Plot Summary:

Indie veteran Gregg Araki returns to the spotlight with "Kaboom," a hyper-stylized "Twin Peaks" for the Coachella Generation, featuring a gorgeous, super-hot young cast. The film is a wild, sex-drenched, comical 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. "Kaboom" will make its US premiere at this year's Sundance Film Festival and is writer/director Araki's eighth film there since his breakthrough "The Living End," including "The Doom Generation" to his masterpiece "Mysterious Skin."
