Set in the strange and oppressive emotional landscape of the year 1983, BEYOND THE BLACK RAINBOW is a Reagan-era fever dream inspired by hazy childhood memories of midnight movies and Saturday morning cartoons. From the producer of Machotaildrop, RAINBOW is the outlandish feature film debut of writer and director Panos Cosmatos. Featuring a hypnotic analog synthesizer score by Jeremy Schmidt of “Sinoia Caves” and “Black Mountain,” RAINBOW is a film experience for the senses.

“Pays homage to Kubrick, Argento, Cronenberg, Altered States, John Carpenter synth scores, ‘70s sci-fi and ‘80s fantasy, and mind-boggling, hyper-stylized madness, while blazing its own uniquely insane trail.” – Nick Schrager, Lessons of Darkness

“ONE SERIOUS HEAD TRIP. Panos Cosmatos emerges as a bold new visionary in science-fiction filmmaking.” – James Marsh, Twitch

“3.5 STARS (out of 4). Visually dazzling and insanely dense –the cinematic equivalent of LSD. When you see this film in theaters, sit as close to the screen as you can.” Simon Abrams, Slant

“AN IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE—a singular, vividly imaginative debut.” – Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter
