Directed by John Carpenter | 1974

With Dan O'Bannon, Brian Narelle, Cal Kuniholm, Dre Pahich

"A berserk combination of space opera, intelligent bombs, and beach balls from other worlds."
—Roger Ebert

A group of astronauts is assigned the tedious task of exploding planets to make way for the human colonization of space. Their job gets exciting when an overly self-aware bomb refuses to drop from the bomb bay, threatening to self destruct and blow them all to kingdom come. This very funny sci-fi flick, co-written, starring, and edited by O’Bannon (who went on to write Alien and other horror/sci-fi clasics), features a mischievous alien that looks like a beach ball, a sexy computer, and a bomb with a God complex.
