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. On that note, one thing we’ve been *dying* to see is the full Director’s Cut of the film, which we sadly never will.
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 “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. As for the Director’s Cut, Anderson has explained that the excised footage was never properly archived, and has therefore been lost to time. “It just doesn’t exist,” he recently stated.
This latest video from Mr. H Reviews goes into detail about each of the never-before-seen deleted scenes, and it’s worth a watch if you’re curious to know what you’ll never see.
