Making its way onto Shudder, Glass Eye Pix and Hood River Entertainment deliver a pulse-pounding punk slasher, The Ranger, starring Chloë Levine and Amanda Grace Benitez. Co-writer/director Jenn Wexler has such a sleek visual style when it comes to the specific look of the ensemble cast and the blood-soaked kill scenes.
A group of punk teens are on the run from the police. Their only hope left is to actually head off into the woods. They end up being terrorized by one park ranger’s brand of psychotic justice.
Here are 5 reasons why you should see The Ranger:
5) Chloë Levine!

4) Amanda Grace Benitez!
As Amber, Amanda Grace Benitez brings in such lightheartedness as her character and nails the comedic delivery. Benitez’s engaging chemistry with Chloë Levine really shines in their scenes together. Because Amber is more of an extrovert, Benitez really pops out with her beaming personality.
