TOAD ROAD TO HIT DVD & VOD IN OCTOBER

Following the it’s theatrical run, TOAD ROAD will be arriving on DVD & VOD this October thanks to a distribution deal through Arstploitation Films. Brian Sokel, vice president of Artsploitation Films, had this to say about the film …

“There is a nihilism and decay present within the characters of Toad Road that makes the film mesmerizing. The horror comes not from just a mystical location and inevitable conclusion, but a very real, very dark place in each of their hearts. It’s a unique film that must be seen.”

Director, writer and cinematographer Jason Banker directed and produced Toad Road, his first narrative feature, with Elijah Wood serving as executive producer.

SYNOPSIS:

Inspired by an urban legend, Toad Road is an intimate meditation on lost youth evocative of Gus Van Sant (with a racy touch of Larry Clark) and a radical deconstruction of genre cinema, a devastating and brilliant object of contemplation and dread, and a journey down unexpected paths. The story takes place in rural Pennsylvania near the town of York, an infamous area that – according to urban legend – has a trail in the woods containing the seven gates that lead to Hell.
