Surreal Horror Film Shot In Disney Theme Parks Without Permission Gets Theatrical And VOD Release Date

I’ve been fascinated by Randy Moore’s Escape From Tomorrow since reports first burst out of Sundance. The film is set, and some of it was shot, in Disney theme park space, making use of their IP and showing their trademarks on screen, and all without permission.

Here’s an official blurb for the film:

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.

An epic battle for a man’s soul, I understand. I’m told that the movie bites into some huge themes, and hard. There were comparisons to the work of David Lynch – but then again, there so often are.

I thought there was every chance that this film would never see a commercial release, but according to The LA Times, PDA Media have plans to push the film out into American cinemas and onto VOD come October 11th.

The film has secured so-called E&O insurance, which protects distributors against liabilities, and legal experts have moreover said that Disney would have a weak case if it tried to stop it or collect damages–though the company could still decide to try to bog the release down in lawsuits, a move that no doubt would also fuel publicity for the film.

I do wonder what Disney’s lawyers might do. Hopefully nothing. And hopefully PDA have the good taste to not try and exploit Disney imagery in a tacky or exploitative way while promoting the film.
