Looks like one hell of a party.
It’s interesting to see what can come out of the Cannes Film Festival. Sometimes its good, others are bad and some are just so insane they must be seen to be believed. One such example of the third category looks to be Gapsar Noe’s newest film, simply titled Climax. Seemingly coming out of nowhere. this surreal mashup of horror and musical has made the rounds at the festival with comparisons being made to films like Andrzej Żuławski’s Possession to recent contemporaries like Darren Aronofsky’s mother!. Check out the first trailer:
We also have a synopsis:
In the mid 90’s, 20 urban dancers join together for a three-day rehearsal in a closed-down boarding school located at the heart of a forest to share one last dance. They then make one last party around a large sangria bowl. Quickly, the atmosphere becomes charged and a strange madness will seize them the whole night. If it seems obvious to them that they have been drugged, they neither know by who nor why. And it’s soon impossible for them to resist to their neurosises and psychoses, numbed by the hypnotic and the increasing electric rhythm of the music. While some feel in paradise, most of them plunge into hell.
No release date has been announced yet. Here’s hoping we get one soon.
