Horror fans are in for a real treat when Jenn Wexler‘s punk slasher The Ranger arrives on Shudder's streaming service next month, on Thursday, May 9th!
Our own Sean Ellis reviewed the film during its festival run stating, "Wexler had a clear vision of what she wanted The Ranger to be and executed it exceptionally well."
Check out Shudder's new trailer while you wait.
In the film, “When Chelsea and her friends get in trouble with the cops, they flee the city and go on the run. Fueled by a hallucinogenic drug called Echo, they hope to lay low-and get high-in an old family hideout in the woods. But Chelsea’s got reservations about going back to nature and secrets she’s not sharing with her friends. When a shot rings out, her past comes crashing back, and the punks find themselves pitted against the local authority- an unhinged park ranger with an axe to grind.”
The Ranger has been lauded for its standout performances from Chloë Levine as the pink-haired punk with a secret, and Jeremy Holm as the maniacal ranger, ready to get his hands bloody in defense of the woods. Granit Lahu, Jeremy Pope, Bubba Weiler, Amanda Grace Benitez, Jeté Laurence and horror icon Larry Fessenden round out the cast.
Wexler co-wrote the film with Giaco Furino. The Ranger is produced by Andrew van den Houten (The Woman), Larry Fessenden (Most Beautiful Island, The House of the Devil), Ashleigh Snead (The Block Island Sound), Heather Buckley and Wexler (Like Me, Darling).
