In this black comedy, Jim is an unsatisfied middle aged man on vacation with his family at Disney World. While his family frolics through the park and is enthralled with the sights and sounds of Disney, Jim finds himself inexplicably obsessed with two French teenage girls. The park environment soon turns to something more sinister as Jim uncovers its secrets. Jim must protect his adventurous kids, placate his suspicious wife and defend himself against the happiest place on Earth. Written by
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 »
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 »

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

My first thought was what the *beep* did I just watch? It was however, a very interesting, well made film that, to me anyways, didn't make much sense.
At times hilarious, genuinely frightening, surreal, and creepy, this black and white film seems to tell some sort of message about Disneyworld, though I'll be damned if I know what it is.
That's all I'll say about the movie, which in fact takes place in Disneyworld in it's entirety. If David Lynch and Terry Gilliam had a baby, and that baby grew up in an insane asylum watching Disney movies day in and day out, this is the film I would expect that individual to eventually write and direct.
I'd also like to add that the movie had nothing to do with pedophilia, as at least one other review suggests. The topic isn't even touched on.
I wasn't bored for a minute and I would definitely recommend this one to any fans of fantasy/horror. 8/10.
