Pick or Pan of the Week: “Kaboom”

KaboomPICK KaboomA sci-fi film directed by Gregg Araki and starring Haley Bennett and Thomas Dekker which tells the jaw-dropping tale of a group of polysexual youths whose amorous escapades run rampant on a college campus where the sexual orientations are as undecided as the majors. The cinematic cocktail of this film is one part softcore porn, one part serial killer thriller, and one part apocalyptic meltdown – shaken, not stirred. Has your head exploded yet?

In typical Araki fashion, Kaboom takes the lid off the Id and lets the libido run wild. It’s the kind of film that you’re bound to either love or loathe. But either way, Kaboom is sure to get you talking. And isn’t that what film is all about? Go see for yourself.

“Kaboom is an erotic blast of sinful flesh, fun and fantasy that you don’t want to stop.” ~Peter Travers

One response to “Pick or Pan of the Week: “Kaboom”

  1. I was quite looking forward to this, so now that I have seen it my disappointment is even bigger!
    this is a completely pointless, wit-less film. It’s un-funny, not scary, and not even the sex scenes managed to be sexy.
    Very disappointing and a waste of Thomas Dekker who has actually a very interesting face and he could be rather good in a better film…
    I’ll give Araki one last chance then I’ll begin to think that “Mysterious Skin” was just a lucky mistake in an otherwise disastrous filmography.
