Trailer

An unhinged ride through the sensual pleasures of movies: naked bodies, booming music, bright colors, crazy twists and zippy action sequences...

— Noel Murray, A.V. Club

Trippy, horny and apocalpytically funny. A gonzo teen fantasy.

— Aaron Hillis, The Village Voice

AN EROTIC BLAST OF SINFUL FLESH, FUN AND FANTASY THAT YOU DON'T WANT TO STOP.

— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

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.
