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.
I've always thought people who had Disney-themed weddings were a little weird. But then I saw this couple's Haunted Mansion-themed wedding and changed my tune. These pictures are amazing, and it looks like the bride and groom (and their friends and family) went out of their way to recreate all the little details of Disneyland's Haunted Mansion.
Ever since I was little, I have loved Disneyland's Haunted Mansion. If only I had been born a little earlier, I probably would have had this game.
There's an awesome Tumblr site dedicated to detailed behind-the-scenes images from the legendary dark ride. Check out some sample pix!
Watch and listen as Pat Carroll, the voice of the evil Ursula, reads the “ghost host” narration in character at Spooky Empire's May-Hem Convention.
Australian designer Chad Lockwood has combined the two most iconic rides at Disneyland into one fascinating design.
Okay, it's not the actual Haunted Mansion at Disneyland, but it's about as close as you can get.
