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.

    Jun 13, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    Jun 7, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

  • More proof that horror as a genre has been hedged out of midnight movie programming in favor of meandering strangeness.

Audience Reviews for The Rambler

  • Jun 16, 2013
    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.
