  • 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.

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.
