When Nick Dunne drives his father back to the retirement home, "Don't Fear The Reaper" by Blue Öyster Cult plays on the car radio. This ubiquitous song was also featured in Halloween (1978) when Annie is driving with Laurie, and a cover version of the song was used in Scream (1996) when Billy enters Sidney's bedroom through the window. The song is also used in Joe Eszterhas' unproduced screenplay "Foreplay". See more »

Instead of the traditional 20th Century Fox music that accompanies the logo in the beginning usually, a track from the soundtrack, "What Have We Done to Each Other?" (the first track) plays while the logo is shown, and continues to the Regency logo and the movie's opening credits. See more »
Dark And Twisted, Full Of Great Visual Storytelling
Dark and twisted, David Fincher's stylish new mystery thriller was derived from Gillian Flynn's intriguingly slick tale from her complex and suspenseful novel. By far one of the best acting performances to have come from Ben Affleck, 'Gone Girl' boasts some strong yet disturbing portrayals from Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry and Affleck. Fincher has garnered fame and recognition as a mainstream director, that is not only able to engulf the audience within the picture, but actually make them part of the scenario. Fincher exercises upon his trademarks with the swift and stunning cinematography, the chilling score and tight editing, all of which makes 'Gone Girl' a movie full of great visual storytelling.
