“Escape from Tomorrow” a surreal horror film shot largely in guerrilla style un-sanctioned film making inside Walt Disney World and Disneyland now has a release date. After premiering at Sundance Film Festival, the film will see limited theatrical release and Video on Demand via FilmBuff beginning October 11th.
If you’re unfamiliar with the story, it takes place on a family’s vacation at Walt Disney World when the father learns he has lost his job. An epic personal battle begins when the unemployed father’s sanity is challenged by two underage girls on holiday.
Due to the surreptitious nature of the film, there was some thought that Disney would never allow it to see the light of day. I believe it’s obvious enough that this is not an official Disney film. And Disney has allowed videos made inside the park by guests to be sold online, so I’m not sure a legal challenge would hold up, but then I’m not a lawyer. Disney has made no official comment either way.

Is this a film you’re planning to see? How do you feel about the film makers shooting inside the parks without approval from Disney?
