If you love classic 80s slashers. This is definitely for you.
10 November 2018 | by jordanhaney-89041See all my reviews

Being a fan of classic slashers such as A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Friday the 13th and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Ranger was definitely right up my alley. It takes a minute to build up, much like 80s classic The Burning, but once it does it delivers the goods, again much like the aforementioned, especially towards the end. The movie is FUN, plain and simple. The writing is very flawed at times but the actors do a great job delivering. The lead and the killer especially. The killer by the way is HILLARIOUS and menacing at the same time. Much akin to a certain Christmas sweater wearing baddie we know. You find times to root for him while also rooting for the victims, again especially with the lead. I left this movie feeling highly satisfied. Could the writing and dialogue have been better at times? Yes. And could the rest of the punk kids aside from the lead have been less than your basic vanilla punks who hate authority and go way out of there way to prove it? Yes, but all in all if your looking for a fun slasher that I dare say is way better than Friday the 13th, look this way.
