Jenn Wexler makes her directorial debut with the punk rock horror The Ranger. Not only do we have the new teaser trailer to share with you, we have a rocking new clip.
Wexler, the producer of Asensio’s 2017 SXSW Competition Winner Most Beautiful Island, Robert Mockler’s Like Me (2017), and Mickey Keating’s Psycopaths (2017), and Darling(2016), co-wrote The Ranger along with Giaco Furino, who also produced along with horror veteran Larry Fessenden, Heather Buckley, Ashleigh Snead, and Andrew van den Houten, Glass Eye Pix and Hood River Entertainment.
In the film, “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 held its world premiere at SXSW, recently played the Fantasia International Film Festival, was an official selection at the inaugural What The Fest!?, and will open London’s FrightFest.
