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.
THE RANGER world premiered at SXSW 2018, was in official selection for the innagural What The Fest!?, recently played the Fantasia International Film Festival, and opened London’s FrightFest.
