We learned that Fox Home Entertainment and MGM Home Entertainment will be releasing S. Darko on DVD April 28th. The trailer will premiere at the New York Comic Con before arriving here on the web the following week. Beyond the break you can check out the full synopsis for the film, along with your first look at Samantha Darko, played by (Daveigh Chase of ‘The Ring’ fame).
The continuation of cult classic DONNIE DARKO finds now eighteen year-old classic beauty Samantha Darko (Daveigh Chase) and her rebellious best-friend Corey Richardson (Briana Evigan) in the midst of a cross-country road-trip to ‘make it big’ in Hollywood.
But their big dreams are cut short when their water pump blows outside of a tiny Utah town.
Stranded with the local teens for a few days until their car’s fixed, Sam and Corey are less than thrilled at the delay…and when an unexplained meteorite crash-lands in town that night, it soon becomes clear that there is much more at play than just a chance breakdown.
Plagued by bizarre hallucinatory dreams warning her of the universe’s eminent end, as well as grief over her own loss of family, Sam must face the demons she has fled back at home. Aided by the unlikely town locals, Sam learns the true meaning of family and friendship, and in doing so, saves both herself and the world.
