SXSW 2018: The Ranger Cast Brings Punk Rock Back to Horror

Yesterday, we gave you an adrenalized dose of punk rock with our interview with director Jenn Wexler and producer Ashleigh Snead of The Ranger. Today, it’s time to introduce you to our band of merry misfits! Above, we’ve got an interview with cast members Jeremy Holm, Chloe Levine, Amanda Grace Benitez, and Granit Lahu that tackles the ways in which punk rock and horror share similar views by mainstream society, what is was like working on set, and we even got Granit to sing us some lines from an original song from the film!

When Chelsea and her friends get in trouble with the cops, they flee the city and go on the run. Fueled by a hallucinogenic drug called Echo, they hope to lay low–and get high–in an old family hideout in the woods. But Chelsea’s got reservations about going back to nature and secrets she’s not sharing with her friends. When a shot rings out, her past comes crashing back, and the punks find themselves pitted against the local authority: an unhinged park ranger with an axe to grind.

The Ranger stars Chloe Levine, Granit Lahu, Jeremy Pope, and “Mr. Robot’s” Jeremy Holm as The Ranger.
