The first trailer for “Escape From Tomorrow” proves horror can lurk anywhere — even the Happiest Place on Earth.
Writer/director Randy Moore’s black-and-white surreal fantasy follows an unemployed father (Roy Abramsohn) having a psychological breakdown while vacationing with his family at the Disney theme park, where the independent film was shot without permission from the company.
The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year to mixed reviews — but everyone agreed it was definitely something different.
“People come here because they want to feel safe,” an unseen female voice explains while juxtaposed to images of the family enjoying a few of the park’s most famous attractions. “Bad things happen everywhere. Especially here.”
Cinetic, the New York-based management and sales company that represents Moore, will release the film in select theaters and on VOD on Oct. 11.
