The Ranger

The Ranger

Directed by Jenn Wexler

After a run-in with the cops at a punk show goes sideways, Chelsea 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 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. A SHUDDER ORIGINAL. Contains strong language, violence and gore.

Teen punks on the run face off against an unhinged park ranger with an axe to grind.

Cast: Chloë Levine, Granit Lahu, Bubba Weiler, Jeremy Pope, Amanda Grace Benitez

I watched it just to see the characters die.

I liked it more than I didn't. The music and punk vibe was a fun underlier throughout the whole film. It felt a bit like SLC Punk! meets Psycho at crystal lake. There were 2 or 3 moments that were so cheesy, I cringed but the gore was solid and got me through to the end. Oh and I love our National Parks!

So much was half-baked, from plot stuff to character stuff to aesthetic cohesion…but mostly points off(/skulls off?) for, at times, many times in fact, NUCULAR LEVELS OF CRINGE

No likeable characters and a predictable, unoriginal plot. I'd pass on it if I could rewind time.
