In 2040 Dr. William Weir (Sam Neill) launches 'Event Horizon' a starship he designed that utilizes a special method for travelling vast distances in a few seconds. In effect, Event Horizon creates a black hole and slips through it to traverse space. Originally designed to explore the outer parts of space past the planet Neptune, the spaceship and its crew disappear without a trace on the ship's maiden voyage.

The ship resurfaces 7 years later orbiting Neptune and sounding out a distress signal. Captain Miller (Laurence Fishburne) leads the crew of spaceship 'Lewis and Clark' to salvage and investigate. Yet the crew soon suspect that Weir is not sharing the whole story with them, as they believe something very sinister happened aboard 'Event Horizon'...
