i know i'm way behind the curve on this...but the people that did the marketing for donnie darko should be pimp slapped. i've hesitated when i've seen that movie in blockbuster for some time now because of the tag line "be afraid of the dark". sounded so corny. finally last night i watched it and absolutely loved it. be afraid of the dark????? what is that???? they might as well put "hot babes from Cancun" on the front.

Well, that's the problem with a movie you can't describe.

"Its a Horror-Mystery-Fantasy-Thriller-Teeny-Drama, but without actually being a Horror, Mystery, Fantasy, Thriller or Teeny-Drama."

You just can't sell such movie and that is good :-) You have to stumble across this one or have it pushed in your face by a friend.

They even released it a second time as a director's cut, but when I went to see it there was only one other couple in the theater (on a Friday night!).

There's some guide to understanding the plot posted online somewhere (the key to the ending is telekinesis). But with all the book screenshots in the second release I guess it's not as relevant.

Yep, it's a good'un. A real thinker. The directors cut of the dvd comes out next week (Feb 15th).

yea i just bought that movie and it is a really good movie but i just dont like that phrase either. be afraid of the dark? oh come on. please. this movie is not scary at all and theres nothing in the movie about the dark in order to be afraid about it. but it really is a good movie.

The only time I've been more scared watching TV is when BOB comes over the sofa in Twin Peaks. The rabbit appearance in the therapy session is scary.
