With its gothic tale of a troubled teen haunted by visions of a figure in a Halloween rabbit suit, "Donnie Darko" was among the first cult movie phenomena of the twenty-first century, making debut director Richard Kelly hot Hollywood property before he reached his thirtieth birthday. This study narrates the film's journey from box-office bemusement through word of mouth success to the recent director's cut of the film, and also discusses fans' reactions to the film's enigmatic conclusion, explaining how "Donnie Darko" gripped the imagination of Generation X teenagers across the world.
