Gravity slows time. The passage of time outside the event horizon is supposed to be infinite relative to the time at the event horizon. Also, the change in gravity approaching the event horizon becomes so strong it pulls the object entering apart. As an example if you jumped in to one your feet would be in a stronger gravitational pull than your head. The pull would become so strong it would rip you apart, but it wouldn't end there. Each piece would go through the same thing as it approached, resulting in infinite shredding.
I haven't studied this formally, but that's what I've read.
