Grade • C

DVD • The indie thriller "Escape From Tomorrow" comes apart under the weight of its overwrought premise, but as an example of guerrilla filmmaking, it’s a must-see.

A family is on vacation in Orlando, but the stressed-out dad (Roy Abramsohn) starts having menacing hallucinations while walking around Walt Disney World.

Writer-director Randy Moore’s loathing for all things Disney is evident and overwhelms the surreal storyline. Moore shot a good chunk of his movie on Disney property, without permission, and a film student could learn a thing or two in the way he cuts together his furtively collected footage with the stuff that’s faked.
