Deleted Essential Scenes
27. Bite Me!
Eeek! That big-haired vampire totally put my finger in his mouth!
A deleted scene from a film so cherished by (mostly female, mostly teenage) vamp-fans that its appearance on YouTube sparked meta-debates in the form of other YouTube videos.
14. Joker Takes The Bus
The Dark Knight (2008)
An unseen angle from inside the school bus on which The Joker rides away from the hospital he’s just exploded.
Ledger is incredible, his face-smeared monster jittering and jolting without ever once looking at the destruction out the window.
10. Frank Poetry
Donnie Darko (2001)
This scene of Donnie reading Frank-inspired verse to his school class was presumably cut because it made a solid connection between the time traveller’s maybe-psychosis and the outside world - something which played with more ambiguity in the finished film.
