Elijah Wood’s SpectreVision, Artsploitation, and Random Bench present the release of Jason Banker’s Toad Road, winner of the Best Director and Best Actor awards at the 2012 Fantasia film festival, opening Friday Oct. 18 at the Arena Cinema in Los Angeles with a red-carpet premiere, with Elijah Wood, Jason Banker and James Davidson in attendance for the sold-out event.
The dark indie film runs for a week before moving to New York for a week’s run at Cinema Village beginning Oct. 25.
Released today are new character posters for Toad Road and a new clip in anticipation of the film’s theatrical release this Friday.
“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.“
