A documentary horror film about the environmental nightmare left in the wake of the giant toads' unstoppable march across Australia.


The toad was introduced in Australia to eat beetles that destroyed the sugar cane. In one of the world's most grotesque environmental catastrophes, the toad spawned so vehemently that one could not drive a car without running them over. Informative, engaging, funny as hell, and even a bit psychedelic, Cane Toads: The Conquest dramatically reenacts the experiences of those who've tussled with the toad, including one drugged out canine who's licked the poisonous amphibian and lived to tell the tale.
