As a modern slasher, The Ranger is gory, witty, unpredictable, and fresh.
August 8, 2019
The Ranger is a roundhouse kick of a slasher film with a killer soundtrack, relatable characters and a decent chunk of bloody gore.
June 5, 2019
A short, sharp and insanely fun new entry into the slasher canon, offering up one of the genre's best antagonists in years.

The Ranger is in touch with nature in a very psychotic way, and plays off of Chelsea's fish out of water persona in the big city.

The Ranger is the type of Friday night rental you're stoked to have found by Saturday morning. Pulpy, sensational, stylish, and merciless, Jenn Wexler shows a ton of promise as a filmmaker, and may even have a potential muse in Chloe Levine.

Smart, sassy, and above all, great fun.
April 27, 2019
A kick ass horror and a punk rock manifesto for women in the genre.
December 7, 2018
When a groups of punks take refuge from the law in a cabin in the woods, all hell breaks loose. "The Ranger" is a great debut feature from Jenn Wexler.
December 1, 2018
The film rocks if you can chill with it.
November 2, 2018
It's pretty rough around the edges, part by design and part because this is Wexler's first movie, but it's a lot of fun and the kind of horror movie you want to put on at parties.

The Ranger is equal parts carnage, survival, and punk rock. It has all the appeal of an eighties slasher flick, but it also tells a more complex story.
October 29, 2018
It's simply going to deliver on its promise of a punk rock slasher flick. If that sounds appealing, you're likely to not be disappointed.
October 10, 2018
This is mostly very fun, silly but satisfying.
August 27, 2018
Blending a playful Eighties vibe with a distinctly modern sensibility, it takes on themes much darker than mere murder yet never loses its spirit.

The real star of the show is [director] Jenn Wexler. While the script she co-wrote with Giaco Furino has believability issues, the film's overall tone is ambitious.
August 23, 2018
Green Room set in Jason Voorhees' stomping ground, The Ranger will have you on the edge of your seat. Gore-soaked fun with an emotional core and kick-ass score.
August 21, 2018
It does not feel like a factory created slasher or just another throwback gore fest; it feels like a film that has a lot of affection for both the punk community and the history of horror and wants to be a new entry into both those worlds
August 17, 2018
Wexler has interpreted her influences thoughtfully and inverted them cleverly. It's the smart kind of dumb fun.
August 15, 2018
The Ranger doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it absolutely uses that wheel with effectiveness and skill.
August 13, 2018
Wexler and Furino haven't crafted a new iteration of the "final girl" trope - they've turned it on its head.
