'Beyond the Black Rainbow' Dated for Blu-ray

Posted Wed Sep 5, 2012 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The sci-fi thriller from director Panos Cosmatos arrives on Blu-ray next week.

In an announcement to retailers, Magnolia says 'Beyond the Black Rainbow' is coming to Blu-ray on September 11.

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.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: Audio Commentary with Director Panos Cosmatos, Extended Scenes, Behind the Scenes, Making of Beyond The Black Rainbow, and Original Trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
