A couple years back, Canadian director Panos Cosmatos released a movie called Beyond The Black Rainbow. From the trailer above, it hearkens back to movies of the late 70s, featuring floods of intense color, a futuristic institute to hold crazy people and a young girl trying to escape her deranged therapist. Sounds good so far, right? Here’s the synopsis from Wikipedia:
Deep within the mysterious Arboria Institute, a disturbed and beautiful girl (Eva Allan) is held captive by a doctor in search of inner peace. Her mind is controlled by a sinister technology. Silently, she waits for her next session with deranged therapist Dr. Barry Nyle (Michael Rogers). If she hopes to escape, she must journey through the darkest reaches of The Institute… but Nyle won’t easily part with his most gifted and dangerous creation.
I guess distributor Magnet Releasing will be putting out the film some time this year, which is good news. A lot of the time, Magnet releases their films straight to Netflix, so hopefully we’ll be able to watch this gem soon.
