Hosted by director Jenn Wexler, producer Heather Buckley
and editor Abbey Killheffer.
Jenn Wexler talks THE RANGER, Glass Eye Pix, punk music and her 80’s Dreamland
in a 10 question interview with Clout.
From Dread Central:
Producer Heather Buckley has been a hardcore horror fan and punk rocker her entire life. In addition to producing an incredible amount of films, she’s an actress, horror journalist and all around horror junkie. She decided to be a producer on The Ranger, which is her friend Jenn Wexler’s directorial debut. The film is a fun and terrifying punk rock infused, eighties style slasher and stars Chloe Levine and Jeremy Holm. Dread Central had the pleasure of speaking with Heather Buckley about The Ranger, punk rock, horror, and so much more! Read on to find out what we talked about.
From Screen Anarchy:
“I have already seen Glass Eye Pix producer Jenn Wexler’s first feature film, The Ranger at another festival. Does that mean I’m not up for another round? Hell no! In fact, I can’t wait to see this trip through forest Hell with a Fantasia audience, who will no doubt cheer and hoot and clap at all the spots. Jeremy Holms stars as a “strictly by the rules” park ranger who’s idea of upholding his special brand of law is pretty demented. His obsession with pink-haired punk Chelsea is unnerving, and while you might think you’ll suspect why, you definitely won’t get it until the revelation. Bonus: Larry Fessenden!”
From Fantasia: “With sly humour, wit, charm and a punk soundtrack to literally die for, THE RANGER’s grindhouse vibes and loud colours will stick in your mind like gum in your blue hair. Just when you think you know the story by heart, Wexler brings an incredibly creative twist and leaves you wondering who, the punk or the ranger, the wolf really is. In the wilderness, one of these two species will become extinct. Our leading lady is no Little Red Riding Hood and this ranger is no Smokey Bear. Get ready to howl, kids. It’s hunting season.”
From Screen Daily: FrightFest, the annual UK horror and fantasy film festival held in London, has unveiled the lineup for its 19th edition this summer (August 23-27). The festival, which takes place this year at Cineworld Leicester Square and the Prince Charles Cinema, will open with the UK premiere of punk rock-soundtracked slasher The Ranger.
Jenn Wexler’s THE RANGER unspools at the
Portland Horror Film Festival TONIGHT!
6:30 PM @ The Hollywood Theatre
Director Jenn Wexler and Music Supervisor Middagh Goodwin sit with From & Inspired By podcast to discuss THE RANGER.
From the Podcast: “Director Jenn Wexler’s debut feature, The Ranger, is a fun but brutal movie about a bunch of punks who hole up in a cabin while on the lam, only to be stalked and killed by a psychotic park ranger. It’s been getting a lot of acclaim from everyone I know who’s seen it, so I reached out via Twitter, especially after reading a piece music supervisor Middagh Goodwin wrote for the Modesto View, running down all the great bands he’d lined up for the film.
After watching the movie, I was even more excited to talk with Wexler and Goodwin, and I think it comes through in the interview. We get very goofy, and it’s a damn blast.”
