Escape From Tomorrow Review


In a world of fake castles and anthropomorphic rodents, an epic battle begins when an unemployed father's sanity is challenged by a chance encounter with two underage girls on holiday.

Randy Moore is the writer and director of this psychological horror film. Escape From Tomorrow (2013) contains sex, nudity, twisted violence, gore, bad language, frightening, scary scenes and fantasy. There is also a lot of alcohol use by one man who constantly drinks throughout the entire movie. This horror movie received a great deal of attention because most of the movie was shot at Walt Disney World and Disneyland. The director, Randy Moore did not get approval from the owners and operators of The Walt Disney Company. Some scenes were shot on handheld video camera and scripts were read from phones. Disney became aware of this film but ignored it for some reason and let it be. The director/writer really got lucky that they didn’t get a lawsuit from The Walt Disney Company.

Escape From Tomorrow is about a middle age father name Jim White (Roy Abramsohn - Doobious Sources, Area 51, W.M.D.) who takes his family on vacation to Disneyland. Jim receives a phone call on his vacation at the Disney theme park from his boss and was informed that he has been laid off. He keeps this secret to himself so that his family can have a fun filled vacation with the remaining time that is left. Jim becomes infatuated with two French girls as their path crossed many times during the day. Jim’s son, Elliot (Jack Dalton) threw up after going on the Space Mountain ride and his wife Emily (Elena Schuber - Metropolis II: Highway to Heaven, Killer Kids, Killer Outbreaks) took their son back to the resort. Jim stays at the theme park with his daughter Sarah (Katelynn Rodriguez - I Am Death, American Horror Story, Nefarious: Merchant of Souls) in pursuit of following the French girls without anyone suspecting him of doing so. Later, Emily finds out about Jim’s interest in the French girls and confronts him about it.

One of the French girls invites Jim to join them but he declined the invitation and the girl spat in his face. From this point on the movie becomes interesting. Towards the ending of the movie, it appears that he caught cat flu when the young girl spat on his face and soon after coughs up fur-balls and died in his bathroom. There is more to the story after Jim died and you will just have to watch the movie to see what happens - it was a bit confusing but it makes you think…

This movie was well made but had no real flowing storyline where you can connect to the characters. There is a lot of unexplained loose ends and a lot of scenes that leave you thinking, what does that have to do with the movie? It had great CGI and the actors were great also.
