Dark Star, what a whacky pile of sh…

Dark StarYesterday evening Cine+ Club gave Dark Star. Since it’s considered somewhat of a cult classic as well as John Carpenters directorial début, and I hadn’t seen it before, I thought I had to watch it.

Well, I would say it’s fairly representative for the bizarre films that was produced, far too often, in the 70’s. I was kind of expecting something weird and that it sure is. A weird and wacky pile of shit.

It holds a rating of 6.5 on IMDb and I fail to understand why. In my eyes, you have to be pretty stoned to like this one. It is claimed that some concepts of this film have been re-used in classics like Alien. I guess the people who claim that was stoned when they watched Alien as well then.
