Producers Distribution Agency will release Randy Moore’s “Escape From Tomorrow,” a horror film shot surreptitiously at several Disney theme parks.
“Escape,” which debuted at Sundance, will be released theatrically in select cities on Oct. 11 and be available via FilmBuff on VOD. PDA used a similar model in the distribution of Banksy’s doc “Exit Through the Gift Shop.”
Movie, shot in black and white, centers on a middle-aged American husband and father of two who learns he has lost his job. Keeping the news from his nagging wife and wound-up children, he embarks on a full day at a Disney theme park, where the family vacation quickly unravels into a surrealist nightmare.
The film was produced by Soojin Chung and Gioia Marchese.
Disney has not commented on the film.
Rob Nelson gave the film a strong review at Sundance: “Shot without permits at Disney World, “Escape From Tomorrow” is a sneakily subversive exercise in low-budget surrealism and anti-corporate satire.”
