So what’s THE RANGER all about? Here’s a look at the official synopsis to get you through the woods: 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. When asked why bring THE RANGER to fresh VHS, director / co-writer Jenn Wexler said, “THE RANGER is the movie I wished I could have watched on VHS as a kid. It’s set in what I like to call “1980s dreamland,” an imaginary past reminiscent of ’80s punk horror classics like RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD. Having Lunchmeat create a RANGER VHS is a dream come true. Now all I have to do is time-travel back to sneak it onto the shelf of my local video store… “

A VHS release for THE RANGER feels a bit like destiny, as the very first trailer for THE RANGER pays tribute to the VHS era, starting as a grainy, square, fake PSA for Blackwood Point National Park, before the screen goes wide and the mayhem runs wild. Here’s a peek at that trailer just below!
