Contents

Rainbow Drive was given a very limited theatrical release. It was released in America and the UK on VHS, which is now out-of-print. The film was nominated for one Mystfest award, for "Best Film" (Bobby Roth). The soundtrack was scored by Tangerine Dream, but was never released as a stand-alone release. The title track was later included on the bootleg Prayer of Quiet Dreams in 1993.

Plot

Mike Gallagher is one of Los Angeles' top cops, who is acting head of Hollywood's homicide division. But Gallagher is soon wrenched out of his orderly existence into a dirty world of killing and corruption. Gallagher's affair with a married woman leads him to stumble across a vicious scene of multiple murder on L.A. highway Rainbow Drive. Gallagher senses something strange when reinforcements arrive even before he has called them. When his superiors freeze him out of the case, Gallagher begins his own investigations. With the help of mysterious ally Laura Demming, Gallagher draws closer to the truth, and danger moves closer to his partner and mistress. His investigation propels him into a web of drugs and vice, corruption and cover-up - an intricate web that implicates some of the city's most senior figures.
