    I just checked. It’s £1.50!

    They only seem to have 4 copies total in stock, though.

    def a big influence on RD with a radiation leak, emotional scenes in a round observation deck, etc. I haven’t seen it for years, it’s on youtube but the version on there has crap sound.

    Or £6 for the Blu-ray which has a pretty good documentary. I was dumbfounded to learn that the actors who played Doolittle and Talby filmed their parts in the observation dome separately and never met.

    Shout Factory has been gradually putting out some truly lovely John Carpenter steelbooks:

    Not a direct link to the steelbooks, but you’ll see them there. I really hope they do Dark Star at some point. Honestly I’d be surprised if they didn’t.

    I watched this tonight. It was fun, although not quite what I expected, and it was definitely interesting to note the many RD influences, big and small.
