and personal favourite - #DonnieDarko
Synopsis: A troubled teenager is plagued by visions of a man in a large rabbit suit who manipulates him to commit a series of crimes, after he narrowly escapes a bizarre accident.
Donnie Darko is one of the rare films that earn a 10/10 from me. I've been a fan since day dot, and it jumped into my top ten of all time in my first viewing and hasn't moved since.
Every so often a director connects with a great story and the perfect cast. This is one of those times. I literally would not change a thing. Whilst I'm on the subject, although I have a huge amount of respect for writer/director Richard Kelly, the theatrical cut will always be my favourite version. Perhaps not having enough money created a compromised vision, but I think those constraints resulted in better song choices and a version of the film that requires its audience to think a little, rather than be spoon fed.
Have you seen this film? 👀 💭 Post your thoughts below!
Any fan who has been a fan of this film since the beginning knows it was done on a minute budget and with a less than ideal film stock. Arrow's 4K remaster is stunning. It pulls every last piece of detail out-of the camera negative. Colour handling and contrast is much improved too. It'll never be perfect, but it looks perfectly true to the source.
The film may not have a sonic assault, but what it does have is a wonderfully precise and we'll executed mix. Dialogue is always handled well, but where the mix really shines is in its handling of the period specific songs and #MichaelAndrews

31 Days Of Horror: Day 9
I remember the first time I saw Gore Verbinski’s The Ring back when I was eleven; broad daylight, started it at like ten in the morning, and got so scared I almost refused leave the house to go to the beach later with my family. Some films just stay with you if you see them at an impressionable age, and no matter how desensitized and thick skinned you get as your life goes on, you never lose at least a modicum of the raw terror you felt back then (don’t even get me started on The Grudge). Couple that with how beautifully dark the mood and aura of this film is thanks to nocturnally themed cinematography by Bojan Bazelli that turns Seattle and the surrounding rural areas into an eerie ghost playground, and you get something wholly memorable. By now the story is iconic; Naomi Watts plays a forlorn investigative journalist scoping out an urban legend in which people die seven days after they view a videotape apparently showing an experimental student film, which is tied to the backstory of the mysterious Samara (Daveigh Chase) a young girl with unholy supernatural tendencies. Edited together with a grainy VHS aesthetic contrasted by clearly lit, distinct nature and skyline shots, Verbinski gives the film an unmistakable visual element. co-starring talent is also provided by Martin Henderson, David Dorfman, Rachael Bella, Amber Tamblyn, Jane Alexander, Adam Brody and a haunting Brian Cox as Samara’s disconcerted father. I’m not sure how the plot mechanics of the original Japanese film play out, but here they make a wise choice by never divulging exactly *what* is wrong with Samara, just that there is something severely off about her, and it’s that ambiguity combined with Chase’s eerie waif performance that make the character so memorable. Everyone shits their pants at the infamous television scene, but for me the ultimate scare resides in the almost unbearably suspenseful opening prologue, and the quick, blood freezing scene of the aftermath, I’ll never quite be the same after seeing a certain expression on a certain girl’s face. A dime-piece of a fright flick, a fine piece of filmmaking and a horror classic.
