Sometimes a title will come along, however, that you KNOW you'll likely never see on the big screen. Indies movies especially tend to skew away from the mainstream, often resulting in the kind of controversy and attention that makes for great headlines, but not substantive box office grosses. For Escape from Tomorrow, that came at its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival from the revelation that the psychedelic horror/comedy had been shot guerrilla-style (basically sneaking around and filming when nobody was looking) at he Happiest Place on Earth. Disney has always been protective of its intellectual property, and the idea of making an a somewhat anti-Disney movie on its own front lawn was bound to make some waves. Despite my interest in seeing this, I however judged that pressure from the Magic Kingdom Walt built would keep theaters from showing this much-talked-about little movie, and that I'd likely have to wait for a DVD release.
