We’ve learned throughout the history of Horror that culture can play a major role in the films we love so much, and there are few scenes or cultures more recognizable or impactful as the Punk scene. Sure, we’ve seen Metal influences over and over, and we’ve even gotten a face full of Punk in the MH favorite, Green Room. This time; though, it looks like we’re going to be a little more on-the-nose.

This first glimpse, while operating at a break neck pace, has shades of Jason Takes Manhattan in the non-wilderness scenes. Check out the debut trailer for Jenn Wexler’s THE RANGER, and let us know what you think. THE RANGER enjoys its world premiere on Monday March 12th at the SXSW Film Festival.

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.
