Writer of ALIEN, Dan O’Bannon, got his start alongside John Carpenter with a student-film-turned-feature called Dark Star. But this bizarre student film would do more than launch John Carpenter’s career. It would set in motion a chain of events that would lead to one of the most beloved and successful science fiction franchises in cinema history–ALIEN.
This is the story of how Dark Star would lead O’Bannon on a journey to Alien and with him, the artists responsible for Alien’s unprecedented style.
