Thanks to IFC Films, we finally have the official trailer debut for Gregg Araki's "playfully perverse, refreshingly rude gonzo teen fantasy" Kaboom just ahead of its simultaneous U.S. premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and on-demand airings beginning on January 21st courtesy of Sundance Selects. Synopsis:
Can't make it to Utah this year for the 2011 Sundance Film Festival? Well, thanks to Sundance Selects, the theatrical and video-on-demand film label, five films being screened at the fest will simultaneously be available nationwide, on demand, on most major cable systems. Two seems to qualify as genre films, but the others sound worthy of a bit of attention as well.
As you no doubt noticed, Uncle Creepy has been busily bringing you early news and photos from several of the recently announced films that will be playing at Sundance 2011, both in competition and out. But he hasn't quite covered everything yet so here's a list of all the even slightly genre-related offerings that are a part of the upcoming Sundance film festival (running January 20-30).
It was way back in May when IFC Midnight acquired writer/director Antoine Blossier's debut feature Proie (Prey), and finally, come December we'll be able to watch it either On Demand (starting on the 1st) or in selected theatres (as of the 3rd).
A slight change has occurred to the lineup of the UK's popular horror film festival Film4 FrightFest due to the withdrawal of Kaboom by its director Gregg Araki. But no worries; Plan B is now in effect, and writer/director Brett Anstey's Damned by Dawn will be screening in its place.
