Toad Road Coming to New York and Miami

Posted by monique On October - 21 - 2013 0 Comment

Artsploitation Films, Random Bench and Elijah Wood’s genre-themed product company, SpectreVision, is bringing horror fans the haunting film “Toad Road.” The film was released in Los Angeles at Arena Cinema Oct. 18 and will play through Oct 24. But if you aren’t in Los Angeles, there will be other places you can check out the movie. Look for “Toad Road” in New York at Cinema Village Oct. 25 through Oct. 31 and in Miami Nov. 14 at AMC Aventura 24.

The film, directed by Jason Banker, blends documentary footage with horror elements to create a mesmerizing film experience. Here’s the official synopsis for the film.

“A different kind of American independent horror film, the hypnotic Toad Road, presented by Elijah Wood and his SpectreVision production company, unfolds like a hallucinatory cross between the sexual candor of Larry Clark and Harmony Korine, and the backwoods creep-out of The Blair Witch Project. Young James kills time with his small town druggie friends, engaging in excessive chemical intake, until he meets sweet new arrival Sara. But just as James wants to abandon the narcotics life, Sara wants him to take her further into mind-altering experimentation…and she also wants him to introduce her to the sinister local legend of Toad Road, a spot deep in the forest that is apparently home to the Seven Gates of Hell. Writer-director Jason Banker’s debut is a unique fusion of documentary-like realism, and otherworldly, haunting rural terror. Unlike any other film you’ll see this year, Toad Road is a mesmerizing trip.”

“Toad Road” stars Sara Anne Jones, James Davidson, Jim Driscoll, Whitleigh Higuera, Damon Johansen, Andy Martin, Scott Rader, Jamie Siebold and Donnie Simmons. The film has won Best Director & Best Actor at the 2012 Fantasia International Film Festival and Best Picture at the Lausanne Underground Film & Music Festival.
