Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.04.09] movie news scifi comedy drama

Gregg Araki's wild, over-sexed and slightly apocalyptic cult movies defined the nineties indie movement as much as the work of Steven Soderbergh or Quentine Tarantino. They were ripe with outsider sentiment and were insanely sophisticated in terms of presenting gen-x youth culture in action. Not only that but you gotta give the man props for introducing us to many of our favorite sex kittens - The Doom Generation's Rose McGowan and, of course, his Nowhere brought us Denise Richards.

His new film is called KABOOM and it brings together Thomas Dekker (of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles fame), Kelly Lynch, Rooney Mara, Roxane Mesquida in a film that sounds like classic Araki, but with a scifi twist. And for the Araki fans out there, yes James Duval is in this film too.

A hyper-stylized TWIN PEAKS for the Coachella Generation, featuring a gorgeous, super hot young cast, KABOOM is a wild and sex-drenched horror-comedy 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...

Smith's everyday life in the dorms - hanging out with his arty, sarcastic best friend Stella, hooking up with a beautiful free spirit named London, lusting for his gorgeous but dim surfer roommate Thor - all gets turned upside-down after one fateful, terrifying night. Tripping on some hallucinogenic cookies he ate at a party, Smith is convinced he's witnessed the gruesome murder of an enigmatic Red Haired Girl who has been haunting his dreams.

Kaboom is currently in post-production but the only thing we've got for you at the moment are three stills.

More as it comes.

I'm a big fan or Araki though I'm not sure I ever need to see Mysterious Skin again. This looks and sounds promising. It's also nice to see Dekker in something new.

When he's good he's excellent. Mysterious Skin is one of the best films of the 2000's, and although flawed, I think Nowhere is just visually incredible. Look forwarding to this!
