As SpectreVision and Artsploitation lead up to the October 18 theatrical premiere of Jason Banker’s Toad Road, a new clip from the film and two character posters with two different treatments each have been released.
The film has been described as a hallucinatory and hypnotic odyssey through mutating realities, drug use, urban legends, and nightmares. 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. 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, explains the release.
The film opens Friday, October 18th at the Arena Cinema in Los Angeles, and in New York at Cinema Village on Friday, October 25th.
Fans and audiences outside of New York and Los Angeles are invited to bring Toad Road to their cities via Tugg.com, a innovative new platform that that gives audiences the power of choice in movie-going by bringing an on-demand experience to local theaters.
