S. Darko Trailer Makes Me doubt my commitment to Sparkle Motion

Posted on 21 February 2009 by ShepRamsey

Well, friends, if you hadn’t heard, it seems they’re conjuring up a direct-to-video sequel to Richard Kelly’s fantastic 2001 cult hit Donnie Darko. And we’ve got the trailer right here.

donnie-darko1The sequel, titled S. Darko, revolves around Donnie’s little sister Samantha (played by Daveigh Chase, reprising her role from the original…unlike everyone else), several years after his death at the end/beginning of the first film, receiving similar end-of-the-world premonitions like her brother did.

The trailer looks like run-of-the-mill whiny teen Sci-Fi channel trash and if I’m not mistaken I think that was Elizabeth Berkley saying a line that sounded like “We need to get to the children before they spoil.” And just in case you weren’t willing to believe that this had anything to do with the original film, the kicker at the end gives us a glimpse at a guy in a demon-bunny mask.

It’s pretty worthless, but if you must, check it out right here.

    It looks like they missed absolutely everything that made the original great. Subtlety, originality, and a quiet, personal tone.

    This is meteor crashing race against time crap.
