Dark Star (1974) 83 minutes. Written by and Music by John Carpenter. In the 22nd Century, the bored crew of a starship on an intergalactic mission, to blow up planets in space-lanes, become prey to their own phobias, and to the alien mascot they are taking back to Earth. Low-budget, cult-status, at the time a different kind of 'space-science fiction' from the flying saucers and aliens that had prevailed, but not wholly entertaining, though has some funny bits. http://uk.imdb.com/Title?0069945 With: Dan O'Bannon, Brian Narelle, Dre Pahich, Cal Kuniholm.
