Dir: Gregg Araki; 2010; USA; Comedy / Sci-Fi; Thomas Dekker, James Duval
I’m a bit confused about this. One website describes it as a film about the sexual awakening of a group of college students so it’s not normally the kind of film that I would expect to see at Sitges.
However, it seemed to stir up a fair bit of controversy at Cannes and it’s also showing at this year’s Frightfest so there must be something slightly off-kilter about it.
A huge box was ticked for us when it was described as being a Twin Peaks for the noughties. Huge words, but it’s meant that this one might get our hard earned cash.
There’s no trailer available yet but there are some clips on YouTube, first one is below:
One thought on “Kaboom – Our Sitges Preview”
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.
