Punk Rock Slasher & Festival Darling THE RANGER Gets Blu-ray/DVD Release in January

Regular readers of Dread Central know that I’ve been extremely enamored with the punk rock splatter-fest The Ranger ever since Isaw it at SXSW last March. Since then, I’ve watched on the sidelines as the film ran the festival circuit, amassing boat-loads of accolades along the way. I even had the honor of moderating a Q&A with director Jenn Wexler and producer Heather Buckley.

In 2019, Shudder will become the permeant digital residence of TheRanger, but today brings news that the film is also receiving a Blu-ray/DVD release via Black Fawn Distribution. Look for it to hit online and brick and mortar retailers beginning January 22nd, 2019. If you weren’t able to catch The Ranger at a film festival, and there aren’t any Red Box kiosks in your neck of the woods, you can peep the synopsis and trailer below.

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, Jeremy Holm, and Granit Lahu.
