In the far reaches of space the small crew of the Dark Star spend their days paving the way for colonisation of star systems. 20 years into their mission and with only each other for company they have begun to go stir-crazy. As their mission draws to a close they must face various challenges including faulty ship equipment, a runaway alien, and a bomb with a strong grasp of existential philosophy. The debut film of genre legends John Carpenter (Halloween) and Dan O’Bannon (Alien) is a smart comedy featuring some big laughs and fantastic performances, with O’Bannon’s role as the loony Sgt Pinback the standout.
