Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.
"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, it is 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.

Critic Reviews for Kaboom
Shot in blinding colors, with an eye for artifice and a fixation on flesh, Kaboom is one happy, horny movie.
Kaboom plays out like a a ridiculously campy, and poorly written comic book. It's not very coherent and has a terrible ending.
Araki has crafted an entertaining, violently funny movie that's amongst his best work yet.
After walking out of KABOOM, I wanted to take a nice, hot shower to wash myself of this filthy film, but holy hell I had a blast.
there's no method to Kaboom's utter-insanity; it crumbles badly in the final minutes and reveals its central mystery as little more than a meaningless whimsy.
Audience Reviews for Kaboom
A disjointed film in which everything seems painfully arbitrary and with no sense of purpose, suffering from an unfocused script, a clumsy direction and an expository last scene - and it isn't funny as a hipster comedy nor intriguing enough as a mystery as it wants to be.
Kaboom is a schizophrenic melding of two different films. It presents a mildly entertaining, bizarro apocalyptic fable that is buried under a lot of drek. What a shame that everything is ultimately explained in a hastily executed wrap up in the last 10 minutes. The explosive streams of vernacular coming from the mouths of the entire cast is a recklessly spoken explosion of words meant to clarify what we've been watching. It renders the whole account as arbitrary and meaningless. I couldn't possibly do justice to the ridiculous conclusion. Perhaps the producers were running out of money and Araki had to quickly end this mess. I know you pretty much get what you deserve when you choose to watch a Gregg Araki flick, but good heavens, Kaboom is really out there, even for him.
Won't be for everyone, but I quite liked it. Visually pretty to look at with an attractive cast. The story is way out there, but anyone who's seen this director's work before knows what to expect - weirdness.
If you like a conventional storyline or are homophobic, you're probably better to avoid this, but those who like something a little different may find this interesting.
|London:||Think of it as a little girl dick, and treat it accordingly. Imagine what your dick likes. Kiss it. Tease it with your tongue. Suck it. Even nibble it a little. Just make sure to regard it with the ut-most care and respect. Which brings us to the number one golden rule of oral. Pay attention to how she's reacting. If she seems into something, keep doing that same thing over and over and over. It's about finding a rythm that she likes and sticking to it, until the job is done.|
|Stella:||Nice hat. Are we in Paris?|
|Stella:||You meet some guy on a nude beach and after five minutes you're downloading his hard drive in the back of a van. You're a slut.|
