Escape from Tomorrow

Following a cleverly striking but misleading poster for the Sundance indie Escape from Tomorrow, the film shot secretly at Disney World without the House of Mouse's permission, the first trailer has finally arrived. Once you see footage from the surreal horror vacation from hell, you'll wonder just why or how Disney isn't doing everything they can to stop this movie from getting released, but maybe they respect director Randy Moore's efforts in independent film. Anyway, most of the buzz around the film is because of how the film was shot, but it's a bit underwhelming and simply feels like a college thesis film. Watch it?

Here's the first trailer for Randy Moore's Escape from Tomorrow, originally via Trailer Addict:

Escape from Tomorrow is written and directed by Randy Moore. The film, secretly shot at Disney World, is described as a postmodern, surreal voyage into the bowels of "family" entertainment as a middle-aged father loses his sanity during a close encounter with two teenage girls on holiday, all while trying to keep a straight face with his family after losing his job on the first day of vacation. Roy Abramsohn, Elena Schuber, Katelynn Rodriguez, Annet Mahendru, Danielle Safady and Alison Lees-Taylor star in the film which premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and arrives in limited theaters starting on October 11th.

@Ethan, have you seen this film? What makes it feel like a college thesis film?

Yeah, I saw it at Sundance. It has some interesting ideas, but the quality of production and whatnot, mostly because of the guerrilla tactics employed to shoot the film at Disney World, make it feel cheap. Not to mention the story lacks any real punch and just feels weird for the sake of being odd. I admire the ambition and work that went into making this film, especially in secret at one of the world's largest theme parks, but that's the only reason the film has any real buzz.

This seems doofus.

This seems really interesting but I've said that so many times about movies I thought would be good and have been disappointed.
