This October, Artsploitation Films, in association with Elijah Wood’s genre-themed production company, SpectreVision and Random Bench, will unleash the haunting and mesmerizing Toad Road via limited theatrical release.
The story follows a young college student who befriends a group of hard partying friends and finds herself drawn into the local legend of Toad Road – a pathway in the forest rumored to contain the seven gates that lead directly to Hell. Toad Road displays a disturbing portrait of contemporary youth culture where the lines between perception and reality are blurred with often frightening results.
The film is slated to open in Los Angeles on October 18th and October 25th in New York City.
Winning the Best Director and Best Actor awards at the 2012 Fantasia International Film Festival and Best Picture at the Lausanne Underground Film and Music Festival, director Jason Banker blends documentary footage with horror elements to create a cinematic experience like no other.
