If you already thought that Escape From Tomorrow sounded amazing just by the description—the fantasy-horror film directed by Randy Moore follows the horrible last day of a family's trip to a Disney theme park—then boy, have we got a treat for you. A full trailer for the film, shot guerilla-style throughout Disneyland and Disney World, that proves this is absolutely the movie that the Walt Disney Company does not want you to see.
As promised in the description, the trailer shows the film will follow a family who is spending the last day of their vacation at a Disney theme park. Something goes terribly wrong, however, and the family is taken by the park—because, turns out, the theme park is evil. Some kid gets demonically possessed, and also this happens:
According to The Week, it was tough to get this film off the ground, so it's a miracle there's even a finished product:
Writer/director Randy Moore shot the film on location at both Disneyland and Disney World without permission, and used a variety of evasive techniques to throw the company's security team off his trail. (Escape From Tomorrow was shot with handheld cameras, which enabled its skeleton crew to disguise themselves as tourists, and the cast read their scripts on iPhones.)
Despite its awesome, it's not clear if this film will ever see the light of day—Producers Distribution Agency has already announced that they're going to take their chances and release the film to limited theaters and on demand starting October 11, but it's highly possible Disney's legal team will intervene at some point soon. In its favor, it's already premiered at Sundance and Ebertfest.
