Dark Star

Directed by John Carpenter
United States, 1974
Comedy, Sci-Fi, Thriller


The misadventures of a deep space wrecking crew. Charged with an endless mission to destroy unstable planets—and long since worn down by routine, isolation, faulty equipment, and each other—they’re slowly pushed to the edge in this offbeat, low-budget response to 2001.
