Did You Know?


According to an interview with Gregg Araki, MTV projected the budget for this TV series pilot to be $1.5 million. Instead of giving him that amount, they only gave him $700,000 and were hoping to find partners who would finance the difference. Araki offered to make the pilot for $700,000 and MTV took him up on it. After the pilot was shot, it was not picked up for broadcast. See more »

Between Nowhere and Kaboom
26 November 2013 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

SADLY there is no real official place to watch this lost pilot. But kinda like "Mulholland Drive" it feels like that nothing really got lost in terms of ideas, because "This is How the World Ends" feels like a mix of "Nowhere" and "Kaboom". There is a lot of Homage to "Nowhere" and even more elements which are later found in "Kaboom".

Well after all this said: If you love Araki (like me) you will enjoy this pilot a lot. Try to find it and enjoy another stylish-teenage-art-house-trash-fest from Gregg Araki.

Sadly "Kaboom" was the grand final of this kind of Araki-Movies. But then again ... we never really expected "Kaboom" to happen. So be happy until the world finally ends.

See you at the bitter End.
