Donnie Darko picture

Trivia: When Donnie is about to enter the car with Gretchen near the end of the film, he clutches at his stomach as if in pain, and we see Frank touch his eye after Donnie dies. Both these moments foreshadow pain: a deleted scene of Donnie's death shows a pole impaling his stomach right where he clutched it. And Donnie shoots Frank in the eye.

Suggested correction: Wow, I find pretty extraordinary that this cameo is not mentioned anywhere else. The guy does look like Morgan Freeman (I am adding a screenshot to the entry), and is not seen anywhere else in the scene, nor Freeman is in the wide shot, so I can't say the entry is false, I just find it quite strange since usually this sort of humorous bit roles get mentioned a lot. Kudos for noticing.

Session 9 picture

Trivia: The film was shot primarily at the Danvers State Asylum, an abandoned hospital. The script was written around the shooting location based on what rooms and corridors were safe to shoot in. Little to no set-dressing had to be done for the film, as it was suitably dilapidated and filled with abandoned medical equipment, which helped add to the film's atmosphere.
