That star comes from a Dior stocking (net) stretched over a filter frame and placed in front of the lens -- and then a bright light pointed at the net.

Gilbert Taylor who shot 'The Omen' ( 1976 ) used a similar look in some scenes - worked perfectly, added to the suspense very nicely too !

Incidentally ( and going off topic ), I just found out that sadly Gilbert Taylor died last month aged 99. :(
