In this 80s slasher homage, punk rockers on the run find themselves pitted against a park ranger with a strict list of behaviours he expects them to abide by - and a penchant for violence when his standards aren't met.
"What happens when a bunch of young punk rockers take the latest party drug and wind up knifing a cop? They go on the lam to a cabin in the woods, of course. So begins Jenn Wexler’s juicy entry in the punk horror stakes. Chloë Levine gives a dynamite lead performance as Chelsea, a clever cookie (and anything but your average ‘Final Girl’) who leads her snotty pals to a supposedly safe haven. But this leafy locale holds dark memories for Chelsea and is home to a demented public official who really doesn’t like littering or young non-conformists. Loaded with humour and grisly goings-on, The Ranger rocks to a superb soundtrack including legendary L.A. outfit Avengers. Keep a lookout for Larry Fessenden!" (Sydney Film Festival)
