ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW is a bizarre nightmare/ fever dream 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).

 

SPECIAL FEATURES:

Audio commentary with writer/ director Randy Moore and cinematographer Lucas Lee Graham

 

Audio commentary with actors Roy Abramsohn and Elena Schuber 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 gallery while the theatrical trailer gives a hint of the experience you will be in when you watch this movie.

 

FINAL ANALYSIS:  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.
