John Carpenter's pulp science fiction classic - this brilliantly clever and funny parody of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey follows a warped intergalactic mission to blow up unstable planets. Four bored astronauts fill in time between missions catching up on their tans with the help of a sunlamp, playing with a suspiciously plastic looking alien mascot they are taking back to earth, and conversing with their female version of Hal. Things start to go horribly wrong as the spaceship computer misfires...
Originally running 68 minutes, before 15 minutes of extra footage were shot and the film was released theatrically, the new release contains the original shorter version, the longer theatrical version, and extra features!
