From director Gaspar Noé comes a hypnotic, hallucinatory, and ultimately hair-raising depiction of a party that descends into delirium over the course of one wintry night.

In Climax, a troupe of young dancers gather in a remote and empty school building to rehearse. Following an unforgettable opening performance lit by virtuoso cinematographer Benoît Debie and shot by Noé himself, the troupe begins an all-night celebration that turns nightmarish as the dancers discover they've been pounding cups of sangria laced with potent LSD.

Tracking their journey from jubilation to chaos and full-fledged anarchy, Noé observes crushes, rivalries, and violence amid a collective psychedelic meltdown.

  • 1 star "STUPID and not at all scary, but good disco music from the past. It's not good just because it's foreign. Lots of stupid morons, like all other horrors... it just doesn't jive in the real world, even one with the smallest IQs... locking your kid in a HIGH VOLTAGE CLOSET???? TO KEEP IT SAFE???? WTF???"
