Trivia

Though set in Walt Disney World, most scenes set in the Magic Kingdom were distinctly filmed at Disneyland, with the resulting park seen in the film being an amalgam of the two parks. See more »

Goofs

When Jim is talking to his boss on his cell phone, he looks down from the balcony. You can tell that their room is on a high floor. But when the family leaves the room and goes to the elevator it has a number 2 near the elevator door, indicating the scene was filmed in the 2nd floor hallway. See more »

Man: Listen to me. Don't let your imagination run wild. It's a transitional period.
Jim: So, you're firing me for no real reason, then?
Man: Well, there's a little more to it than that.

Ambitious, but yet not enough
13 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After reading just a few quick things on this and how it was similar to both The Shining and Eraserhead (two of my favorite horror films ever), I was quite excited for this. It looked like an indie experimental horror film that I would love. Sadly, while I think there are some very interesting things in here, or things that could be interesting, it never really amounted to much. Not enough horror, not enough intrigue. I think the acting was solid and the story decent enough, I just wish it had gone to further places, done more stuff with the concept. It's not bad and it's sort of really memorable, but I can't really say I liked it overall. Really mixed on it.
