Movie Info

Upon release from prison, a solitary man known only as "the Rambler" (Dermot Mulroney) embarks on a mysterious journey en route to reconnecting with his long-lost brother. Traversing treacherous back roads, lost highways, and isolated small towns, he unearths a multitude of bizarre and wickedly depraved slices of Americana. (c) Official Site

Misguided exercise in genre fetishism marks a forgettable misfire.

What all of this means is, frankly, nothing. But it's a handsome nothing, at least until you get sick of the screaming.

Foreboding images abound - crawling lizards, mysterious lights in the sky, a funereal assembly populated by grotesques - along with occasional ambient droning on the soundtrack and moments of mild humor and raw gore. Do the tableaus add up? Not really.

The kind of movie where more effort seems to have gone into the cast's wardrobe than their dialogue.

Writer-director Calvin Lee Reeder's randomly splattering take on the back-country-road movie.

I can't say I understand Calvin Lee Reeder's intentions concerning The Rambler, but since there's plenty of room for interpretation, I found my own meaning amongst this wacky mess of mummies and red wine.

Dermot Mulroney's 'Man with No Name' drifter is all too appropriately at the centre of offbeat auteur Calvin Reeder's 'Film with No Point', The Rambler.

Sinister, comical, aggravating, and audacious, Calvin Lee Reeder's film is nothing short of an affront.

Feels like a distant cousin to the new Maniac remake: horror stories told from inside the mind of a calm, cool lunatic.

A mixture of unhinged brilliance, idiocy, unsettling confusion, and a whole lot of chaos.

Audience Reviews for The Rambler

A nameless man is released from prison and hitchhikes across the West heading for a job at his brother's ranch, meeting a mummy-collecting professor who records people's dreams on VHS tape and other insane weirdos along the way. This is going to be marketed as a horror movie but you should go in looking at it as a black comedy; it's got the twisted humor of your sickest nightmares.
