'Escape from Tomorrow': The movie Disney doesn't want you to see
Hailed as "the ultimate guerrilla film" by many, "Escape from Tomorrow" is a black and white, independent horror film shot exclusively -- and secretly -- inside Disney World and Disneyland by first-time writer-director Randy Moore.
How did he do it? With two Canon cameras on video mode, so he and the cast and crew would blend in with park visitors. Everyone communicated and read scripts on their iPhones, while occasionally recording sound. The actors also had recorders taped to their bodies, resulting in hours and hours worth of audio to sift through.
The movie received high praise earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival and it was even handpicked by the late Roger Ebert at his 15th annual film festival back in April.
Moore and Co. thought they would have a major lawsuit on their hands and their movie would never see the light of day, but the usually litigation-friendly Walt Disney Co. is instead saying nothing (so far), not wanting to give the film any more attention.
The movie involves around a father who, on his family's last day at Disney World, learns he gets laid off. What follows is his downward spiral into paranoia at The Happiest Place on Earth.
