Absurd, surreal and very funny Dark Star was one of the primary inspirations for Red Dwarf. John Carpenter's lo-fi masterpiece crams into its 83 minutes, an amount of invention that would shame films costing hundreds of times more.

The crew of the Dark Star are on a 20-year mission to destroy unstable planets and make way for future colonisation. The smart bombs they use to effect this zoom off cheerfully to do their duty. But order prevails, the nerves of this crew are becoming increasingly frayed to the point of psychosis. Their captain has been killed by a radiation leak and when an asteroid storm causes a malfunction, Bomb Number 20 (the most cheerful character in the film) has to be a repeatedly talked out of exploding prematurely.

An almost forgotten film that virtually never sees the light of day.for his first film john carpenter managed to give us what has fast become a cult classic.some nifty effects,good if silly story and a cast of unknowns make this oddity of a film worth a look.

A real cult classic. Very black humor, very low budget, very funny, great story, low fi effects and well woth a watch. Suprisingly it has aged very well to. Try to get a copy with subtittles as some dialogue is a bit mumbled.
