It’s been too long since we put a new VHS out under our Mondo Video label. Tomorrow, we will have a brand new release that we’re very excited about… Panos Cosmatos’ stunning BEYOND THE BLACK RAINBOW. This movie is nuts. If you have never seen it, you can see the trailer HERE . Jay Shaw is responsible for the packaging design on the sleeve and it’s just gorgeous. You can see the artwork and read some of Jay’s thoughts on the film below:
I love Beyond the Black Rainbow. From the very first frame it is a film dripping with style and mood.Writer / Director Panos Cosmatos clearly has an affection for the filmmaking aesthetic of Michael Mann, Stanley Kubrick and David Cronenberg but here he creates something entirely unique and beautiful.Set in a fictional 1983, the story concerns a young girl named Elena who’s being held captive by an evil doctor in a research facility called The Arboria Institute.The film is a hypnotic journey through the fever of control and the power of the human mind.Cosmatos’ visual juxtaposition of strict geometry with free form organic creation is the inspiration for this cover.Jay
We want to give a very special thanks to Panos Cosmatos for all of his involvement and help in making this happen. BEYOND THE BLACK RAINBOW will be available tomorrow, January 10, at a random time right HERE. Please follow us on Twitter for the on sale announcement.
