Dark Star, DVD


Director John Carpenter's first feature, begun when he was a film student, has become a cult favourite.

Seen as a parody of Stanley Kubrick's '2001: A Space Odyssey', the film tells the story of four space-weary astronauts - Lt.

Doolittle (Brian Narelle), Sgt. Pinback (Dan O'Bannon), Boiler (Carl Kuniholm) and Talby (Dre Pahich) - on an extended mission to blow up unstable planets.

An electronic forcefield, however, has altered the programming of their bomb and the four must somehow find a way to reset it before it blows them up.
