  • Description

    Mike Hodges (Flash GordonGet Carter) wrote and directed this supernatural chiller as a meditation on the human race’s ability to destroy the world, a gothic tale of suspense and the occult, guaranteed to send shivers down your spine.

    Martha Travis (Rosanna Arquette, Pulp FictionCrash) is a travelling clairvoyant on the road with her sceptic father (Jason Robards, Once Upon a Time in the WestMagnolia). During a séance Martha communicates a message from a dead man to his wife in the audience. Shocked the wife insists her husband is still alive. Later that evening the husband is killed by a ruthless assassin. As Martha foresees more and more tragic events journalist Gary Wallace (Tom Hulce, AmadeusAnimal House) follows the pair in pursuit of a hot story… with catastrophically eerie results.

    Sent direct-to-video by its struggling distributor on initial release, Black Rainbow unfairly never got the exposure it deserved, newly restored from the original negative audiences can now discover the darkness at the end of the rainbow, as never before.
