Filmmaker Randy Moore shot this secretly at Disneyland in Los Angeles and Disney World in Florida without Disney’s knowledge or permission. I like it already.
I’m guessing Moore also did not spend $200 million on it.
Is this the surreal nightmare I’ve been longing for for all these years? I am cautiously giddy with anticipation.
I had heard something about a black and white movie clandestinely filmed at Disney World, but beyond that I didn’t know what to expect. I thought it was going to be some kind of gritty family drama about the kids’ disappointment with cheap fantasy or something. I must see this.
Something like this, maybe. A nightmarish hellscape where you can’t get dinner after 7:30: http://consumerist.com/2013/09/16/petition-claims-disneyland-paris-is-a-sad-wasteland-full-of-broken-rides-reheated-food/
Looks interesting, although I am surprised that the Disney lawyers did not fall all over these people like a ton of bricks.
Oh, that’s Disneyland Paris. I’d heard that it isn’t great, but I kind of assume that’s some sort of ironic French thing.
Disney has been surprisingly low-key about this film. I’ve been following it for a while, it’s been interesting to watch the story develop. The film’s wikipedia page has some fascinating information about how it was done, if you’re interested.
All that this trailer really says, though, is “horror story” — “shot in Disney spaces” — “black and white”. Is the script interesting, or does the location get to carry the narrative load? Can’t say…
