Weekend Movie Guide 02/04: College Killers Go Kaboom!
The Roommate brings back fond memories of freshman year: new friends, independence, wild parties and murderous roommates. The film's perfectly poised for a gimmick release in September - and dumping it this early in the year means Sony can get the DVD/Blu Ray/VOD on shelves in time for homecoming. Kaboom bursts into the Nuart with an even crazier college caper, which may culminate in the end of existence. Written & directed by Gregg Araki (The Doom Generation, Mysterious Skin), the trailer bears his trademarks: highly cynical, highly sexual, lowly polished, and ample doses of hallucinogenics.
