watch this whilst a little baked and you'll freaking love it.
A real low budget cult classic - well worth £2.50

Dark Star. a spaceship manned by four jaded crew and their defunct wired-for-sound chief, has, for twenty years, fulfilled its mission to destroy unstable planets. The crew's morale slumps when the on-board computer backfires, and drops even lower when the toilet paper runs out.

Alternative Synopsis
The first film from John Carpenter is a hilarious romp in a not-so-glamourous spaceship into the outer reaches of space. A team of astronauts manning the beat-up spaceship Dark Star are on a mission across the universe to seek out and destroy unstable planets. The journey is wrought with mishaps and danger seems to come from the most unexpected places. There are misbehaving pet aliens, suicidal bombs that see no reason to live and want to blow themselves up, frozen crewmates dispensing advice from beyond the grave and a surly, unhelpful main computer that holds the men it serves in total contempt. Despite all these problems, the crew is still bored to the brink of madness. Co-written by Dan O'Bannon, who would go on to write the script for ALIEN, the film is brimming with jabs at the science fiction genre. John Carpenter cut his directing teeth on this film, which he also co-wrote. Made while Carpenter was a college student and produced for very little money, DARK STAR is considered to be the most successful student film ever made.
Due for release on 1 june although cd wow states 25th May, great film well worth 2.50
My favourite film of all time, beating "Silent Running" to the top of the "Hippies in Space" table :)
I've got this on VHS somewhere................
The argument with the bomb is superb.

Let there be light.
Anyone know if this is a different print to the one used on VHS and DVD in the late 90s / early 00s? That print was censored in a really weird way - the nudie posters in the makeshift quarters were blurred out crudely. Also I don't think it was in the original aspect ratio. I know better prints exist, as the one the BBC used to use for TV broadcasts was superior.

One of my very favourite movies, this.
PS - it's coming up at £3.99 when I follow the deal link.

same here, still worth it for a classic 'Friday night' film though.
If you look for cd wow in vouchers there is a £1.00 one for registering with them, (One pound off any purchase with them).

Yep, gotta agree. Great films. H&R given, good spot OP.

Doh - Can't add H It's expired, didn't see that. Ah well.
Got this.

Picture and sound quality are terrible on this one.

Silent Running is a much better DVD and a better film.

Dark Star is ok if you're in the mood though.
