Disney from the dark side. Like nothing you've ever seen, Randy Moore's directorial debut is a bold and ingenious trip to the happiest place on earth, where newly unemployed, middle-aged American (played by Roy Abramsohn) embarks on a full day of park hopping amid enchanted castles and fairytale princesses with his nagging wife and two wound-up children. Soon, the manufactured mirth of the fantasy land around him begins to haunt his subconscious and the idyllic family vacation quickly unravels into a surrealist nightmare of paranoid visions, bizarre encounters and an obsessive pursuit of a pair of sexy teenage Parisians. Chillingly shot in black and white to create a neo-noir effect that has led critics to compare Escape from Tomorrow to the work of Roman Polanski and David Lynch.
Randy was born in Lake Bluff, Illinois, a small town known for its famous hot dog joint, Scooters, and its role smuggling alcohol during the prohibition. Randy studied filmmaking at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Columbia College Chicago; and Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL - where he graduated valedictorian. Over the years he has worked as a story editor in Los Angeles and has been honored with such awards as the Nicholl Fellowship in screenwriting (quarter-finalist), "Fade In" magazine's script award (2nd place), and Writemovies.com (Grand Prize). Escape from Tomorrow is his first feature film.
