Jenn Wexler featured on “The Most Interesting New Filmmakers We Met in 2018” from Film School Rejects

Jenn Wexler has been working with Glass Eye Pix, producing some of the more interesting genre films lately like DarlingPsychopaths, and Like Me. Her first feature, The Ranger pits punks against The Man, slasher-style. A group of 80s punks flee the city and head out to the woods. They shack up in a family cabin now owned by group member Chelsea, who’s played by Chloe Levine. They encounter a park ranger, played by Jeremy Holm, who is dead set on preserving the sanctity of the woods.

Characters don’t have to make great choices for them to be authentic or real or strong. Which is great for The Ranger, because it’s full of bad decisions and great characters. The movie builds tension slowly until a gunshot rings out and the first body drops, which kicks off a rollercoaster of violence and strange memories and gory horror. Colorful punks battling an insane park ranger is not what I would have thought I needed from the cabin-in-the-woods slasher genre, but god damn. Yes, please.

Variety: Jenn Wexler featured on “15 Women Horror Directors Jason Blum Can Add to His List”

From Variety:

“Wexler’s list of producing credits on horror projects runs impressively long, and March’s “The Ranger” proved her directing legitimacy There’s plenty of punk rock, spunk, and action to be found in her homage to ‘80s slasher movies, and the film solidifies Wexler as a director to watch in 2019.”

AV CLUB: Jenn Wexler featured on “10 Female Directors for Jason Blum, who seems to have trouble finding them”

From AV CLUB: Wexler’s debut feature, The Ranger, is a wildly entertaining punk-rock slasher throwback made on a tiny independent budget, just the sort of thing Blumhouse purports to specialize in. The Ranger had a limited theatrical run, so maybe Blum didn’t see it then, but he’ll have a chance to catch up with it when it debuts on Shudder next year.

Glass Eye Pals Izzy Lee and Roxanne Benjamin also on the list!
