John Carpenter's pulp science fiction classic - this brilliantly clever and funny parody of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, follows a warped intergalactic mission to blow up unstable planets. Four bored astronauts fill in time between missions catching up on their tans with the help of a sun-lamp, playing with a suspiciously plastic-looking alien mascot they are taking back to Earth and conversing with their female version of Hal. Things start to go horribly wrong as the spaceship computer misfires and a 'smart bomb' thinks it is God. Ultimately only one crew member - an ex-surfer - makes it back to Earth surfing on an improvised board... Dark Star was originally intended to be a 68 minute student film but Hollywood producer Jack Harris managed to convince the film-makers to shoot 15 minutes of extra footage and released the expanded version theatrically. This DVD contains the original shorter version, the longer theatrical release and is packed full of brand new extra features!
