I was lucky enough to see the film at Fantastic Fest this year, and as a lifelong Disneyland-goer, I was totally fascinated to see how they managed to shoot in the most artificially “happiest place on earth” and not get sued out of existence. To give you a tease, here are the five most un-Disney things I saw in Escape From Tomorrow. (Warning! Spoilers ahead!)
Escape From Tomorrow is the film that shouldn't exist. Shot entirely on location in Disneyland and Walt Disney World, director Randy Moore and director of photography Lucas Lee Graham filmed Escape From Tomorrow guerilla-style, without permission from anyone at Disney.
It's the movie that everyone assumed would never get distribution. Escape From Tomorrow is a surrealistic neo-noir film about a father who starts to lose his mind while on a family vacation to Disney World.
