Toad Road – August 29th – 8:00 pm BEST PICTURE WINNER

Director: Jason Banker

This surreal psychological drama gives a truthful look at human behavior while crafting a current of unease. Subtle horror permeates this tale of James, a part-time pizza worker addicted to taking situations to extremes, hurting himself physically and avoiding any type of relationship that demands openness. His friends enable this behavior until he meets Sara. But she soon becomes immersed in experimentation with drugs and finds herself unleashing something locked away since childhood. His life is torn apart by her disappearance, soon after they were last seen together walking on a forest path that locals say leads to the gates of hell. James’s sanity becomes challenged as everyone suspects him of murder and he begins to wonder if the gates to hell do exist.
