Legend says that Antonio Bay was built in 1880 with blood money obtained from shipwrecked lepers, which no one believes. On the eve of the town's centennial, many plan to attend the celebrations, including the murdered lepers.
Jamie Lee Curtis,
Low-budget story of four astronauts in deep space, whose mission is to destroy unstable planets in star systems which are to be colonised. The late Commander Powell is stored in deep freeze, where he is still able to offer advice. As their mission nears completion, they must cope with a runaway alien which resembles a beach-ball, faulty computer systems, and a "smart bomb" who thinks it is God. Written by

30 years ago a cult classic was made, and it is still alive! Many things have been said and written about this movie and most of it is true.
The crew of the Dark Star perished long ago. 25 years ago I revived the memories with the novelization by Alan Dean Foster. 20 years ago I bought the vinyl record. When the VCR came, I recorded the film from TV. When it was available on VHS, I bought the cassette. I can now play 'Benson Arizona' on the guitar and recently I bought the DVD. Okay, so I'm a fan! If a remake ever is being made, I'd like to see it directed by John Carpenter. The story is still alive, not because it looks good, but because it is an excellent and highly entertaining story. Such story-telling has always been rare. A remake might help bringing this pearl to pork who yet can't see beyond their own noses. But for those who cinema does not need to be flashy, the original will always do.
