Michael Nader On Bringing the Horrific Toll Man To Life in The Toll [Exclusive Interview]

The Toll - Michael Nader

The Toll – Michael Nader

The Toll Man only needs a blood payment as a sacrifice. That’s a large price to pay in The Toll and only with exact change (pardon the pun).

From the mind of director and writer Michael Nader, he conceived a story of a horrific supernatural creature that forces humans to sacrifice one another in order to escape a nightmarish scenario.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Supernatural terror and spine-tingling suspense highlight this gripping journey into fear. When Cami orders a taxi service to take her to her father’s country home, she’s hoping for a quiet and uneventful ride. But a wrong turn by Spencer, her chatty driver, results in the car stalling on a dark and remote road. After several threatening and inexplicable occurrences, Cami and Spencer realize they are being watched—by an unseen presence that sees them as trespassers and is ready to exact a deadly toll.

The horror movie stars Max Topplin (Suits) as the socially awkward driver and Jordan Hayes (House at the End of the Street) as the weary passenger. The rest of the cast includes James McGowan (Total Recall) and Rosemary Dunsmore (Orphan Black).
