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.
