In John Carpenters directorial debut, a group of scientists are on a mission to destroy unstable planets. During their journey, they battle their alien mascot (who closely resembles a walking beach ball), and the sensitive and intelligent bombing device which starts to question the meaning of its existence. a sci-fi satire, Dark star was originally intended to be a 68 minute film. Hollywood producer, Jack Harris, convinced the fi lmmakers to shoot 15 minutes of extra footage and released the expanded version in 1975. to honour the filmmakers wishes, this DVD contains the shorter 1974 Original version and the longer 1975 theatrical release version.
