Trailer for 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.
