Sundance Selects presents KABOOM!

From independent film maker Gregg Araki (The Doom Generation and Nowhere) comes his most ambitious film yet.  KABOOM! If that title isn’t catchy then I don’t know what is.  From just looking at the trailer, one would think it’s a comedy, which did have me laughing, but then switches gears and borders on being a thriller and horror film.  Gregg Araki is known for making some trippy films in general, but KABOOM seems to be his most ambitious project yet.  Speaking of which, we do need to see some Gregg Araki films on Blu-ray soon!  
 
KABOOM will open theatrically 1.28, and will be available on demand direct from the Sundance Film Festival on 1.22. The film is a Sundance Selects release.

INFO: Indie veteran Gregg Araki returns to the spotlight with KABOOM, a hyper-stylized Twin Peaks for the Coachella Generation, featuring a gorgeous, super-hot young cast.  The film is a wild, sex-drenched, comical thriller that tells the story of Smith, an ambisexual 18-year-old college freshman who stumbles upon a monstrous conspiracy in a seemingly idyllic Southern California seaside town. KABOOM will make its US premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and is writer/director Araki’s eighth film there since his breakthrough The Living End, including The Doom Generation to his masterpiece Mysterious Skin.  The film stars Thomas Dekker, Juno Temple, Haley Bennett, Chris Zylka, Roxane Mesquida, Andy Fischer-Price, James Duval and Kelly Lynch.
