'Escape From Tomorrow' Trailer: Bad Things Happen Everywhere, Including Copyright-Protected, Character-Based Theme Parks

By Jodi Clager | Trailers | September 12, 2013 | Comments ()


Escape From Tomorrow is the directorial debut from Randy Moore that was filmed after hours covertly at that theme park. You know the one. The one with the rodent mascot? Mmmhmm.

Anyway, Jim White (Roy Abramsohn) takes his family to this happy place for a great day of fun and spending money. Alas, Jim was laid off before getting to the park but keeps this information to himself for the sake of his family. Could this be why Jim begins hallucinating? Or is he hallucinating at all?

A lot of people are excited about this low budget horror movie, but the trailer makes me only “meh” right now. I hope it surprises me, but with the way critics like to salivate over horror movies that aren’t actually scary or surprising in any way (Ahem, The Conjuring, ahem.) doesn’t make me any less skeptical. If you are so inclined, Escape From Tomorrow will be in theaters and on VOD on Oct. 11.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Looks terrible. So I take back my "tempted by the movie poster" comment a few days ago.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Please tell me that the header pic is not the mascot for the 2020 Olympics.

  • dagnabbit

    Well the acting is certainly horrific.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    How is Disney not blocking this from being released?
    Also, as a die-hard fan of all things Disney (I know, lame) I want this to be good, but...eh it just kinda looks hokey. Still, kudos for getting it all shot in the park without the Mickey Gestapo dragging you into the underground tunnel network.

    FYI it wasn't filmed after hours. They shot it guerrilla-style during park hours and somehow managed to not get caught.

  • BWeaves

    So, the film makers were on drugs? This looks amazingly like the "drunk" scene from Dumbo.

    It was bad water in the Little Land of Duff ride.

    I think we have a new picture for the "Where is your god now?" meme.
