All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

Toad Road (2013)

Starring: Jason Banker, Sara Anne Jones
Director: Jason Banker


Premise:
A group of young 20 somethings hang out, drinking, and doing drugs. The new girlfriend of one of the group wants to explore the legend of Toad Road, which is apparently leads to the Gates of Hell.

My Take:
An interesting movie where the majority is about people getting messed up on drugs. Then this local legend gets thrown in the mix where supposedly on this road there are seven gates and no one has ever been past the third gate. This girl wants to get all messed up and  walk it with her boyfriend because she believes there is a bigger meaning behind it. They do and the guy is found months later which no memory of what happened during the walk or what happened to his girlfriend. With the editing and pacing, everything is a tad delutional which might be why it held my interest. I'm gonna have to watch this again soon to see if I pick up any extra details.

Rating: In the middle
