IKARIE XB 1 (1963)

A mission deep into space in the year 2163 becomes a perilous struggle against insanity when the crew become infected by a malignant dark star. Jindrich Polák's pioneering and much-imitated feature is one of the cornerstones of contemporary sci-fi cinema. Adapted from Stanislaw Lem's 1955 novel The Magellanic Cloud, and predating Gene Rodenberry's Star Trek and Kubrick's 2001. Ikarie XB-1's influence can be seen on both and on almost every other science-fiction film that has followed.
