Classic Cinema: DARK STAR
June 4, 2013 § Leave a comment
John Carpenter’s first film Dark Star is a masterpiece of comic science fiction. Okay, maybe not a masterpiece, but it’s a cult film and one of my all time favorites. Originally shot as a student film, Dark Star features some of the hairiest astronauts I’ve ever seen. (And I admit it, I ripped off the talking bomb idea for my novel The Sins of Swann Mercury.)
