35mm Presentation - Kaboom is a wild, witty, sex-drenched horror-comedy thriller, the latest film from iconoclastic independent filmmaker Gregg Araki (The Doom Generation, Nowhere, Mysterious Skin). Featuring a gorgeous young cast, this hyper-stylized "Twin Peaks" for the Coachella Generation 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. Smith's everyday life in the dorms—hanging out with his arty, sarcastic best friend Stella (Haley Bennett), hooking up with a beautiful free spirit named London (Juno Temple), lusting for his gorgeous but dim surfer roommate Thor (Chris Zylka)—all gets turned upside-down after one fateful, terrifying night. Kaboom shares key touchstones of Araki's early films, including carefully framed Pop Art-like shots, 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.
