After a run-in with the cops at a punk show goes sideways, Chelsea (Chloe Levine – The Transfiguration) and her pals flee the city in search of a place to lay low. Running to the security of Chelsea’s old, abandoned family cabin in the woods, they fall under the watchful eye of an overzealous park ranger (Jeremy Holm – House of Cards) who holds a secret from Chelsea’s past.
Set to the beat of a killer punk soundtrack (FANG, The Avengers, The Grim, Rotten UK and more) and presented in eye-popping neon colors, Jenn Wexler’s debut offers a modern take on survivalist horror that both celebrates and subverts the genre’s tropes—with equal parts humor, glitter and gore. (2018, Jenn Wexler, U.S., English, 77 min, NR, DCP)
“Though THE RANGER is a tribute to the slime and grime of classic punk movies, it’s very much a modern film, splitting the difference between the heightened exploitation of CLASS OF 1984 and the unflinching brutality of 2015’s GREEN ROOM.” — Daily Grindhouse
“[P]romises a Technicolor bloodbath in the woods and it absolutely delivers.” — Rue Morgue
“THE RANGER is one of the most punk horror movies that has ever punked.” — Bloody Disgusting
