Big Trouble in Little Cinema: The Films of John Carpenter – “DARK STAR” (January 22)

January 22, 2017

A satiric look at the problems experienced by a crew of bumbling astronauts on a mission to destroy rogue planets.

 

John Carpenter directed this wigged-out spoof of 2001: A Space Odyssey. The film originally began as a 45-minute U.S.C. student film project by Carpenter and Dan O’Bannon that was eventually expanded into a feature length production. The story takes place on the deep-space cruiser Dark Star, where a crew of laid-back astronauts are assigned the task of blowing up planets with unsuitable life forms in order to make the universe safe for the human race.
