Release Date Announced for A24’s Hallucinatory Hyper-Sexual CLIMAX

climaxposter - Release Date Announced for A24’s Hallucinatory Hyper-Sexual CLIMAX

Of all the film I couldn’t see at this year’s Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, I regret missing Gaspar Noé’s Climax most of all. But I’ll be honest: When it came to choosing between the latest film by the director of Irreversible (yeah, that Irreversible) and a dark horror comedy by Nicolas Pesce, the director of The Eyes of My Mother (Piercing) it was a relatively easy choice—at the time.

My friends and colleagues who did attend the screenings of Climax were gobsmacked, and I soon wished I had been there to experience it with them. The plot revolves around a troupe of dancers who drink sangria laced with LSD and the show commenced with everyone in the audience being offered a shot. The cinematography, as it was described to me, actually approximated the feeling of being on a drug trip—and not necessarily a good one!

We’ll all finally have the chance to see Climax when A24 gives the film a limited theatrical run beginning March 1st,2019. For a film like this, I’m almost certain it’s best seen in the dark on a big screen, so don’t wait until it hits VOD to see it. You can read the official synopsis and give the trailer for Climax a spin below.

Synopsis:
When a troupe of dancers unknowingly drink LSD-laced sangria, their jubilant, off-the-grid rehearsal descends into a shocking nightmare as one by one they fall prey to the savage consequences of a collective psychedelic breakdown.
