"An unhinged ride through the sensual pleasures of movies: naked bodies, booming music, bright colors, crazy twists, and zippy action sequences."—Noel Murray, Onion AV Club

The latest film from iconoclastic independent filmmaker Gregg Araki (Mysterious Skin, Smiley Face, The Living End), Kaboom is a hyperstylized "Twin Peaks" for the Coachella Generation, featuring a gorgeous young cast. Wild, witty, and sex-drenched, this horror-comedy thriller tells the story of Smith (Thomas Dekker), an ambisexual 18-year-old college freshman who stumbles on a monstrous conspiracy in a seemingly idyllic Southern California seaside town. Kaboom shares key touchstones with Araki's early films, including scatological and absurd Valley-inflected dialogue, elements of campy gore, and the director’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. (86 mins., HD video)
