Seen: On dvd on our projector set-up, rented from netflix.
So I missed Beyond the Black Rainbow when it played a weekend here, which was a bummer but hey, it happens. A friend brought it to my attention ages ago when he sent me the trailer, saying it sounded like Lost/Dharma Initiative-type stuff, which I am totally into! So I finally got around to seeing it, and dang it is sort of Dharma Initiative-y but it's more in the psychedelic horror vein of Altered States and other weird movies from the 70s and 80s. So, appropriately, I wrote about it for 366 Weird Movies! We think it might have a shot for Weirdest Movie of 2012, but who knows. It has absolutely fantastic visuals and I loved how creepy the main character was, plus the synth-heavy soundtrack is wonderful. It's a bit abstruse, though, and slow-moving.
Anyway please head over and read my full review!
