhaps. The movie is a bunch of entries from the crew.

The story is that a ship with a crew on board flies into a black hole, something like point of no return or that. They go crazy and eat each other.

    Do you know when you saw this? Was it new at the time? Can you remember any plot elements or memorable scenes? If so you should edit them in. – TheLethalCarrot Sep 11 at 15:03

    What kind of ship? Is it a SPACE ship? – user14111 Sep 11 at 17:54

    @user14111 If it "flies into a black hole", either it is a space ship or they are really suck at seafaring... – SJuan76 Sep 11 at 18:09

    @SJuan76 Or else they really suck at flying their airship. Or their relationship. – user14111 Sep 11 at 22:42

The movie Event Horizon (1997) features a crew investigating the return of an experimental FTL ship. The original crew used an artificial black hole as part of their drive tech, and went crazy when they crossed the event horizon, cueing much clawing of eyes from sockets and eating of flesh.

Some of the original crew experiences are accessed & shown as video logs

The crew investigating the ship experience similar madness/evil as the drive mysteriously switches itself on.

    Pandorum (2009) (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandorum) also features a wayward spaceship with cannibals. – jeffronicus Sep 11 at 17:04

    I caught it at the cinema. God, it got under my skin. Of all the horror films I've seen, that's the only one where I can honestly say it was a great film, I'm really glad I saw it, and I never ever want to see it again. – Graham Sep 11 at 23:41

    This is a great movie but I believe it to be incorrect. The crew does not eat each other in the movie and the movie is free flowing on the crew, not a bunch of different entries – USER_8675309 Sep 12 at 17:45

    I would be surprised if this was it. I love EH and have watched it several times, but I never would have tagged the movie with cannibalism even if there were a bit when the EH was in the other 'verse. – UnhandledExcepSean Sep 12 at 17:46

This description puts me in mind of the indi-movie The Drift which is available, from the production company, in full on YouTube here. The crew of a salvage ship goes into a dark nebula to scavenge a group of ships stranded by the "Darkwave" and finds them distressingly occupied. The occupants are warring cannibal clans who have managed to interconnect several large vessels into a rambling and horrific maze. From memory the story is told as a series of POV experiences of different crew members as they move through the ship-maze trying to complete their mission and not get eaten in the process.

    Don't know if this is what OP was looking for, but at least now I have something to watch this weekend - thanks! – A C Sep 12 at 17:05
