Only a few days ago we let you know that TOAD ROAD, a trippy low-budget film executive produced by Elijah Wood, will be getting an October release from Artspolitation Films. If you're wondering what the film may look like, and what it's central premise is, then the below clip should offer you some help on both fronts.
Toad Road earned praise from audiences and critics alike last fall at the influential Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal, where it won awards for “Best Director” (Jason Banker) and “Best Actor” (James Davidson). Check out our Fantasia review for the film right HERE.
Toad Road is a local urban legend about a path in the woods rumored to contain the 7 gates that lead to hell. The film follows a group of friends with few inhibitions and no boundaries perilously mixing drug use with self discovery. In Toad Road, verité footage, drug use, drunken pranks, and personal issues comprise a disturbing portrait of contemporary youth culture where the lines between perception and reality are blurred with frightening results.
Artsploitation Films will bring TOAD ROAD to theaters this October. Following the film’s theatrical run, the company will release it on DVD and VOD as well as in the digital marketplace.
