Ahead of its UK premiere at this year’s Arrow Video FrightFest on the 27th of August, Gasper Noe’s sexy dance feature has seen a new trailer release.

The cast of non-actors and professional dancers – Voguers, Krumpers and Waackers – where scouted from the underground Paris ballroom scene and YouTube dance videos. The film also stars Sofia Boutella (Hotel Artemis, The Mummy).

“Set to an almost continuous score of vintage techno, house and electronic tracks, the soundtrack flows through the after-party with the likes of Cerrone, The Rolling Stones, Soft Cell and M/A/R/R/S segueing into Aphex Twin, Daft Punk and Dopplereffekt as the drug-induced pandemonium takes hold”.

Climax Official Synopsis

Following a group of young dancers coming together to prepare for a US tour, CLIMAX individually presents the eclectic and diverse troupe before seamlessly blending them into a hypnotic collective in a dazzling dance number. Post-performance, the after-party begins, Emmanuelle (Claude Gajan Maull) serves up some sangria and Daddy (Kiddy Smile) hits the decks for their last chance to party before they hit the road on tour. 

Soon reality starts to slip out of focus and the nightmare begins. The celebratory punch-bowl has been spiked with hallucinogens and the real trip is about to begin, as some orgiastically reach euphoric heights and others descend on a hellish odyssey to psychosis.
