Though far from perfect, Toad Road is also the first unique horror film to come along in years.
63
Writer-director Jason Banker finds the ironic beauty that arises from his characters' self-contemptuous and misplaced acts of destruction.

Though it can be taken at first glance as an archetypal “nothing happening” movie, there's just enough going on here to suggest repeat viewings might reward curiosity.
60
The home-movie vérité style of the early scenes pays dividends when inexplicable occurrences suddenly take us by surprise.
60
Toad Road is sloppy and under-realized, but it should connect with anyone who's ever made terrible choices for no good reason.

The New York Times
Mr. Banker teases us with a dizzy, dislocating shooting style that throws up a succession of eerily arresting images. Even so, his film never overcomes the fact that watching drugged-out wastrels is rarely interesting - unless, of course, you're one of them.
