DARK, DARKER, DARKO...

Fox Home Entertainment invites you to go down the rabbit hole to re-discover writer/director Richard Kelly's sensational and disturbing cult masterpiece when the DONNIE DARKO: DIRECTOR'S CUT arrives on DVD February 15, 2005.

Defying genre boundaries and simple explanations, the mind-bending film captures the darkness and angst of a disturbed teenager in a unique and dreamlike story. Boasting powerful performances by an all-star cast including Jake Gyllenhaal (The Day After Tomorrow), Drew Barrymore (Charlie's Angels), Jena Malone (Saved!), Patrick Swayze (Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights) and Noah Wyle ("ER"), DONNIE DARKO has been hailed as "an engaging, time-tripping Holden Caufield" by the New York Post.

Available for $26.98, DONNIE DARKO: THE DIRECTOR'S CUT is presented with English Dolby Surround 2.0 and English Dolby Digital 5.1 in widescreen (aspect ratio 2.35:1), and includes audio commentary with writer/director Richard Kelly and Kevin Smith, a Donnie Darko Production Diary with optional commentary by director of photography Steven Poster, "They Made Me Do It Too—The Cult Of Donnie Darko," a storyboard to screen featurette, "#1 Fan: A Darkomentary" and the director's cut theatrical trailer.

DONNIE DARKO - Synopsis

During the presidential election of 1988, a teenager named Donnie Darko (Jake Gyllenhaal) sleepwalks out of his house one night, and sees a giant, demonic-looking rabbit named Frank, who tells him the world will end in 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes, and 12 seconds. He returns home the next morning to find that a jet engine has crashed through his bedroom. As he tries to figure out why he survived and tries to deal with people in his town, like the school bully, his conservative health teacher, and a self-help guru, Frank continues to turn up in Donnie's mind, causing him to commit acts of vandalism and worse. 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. Gyllenhaal leads a star-filled cast as a delusional high-school student visited by a demonic rabbit with eerie visions of the past – and deadly predictions for the future.
