“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!
Join us this weekend at the Great Western Catskills International Film Festival,
hosted by GEP pals James Felix McKenney and Lisa Wisely.
