Jason Banker's Toad Road
is the sort of film that defies easy categorization, a deliberately raw and naturalistic indie that veers off down unexpected trails whilst dabbling in psychoactive drugs and elements of horror. It is, in other words, the sort of film that ScreenAnarchy exists for. And it is soon to be hitting screens with a limited theatrical release beginning October 18 in LA and October 25 in New York.
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.
We've got a quartet of character posters for this one along with an exclusive new teaser. Check them out below.
