DARK STAR (1974)



We have talked to John Carpenter a lot and consider him and his wife Sandy friends of the site but this is a pretty uneven film. I think even he would admit this. It was treated as more of an experiment than anything else. A group of friends working their cinematic muscles for really the first time. It may only work about 35% of the time but it was part of the path he had to walk to get to ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 and I don’t know about you, but I’ll take my lumps if it means getting to that good shit.
