Having made several shorts, John Carpenter tackled his first feature, taking over three years to finish it. With a shoestring budget, starring four friends –including Dan O’Bannon, future storywriter of Alien (1979)– and a single set, Dark Star is a crazy, hilarious movie set in outer space about astronauts on a mission to destroy unstable planets with their intelligent bombs that talk and think about their work. Carpenter’s debut will always be remembered for the scene of the fight between a member of the spaceship crew and an alien in the shape of a… beach ball.
