Did you really think you could destroy this ship? She's defied space and time. She's been to a place you couldn't possibly imagine. And now... it is time to go back.
~ Dr. William Weir
You can't leave. She won't let you.
~ Dr. William Weir
Where we're going... we don't need eyes to see!
~ Dr. William Weir

Dr. William Weir is the main antagonist in the 1997 sci-fi/horror film Event Horizon.

He was portrayed by Sam Neill, who also played Damien ThornCharles Bromley and Mr McGregor .


Sometime in the mid-21st century, a ship called the Event Horizon was designed and built by Dr. William Weir. It was a ship that was capable of faster-than-light travel using an artificial black hole to open a portal from one part of the universe to another. On its maiden voyage, the ship was thought to be lost. But in reality, it used its faster than light engine to travel beyond the boundaries of our dimension to another dimension. One of pure chaos and evil. Some refers to it as Hell itself. The crew was killed on the ship, in very horrifying ways.

In the year 2047, it returned to our galaxy, now a self-aware, living, and malevolent ship. A crew was ordered to go to Event Horizon with Dr. Weir and find out what happened, find the crew, and bring the ship back to Earth. What happened instead was the ship used its telepathic abilities to use the crews fears against them, killing them in the process. It used the form of Dr. Weir's dead wife to seduce him into assisting it.

He blew up the Lewis and Clark, killing Smith then grusomely vivisects DJ much to Miller's horror. Miller became more horrified when Weir's eyes were gouged out. He activates the gravity drive, determined to send the new crew to hell. He was blown out of the window when he fired at Cooper.

After a fight with the rescue crew Captain, the Event Horizon was partially destroyed, sending the drive section of the ship back to the Hell dimension with Dr. Weir and the Captain, leaving only three survivors in the lifeboat part of the ship.
