Escape From Tomorrow Trailer: An Unauthorized Disney Nightmare

escapefromtomorrow

Randy Moore’s Escape From Tomorrow has been making headlines ever since it premiered at Sundance back in January. The movie revolves around a middle-aged man who loses his job and, instead of breaking the news to his family, decides to pack up the kids and head to Disney World for a vacation. During the trip, however, the magic of the theme park slowly starts to wear off and he finds himself plagued by nightmarish visions and disturbing encounters.

Here’s the most interesting thing about the movie though: it was shot guerilla-style at both Disney World and Disneyland without Disney’s permission and without permission of the real people who appear in the background of the film. Strangely, it appears that Disney has decided not to pursue legal action and the movie will actually be getting a limited release next month. Escape From Tomorrow hits select theatres and VOD on Oct. 11th; check out the first trailer along with a clip after the jump and let us know what you think.

    Considering how protective Disney can be about their image, they must really be looking at this as great promo material for the Tower of Terror ride ;)
    The trailer is really intriguing. Feels like a mashup of film noir, fantasy, and possibly a psychological thriller. Who knew you could do a mashup with Disney World as the backdrop?

    Disney just doesn’t want to fall prey to the Streisand effect
