About Kaboom

The latest film from iconoclastic independent filmmaker Gregg Araki, KABOOM is a hyper-stylized ”Twin Peaks” for the Coachella Generation, featuring a gorgeous young cast. A wild, witty and sex-drenched horror-comedy thriller, KABOOM tells the story of Smith (Thomas Dekker), an ambisexual 18-year-old college freshman who stumbles upon a monstrous conspiracy in a seemingly idyllic Southern California seaside town. KABOOM shares key touchstones of Araki’s early films, including scatological and absurd Valley-inflected dialogue, elements of campy gore and Araki’s troupe of arrestingly sexy guys and girls. With his sophisticated synthesis of various experiments in tone and cinematography, Araki has reached a new level of artistic maturity.

Acclaim

"Trippy, horny and apocalpytically funny. A gonzo teen fantasy."
Aaron Hillis, The Village Voice
"An unhinged ride through the sensual pleasures of movies: naked bodies, booming music, bright colors, crazy twists and zippy action sequences..."
Noel Murray, The Onion AV Club
"AN EROTIC BLAST OF SINFUL FLESH, FUN AND FANTASY THAT YOU DON'T WANT TO STOP."
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
