Full of plot holes & cheesy dialogue, The Legend of the Psychotic Forest Ranger is a B horror movie straight out of the 80s. After taking a wrong turn down an abandoned road, the Jock, the Joker, the Blond Bimbo & the Paranoid Brunette run out of gas and find themselves stranded in the middle of the woods. What a total drag. What was that noise? Why is everyone vanishing? Is it all one of Bradley's dumb practical jokes, or could The Legend be true? Your compass can't help you in these woods.Written by
I love slasher films (My favorite is the 1981 My Bloody Valentine, also filmed on Cape Breton Island), and I love films made in Cape Breton because I used to live there before the Canadian economy got bad. When I saw the trailer for Psychotic Forest Ranger, I couldn't wait to see it.
Don't go into this one expecting some kind of cinematic masterpiece, because its campy acting, corny dialogue and cheap gore effects are on purpose, a homage to all those classic 70's and 80's slashers and to a sadly bygone era of funny horror films. From the bright-colored clothing and retro music, to the grainy faded film look, Psychotic Forest Ranger might as well have stepped out of the 20th century. The scenery and acting was great, and this film has a brilliantly-talented cast and crew who really know how to build up a hilarious story. If you're a fan of horror films but you're sick of all the modern garbage like the multiple Paranormal Activity remakes, then you'll definitely want to watch this one.
