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
Not great, but not bad either. Writing: meh. Acting: eh some are ok. Practical effects: pretty good. Camera work: oof, you can see cords for lights or cameras reflected in the drink case in the truck stop scene.
3 skulls it is. Not great by any means, plot's a little lacking. But interesting enough. Actually a little better than I expected.
Very bad writing and dialogue. Like brutally bad. I hated every main character so much that I was rooting for the bad guy. Also checks the Woke boxes.. cringe. Some okay parts, but so bad that I'd be very reluctant to watch the director's other films.
A bit slow feeling but enjoyable.
