A commercial and critical failure, Event Horizon was panned for its gratuitous gore, overreliance on horror clichés, and a mishmash of genres. Despite being one of the worst movies of director Paul W. S. Anderson, Event Horizon was saved by one of the character’s descent into madness at the end of the movie. While some viewers may find the film’s conclusion silly, there’s something wickedly good in Dr. William Weir’s (Sam Neill) journey to blood-soaked lunacy.

Dr. Weir’s insanity peaked in the scene where he gouged out his own eyes while saying the lines “Where we’re going you don’t need eyes to see.” The moment is creepy yet fun, just like most memorable scenes from ‘90s horror movies.
