Critic Reviews for The Rambler
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.
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.
