Cast overview, first billed only:
Co-Worker (as J.J. Neward)


July, 1995, the time is out of joint. Two teen girls, Sam and Corey, have left Virginia for L.A. to start over. Sam's brother has died and her family's shattered; Corey's too wild. They have car trouble in a small desert town, where Corey immediately starts her partying ways, where a meteorite strikes a windmill, and where a burned-out Desert Storm vet predicts the end of the world in four days. Sam hallucinates while sleepwalking, young men have disappeared from town, and cars come out of nowhere to cause accidents. Time travel may be possible, but it takes courage and resolve. Is the addled war veteran right? If he is, can Corey or Sam make things right? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

The movie is set in Summer 1995, but we see movie announcements, car models, and currency units which didn't exist at that date. This is in keeping with the movie's themes of time travel and altered reality. See more »

Wake up!
10 May 2009 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I can start by saying that I'm a great fan of Donnie Darko. When I watched that movie the first time I was amazed and started thinking about all the possible meanings it could have had. When I heard about this sequel I was quite skeptic. I watched this movie for about 45 minutes then I paused it and started asking myself questions... so I said to myself : "Ok you can do this". Started watching the rest of the movie and in the end I was completely distraught. There was nothing to this movie.. the characters were not interesting at all. It just looked like they took bits of Donnie Darko and applied them to a random plot.. Oh wait.. Which plot? Donnie Darko was hard to understand of course, like any work of art, but you can't make a movie without meaning expecting the public to see something that just isn't there.

I gave this a 1 out of 10 because as I recently heard "Sometimes the beauty is in the attempt".
