ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW is a bizarre nightmare/
that it comes out to be a movie that sucks you into its grasp until the very
end. I didn’t know what to think of it
for the first ten minutes, but its black and white look in addition to the
screwed up parents dragged me into a phantasmagorical Disney World that you
want to sometimes escape from and other times want to remain in this weird
world where Disney World isn’t quite like the happy land you see on the
outside. It is a satire/ parody done as
a guerilla film shoot without the permission of Disney.
A family of four is on vacation at Disney World. The father is trying to enjoy one more good
day after he finds out he has been fired.
He is soon thrust in a world of surreal paranoid visions and bizarre
encounters while he also follows a pair of French teenagers whether he is with
his little son or daughter. His wife is
a little frigid as it seems their relationship once saw better days. It descends
into the realm of fever dream in
what many people consider to be one of the happiest places in the world (with
its Orwellian security and surveillance).
Audio commentary with writer/ director Randy
cinematographer Lucas Lee Graham
Audio commentary with actors Roy Abramsohn and
doing the track in character which is funny at times
THE MAKING OF ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW chronicles
the journey of
making this film as a guerilla shoot to getting it into Sundance while dealing
with the clearance issues of making sure it was seen as a parody.
The theatrical posters are all great in the poster
while the theatrical trailer gives a hint of the experience you will be in when
you watch this movie.
ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW is a bizarre fever dream which is something unique
to witness that it will linger around in your head after you have seen it
because you can’t unsee the uniqueness of this movie.
