Part time co-host, author Kristi Petersen Schoonover, joins Dark Discussions on a two part episode about a very interesting film entitled Escape From Tomorrow. The film, directed by new talent Randy Moore, was able to film a majority of the movie within Walt Disney’s amusement parks, something that has never been done before. Co-host Abe calls it guerilla film making. And yet the film is very much complete, and it is as far away from a rough cut that a movie can be.
Kristi, the author of the ghost story collection Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole: Tales From Haunted Disney World, is not only an expert on Disney, the company, the films, and the amusement parks, but she brings an insight to a movie that she calls more a “magical fantasy” than the horror genre that it has been marketed as.
With Kristi included, Dark Discussions answers listeners questions directly related to all that’s Disney as well as the main topic. Things discussed include Disney villains, unintentional creepy protagonists, what makes Small World in some ways as scary as Pirates of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion, scary parts of Disney movies, among other things before we discuss Escape From Tomorrow, a film that everyone can watch right now on Netflix.
