[[caption-width:200:My Frank! What big eyes you have!]]
->''Now 7 years later, Donnie's youngest sister, Samantha, seemingly alone and lost in the world, has run away from her home shattered by the death of her brother. Drowning in sadness and unable to dream, she has drifted deeper into the darkness of her sleep. And when darkness consumes the starlight, nightmares rule the night...''

Sam and Corey are two eighteen year olds on a road trip to California hoping to make it big as dancers there.
Along the way their car breaks down in Conejo Springs, a small town in Utah. [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys The town badass]], Randy, comes to their rescue, [[SmokingIsCool cigarette]] in hand.

As they end up staying for a while they meet a [[{{Expy}} Donnie look-a-like]] running amok in military clothes, a nerdy kid with a rash, a BadassPreacher and experience many a weird going-on.

The sequel to ''DonnieDarko'' [[FanonDiscontinuity no fan will admit exists]]. Though the film is widely considered inferior to its predecessor, it does have some features that were praised, such as the [[SceneryPorn stunning cinematography]] and [[TheNineties nineties]] pop songs.
----
!!This film provides examples of:
* BadassPreacher
* ContinuityNod: At the party scene, there is a girl in a white bikini who drapes herself in an American flag. In the original ''DonnieDarko'', Donnie had a poster with a white swimsuit model backgrounded by an American flag.
* [[spoiler: DecoyProtagonist]]: DoubleSubverted.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Corey calls Sam one at one point.
* MindScrew: Intended, at least. Unfortunately, so much weird shit happens in this movie that in the end, you just stop thinking about it.
* NerdGlasses: Jeremy's.
* RetCon: Many things mentioned in S.Darko, such as their family still living in Virginia contradicts the WordOfGod from the first movie. Samantha also somehow got Donnie's copy of "The Philosophy of Time Travel", complete with Frank drawings by Donnie, even though he only got a copy of the book in the tangent universe in the original.
* SceneryPorn: Really good scenery porn at that!
* ShellShockedVeteran: Iraq Jack. He claims to have done some [[KickTheDog bad things]] during the GulfWar, but nobody seems to take him seriously.
* StalkerWithACrush [[spoiler:Jeremy.]]
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: It seems as though all of the male leads were chosen for looking like Donnie Darko.
* TheNineties
* TrailersAlwaysLie: An early trailer for the movie made it appear as if it would take place during the events of DonnieDarko, only from Samantha's [[POVSequel perspective]]. Doubles as WhatCouldHaveBeen.
* WildTeenParty

[[SarcasmMode Lovely.]]



The [[{{Sequelitis}} "sequel"]] to ''DonnieDarko'' no fan will admit exists. Richard Kelly has stated that he has not had anything to do with it whatsoever. It is generally considered as a great example of a Hollywood dick move. It does have some redeeming features however, such as the [[SceneryPorn stunning cinematography]] and [[TheNineties nineties]] pop songs.

* DidNotDoTheResearch: Many things mentioned in S.Darko, such as their family still living in Virginia and Sam having "The Philosophy of Time Travel" contradicts the WordOfGod from the first movie. Also, though the movie is set in 1995, two movies that weren't out yet at the time were seen showing at a movie theater.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Unintentional but hilarious! [[spoiler:The headbutt scene! Oh lord the headbutt scene!]]
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The score is possibly the best part of the movie. It justifies existence of the movie, anyway.



* {{Narm}} So very much of it.



* {{Sequelitis}} Obviously.



* WallBanger: In the film's climax [[spoiler:Earth is attacked by [[AlienGeometries Tesseracts]]. It's implied even after the time loop is closed that this will happen anyways because [[AssPull it has nothing to do with anything else that happens in the film]].]]
