25YL: Jenn Wexler featured on “Blood, Guts, Feminism: Favorite Female Horror Directors”

From 25YL: Swinging from one of the Masters of Horror to a burgeoning young talent, Jenn Wexler has made one of 2019’s most exciting horror films: The Ranger. Taking influence from filmmakers like Alex Cox (Repo ManSid and Nancy)  and her own background growing up in the punk scene, the throwback slasher is a journey into Hell for four young punks who go on the run from the police in the big bad city to hide out in the idyllic countryside at the female protagonist’s cabin. She hasn’t been there since her uncle’s mysterious death years ago, and they’re all in for a nightmarish surprise when they realize they’ve jumped out of the frying pan and into the fryer.

Jenn Wexler is one of those fresh young talents that has been making films for ten years as a producer with genre icon Larry Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix. She has produced gem after gem for Glass Eye like Darling (2015) and Like Me (2017). She made the transition to directing and writing her first feature after directing shorts for Fessenden in the horror anthology ABCs of Death 2 (2014). Want to talk about pedigree? Jenn Wexler’s work for Glass Eye Pix should be all that’s needed for everyone to stand up and take notice. Even mainstream magazines like Entertainment Weekly have recently named The Ranger has one of the best horror films of 2019 so far.

I had the privilege of talking to Wexler just before The Ranger‘s release for 25YL, and it became quite clear early on that she has a deep and genuine love for all her characters. This comes through so clearly in The Ranger that it’s hard not to root for these kids and pray to whatever that they make it through the night alive in their battle of survival against Jeremy Holm (House of Cards), the titular instant slasher icon of the film.  It’s a fast-paced, terrifying film that announces the arrival of a filmmaker who understands the outcast and how to put them in some really intense horrific situations!

Bloody Disgusting: THE RANGER Gets a New Trailer Ahead of Next Month’s Shudder Premiere

Director Jenn Wexler‘s punk slasher The Ranger proved to be a hit on the festival circuit, and it’s next headed to Shudder‘s streaming service next month, on Thursday, May 9th!

Check out Shudder’s new trailer below, 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.

Jeremy Holm (“House of Cards”, “Mr Robot”), Chloe Levine (The Transfiguration, The OA) and Amanda Grace Benitez (All Cheerleaders Die) star alongside Granit Lahu, Jeremy Popeand Bubba Weiler in the film from Larry Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix and Andrew van den Houten’s Hood River Entertainment.

The killer soundtrack features The Grim, the Avengers, Fang and more.

The Ranger was written by Jenn Wexler and Giaco Furino.

Andrew van den Houten and Ashleigh Snead produced for Hood River Entertainment and Larry Fessenden and Heather Buckley produced for Glass Eye Pix, along with Wexler.

THE RANGER coming to VHS! Pre-order now!

Jenn Wexler’s THE RANGER comes to Limited Edition VHS, a Lunchmeat exclusive.

“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.” – Jenn Wexler

Father Son Holy Gore: THE RANGER “A kick ass, punk rock slice of horror”

Jenn Wexler’s THE RANGER: A Punk Rock Manifesto for Women

“Chelsea’s survival is about more than being fated to the status of some Final Girl. Her story evokes a woman’s struggle, in a world hellbent on remaining binary in countless ways, to realise her identity without being constrained to the scrutinous rules of society, and a patriarchal one at that. Or maybe it’s just a kick ass, punk rock slice of horror. (It can be both.) Either way, Father Gore remains ready to see whatever Wexler does next.”
