This movie is completely mind fucking and seriously doesn't make any sense. Witch whose eyes turn red and can be defeated by water? WHAT? However it's extremely entertaining and one just can't stop watching it. When you get to the end you won't even be surprised anymore, because you will seriously be expecting anything and everything.

Compared to most Araki films, Kaboom is a pretty lightweight, but entertaining film. I have really become a Thomas Deller and Chris Zylka fan. They gave great performances.

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 ... (more)

" External Review @ Tiny Mix Tapes A supernatural sex comedy, is perhaps the best way to describe the film. I find that the more Gregg Araki films I watch the more I fall in love with him. He has an ability to blend movie cliches into a unique form. If you watched The Rules of Attraction (2002) and felt like gagging at the end... well Araki finally filmed the cure. While there is plenty of sex in the film. Don't rent this if your looking for a soft-core sex comedy that seems to littler the dvd"

"Pretty, trippy, hypersexual, and at times even fascinating, although during the final 20 minutes, it shifts gears in such a convoluted way that it feels jarring more than anything else. "

"Katsottu: 12.3.2011 Juuri näin. Araki todella palaa juurilleen. Kaboom on Nowheren tasoinen trippi, joka edustaa elokuvaa puhtaimmillaan. Tabujen rikkomisessa herra Araki on aina ollut omaa luokkaansa. Harvemmin kukaan uskaltaa näin voimakkaasti tuoda homoseksuaalisuutta tai muuta seksuaalista poikkeavuutta esille. Kokonaisuutena taidokas, surrealistinen ja hauska scifivaikutteinen elokuva. Kaboomin voi helposti laskea maailmanloppu filmien kirjavaan kastiin. Onhan Arakikin aikaisemmin tutkinu"
