Beyond the Black Rainbow (2010)

Mongrel Media (Canada)
Directed by Panos Cosmatos
My rating: 3 stars out of 4
(Blu-ray, Magnet Releasing)

A teenage girl is kept prisoner by a doctor who runs a New Age type of institute originating from experiments with drugs in the 1960s. They both possess psychic powers and may be related. He takes drugs that keep him from aging while she is given some to keep sedated. She eventually escapes the institute but he pursues the outside world for a final confrontation. Stylish throwback to sci fi and horror films of the 1970s and 1980s will please fans of that era. It doesn't bring anything new to the formula, but is very entertaining and well made.
