Argentinian provocateur Gaspar Noé (Enter the Void, Irreversible) returns to breathtaking form with this thrilling street dance/horror hybrid about a dance party that plunges into drug-induced madness.
Claiming to be based on true events (!), the film follows a group of dancers in a closed-down boarding school whose post-rehearsal punchbowl is spiked with some unknown substance, sending them spinning into a spiral of lust, violence and self-destruction. Packed with truly sensational dancing (from a huge variety of styles - they vogue and krump their way to oblivion and then some) and set to a throbbing backdrop of vintage techno, house and electronic music (Cerrone, M/A/R/R/S, Daft Punk, Aphex Twin, Dopplereffekt and more), this is intoxicating, perverse pandemonium the likes of which you have never seen.
You want something truly fresh and new? You've got it - Climax has been described as a sort of "Step Up meets mother! meets Suspiria meets Paris is Burning". Noé has created another astonishing work of pure decadence and derangement in a way that only he can - we can't wait to see you stumble out of the cinema...
