|Featuring the blockbuster that started a worldwide phenomenon and it's equally compelling sequel, this exclusive DVD 2-pack from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment includes the films DONNIE DARKO and S. DARKO: A DONNIE DARKO TALE!|
DONNIE DARKO: In the tradition of Urban Legends and Final Destination, DONNIE DARKO is an edgy, psychological thriller about a suburban teen coming face-to-face with his dark destiny. Jake Gyllenhaal leads a star-filled cast (including Drew Barrymore, Noah Wyle, Jena Malone, Patrick Swayze and Mary McDonnell) as a delusional high-school student visited by a demonic rabbit with eerie visions of the past -- and deadly predictions for the future. This "excitingly original" (Entertainment Weekly) nail-biter will keep you on the edge of your seat until the mind-bending climax.
S. DARKO: Seven years after her brother's death, Samantha Darko finds herself stranded in a small desert town after her car breaks down where she is plagued by bizarre visions telling of the universe's end. As a result, she must face her own demons, and in doing so, save the world and herself.
"[Donnie Darko] ...a deliriously subtle exploration of storytelling possibilities, and a deliciously wry teen-pic to boot. Brilliant. David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor
"[Donnie Darko] As emotionally rich as it is intellectually demanding. Jean Oppenheimer, New Times
"[Donnie Darko] Kelly is a supple and courageous storyteller, boldly free-associating as he mixes parody and satire with earnest psychodrama... Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"[Donnie Darko] The nerviest, oddest, most outlandish and idiosyncratic American indie debut since "Buffalo 66," Richard Kelly's "Donnie Darko" defies description. Michael Atkinson, Mr. Showbiz
Editor's NoteIn Richard Kelly?s indelible cult hit, troubled teenager Donnie Darko is visited by a disturbing bunny-man named Frank, who warns of the end of the world in late-1980s suburbia. In the sequel, S. DARKO, Donnie?s little sister has grown up and begins experiencing visions reminiscent of big bro's. See individual titles for complete information.
