DIRECTOR: JOHN CARPENTER

CAST: BRIAN NARELLE, CAL KUNIHOLM, DRE PAHICH, DAN O'BANNON

Carpenter’s ingenious starship-set first feature is something like what would happen if two supremely talented film school smartasses set out to make their own ersatz 2001—which is basically exactly what it is, with USC classmate and co-creator Dan O’Bannon starring as Sgt. Pinback, a prankster who pauses from playing with his beachball-shaped alien pet to convince a suddenly self-possessed thermostellar bomb to pretty please not deploy itself.

Dark Star is screening as part of the series: The Singularity
