Niche film blogs buzzed about this faux-Regean-era, SciFi-ish, psychotropic film for awhile, but Beyond The Black Rainbow is finally gearing up for a limited theatrical release. Here’s a trailer. Here’s a young heroine tripping balls in an experimental “therapy” compound.
The feature film debut of Panos Cosmatos, the official pitch goes like so:
Deep within the mysterious Arboria Institute, a disturbed and beautiful girl (Allan) is held captive by a doctor in search of inner peace. Her mind controlled by a sinister technology. Silently, she waits for her next session with deranged therapist Dr. Barry Nyle (Rogers). If she hopes to escape, she must journey through the darkest reaches of The Institute… but Nyle wonʼt easily part with his most gifted and dangerous creation.
Also, there’s drugs. Lots and lots of drugs. And protagonists, antagonists, plot development or what not, but you get the point. Looks immersive and impressive.
