Film / The Dark Side of the Moon

The year 2020. The maintenance ship SPACECORE 1 is on a routine "refac" mission. The refabs are fixers. Their purpose is to repair nuclear-armed satellites orbiting high above the earth. Due to the atomic capabilities of these satellites, refabbing is considered dangerous... Very dangerous.

The Dark Side of the Moon is a Sci-Fi Horror film made in 1990. The ship Spacecore 1 mysteriously loses power while on a rountine maintenance mission of nuclear-armed satellites. Miraculously they find a drifting space shuttle that is over 30 years old where they can replenish their oxygen. They also find aboard the corpse of its single pilot. What follows is a string of possessions, murders, paranoia and the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle and the ultimate source of evil.


The Dark Side of the Moon provides examples of:

  • Absurdly Spacious Sewer: Or in this case, Absurdly Spacious Spacecraft. The interior shots of the shuttle make it look labyrinthine and far larger than an actual space shuttle.
  • The Bermuda Triangle: Plays a role in the story, since the dark side of the moon is said to be in a line with the Bermuda Triangle, and to be where all those missing ships go. What's supposed to happen during the 28 or so days a month when the orbiting moon isn't facing the Bermuda Triangle isn't precisely explained.
  • People Puppets: All the evil characters are this, probably to save on casting costs.
