So this is it, folks—Donnie Darko gets its direct to video sequel with the upcoming S. Darko, due out on your video store shelves May 12th.
Containing a whole lot of terror hotties, including not only Miss Chase but also Briana Evigan and from literally out of nowhere Saved By The Bell Showgirl extraordinaire Elizabeth Berkley, S. Darko follows Donnie’s little sister Samantha (the S. in S. Darko) who’s run away from home after her brother’s death fully seven years ago. While out in the desert with her best friend Corey, Samantha witnesses a meteor strike the earth that fractures time and starts a countdown to the end of the world.
Oh boy, just what we all needed—more fun with temporal physics from the movie series that managed to make it even MORE confusing than your college science classes could ever do. I’ve got to admit, I’m not looking forward to this mindbender, mostly because it’s actually almost TOO cerebral. But we’ll get to see how it comes out this May.
