Okay, I’ll bite. I’ve been hearing about the film Escape from Tomorrow since its debut at Sundance and how it was strange enough to be Shock material, so I’ll give it a mention here.
The film recently received a poster and a release date. The movie, filmed secretly at Disney World, marks the directorial debut of Randy Moore and opens October 11th in select theaters and on VOD.
The details: An epic battle begins when a middle-aged American husband and father of two learns that he has lost his job. Keeping the news from his nagging wife and wound-up children, he packs up the family and embarks on a full day of park hopping amid enchanted castles and fairytale princesses.
Soon, the manufactured mirth of the fantasy land around him begins to haunt his subconscious. An idyllic family vacation quickly unravels into a surrealist nightmare of paranoid visions, bizarre encounters, and an obsessive pursuit of a pair of sexy teenage Parisians.
From a press release: “Chillingly shot in black and white, ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW dissects the mythology of artificial perfection while subversively attacking our culture’s obsession with mass entertainment.”
