Park Ranger vs Punks
2 May 2019 | by troma_freekSee all my reviews

A deranged National Park Ranger is killing off a group of punk teens in this retro flare Backwood slasher by writer/director Jenn Wexler. Following an incident in a Punk club, 5 Punk kids are running from the police only to seek shelter in a remote cabin in a national park. This first half plays out like a teenage crime drama just before taking a sharp turn into predictable slasher territory. While The Ranger is not without it's charms it offers nothing new or unique to the genre and never fully lives up to it's potential. Pink haired Chloe Levine gives a solid performance, and so does Jeremy Holm as the Ranger. It's watchable, but nothing to write home about.
