In the Event Horizon movie, the crew figures out the ship has been to "Hell".
The ship travels by using a black hole to create a wormhole, but instead of Proxima Centauri, the wormhole led to an alternate dimension, "a dimension of pure chaos, pure evil." So I suppose whether that qualifies as the hell from the bible depends on your interpretation. I don't recall any of the flashbacks including the torment of long-dead souls, so I'd suggest that no, it's not the biblical hell, just a terrible place.
Well there was a scene that didn't make it in, and in that scene Millers not actually fighting Weir he's fighting the entity that came back with the ship. Miller asks it if it is the devil and the entity tells him he's not the devil but "the darkness behind the stars" and that "it had been around since before the Big Bang" so no it's not hell
No, but where ever the place is that the ship visits, it looks an awful lot like the things HP Lovecraft dreamt up. Also, Deadites are from the Raimi movies, it was Cenobites in the Hellbound Heart.
Although the script is relatively vague, there's enough contextual clues to make a reasonable assumption that the ship was actually in hell.
- The distress call literally translates as
"Save yourself. From Hell"
- Justin states that he's been in
"The other place"
- The script refers to Miller being shown...
"VISIONS FROM HELL"
The original captain of the Event Horizon, after gouging his own eyes out, speaks a warning in Latin. Perhaps, then, the most relevant question is whether he or any member of the original crew knew Latin before they turned the experimental hyperdrive on.
It stands to reason that if no one on the crew ever learned this language before the incident, it must have been taught to the captain by someone or something other than a crewmember after the activation of the drive. Since literal Biblical demons are frequently depicted as speaking Latin in modern media, this would be evidence in favor of the Event Horizon having passed through the literal Biblical Hell, rather than merely some unpleasant alien dimension.
In short, who taught the captain Latin? Was it a demon?
