That's interesting abut the new film. Wasn't his sister played by that girl whos in that new CGI film or whatever it is?
What I liked about it was that even though the director has elaborated on the plot (Time vortex's and such) the movie still had the ability to leave you wondering, as if it had not resolved itself completely. After many viewings I still have a sense of wonder. There certainly is a sense that Donnie is up against some evil. Here is a link that will take you to the actor who plays Samantha in both films.
The directors cut is more revealing of the time traveling aspect but the original still has that quality that lets you supply the other hand as it were.(Zen). In the scene at the movie house notice that the 2 movies playing are Dawn of the Dead & The Last Temptation of Christ, plenty of allegories.
