The Rambler Features Exploding Heads And Elderly Walkouts

The Rambler posterRemember midnight movies from the 1970s? Those after-hour slices of cult celluloid that stunned audiences with their mash-up of genres, innovative narratives, and psychedelic imagery? Get ready to relive those hallucinogenic halcyon days again, as The Rambler makes its way to Blu-ray and DVD on June 25th.

Fresh from sold-out screenings at this year’s Sundance and SXSW Festivals, this groundbreaking indie short-turned-feature film stars Dermot Mulroney (Stoker, The Grey), Lindsay Pulsipher (True Blood, Justified), and Natasha Lyonne (American Pie, American Reunion, But I’m A Cheerleader) and was written and directed by Calvin Lee Reeder.

Enjoy the video clip (above) of Calvin talking about how he got started and audience reaction to The Rambler.

In the film, a stranger known only as “the Rambler” (Mulroney) is just released from prison and anxious to build a new life for himself. Coming home to a faithless girlfriend (Lyonne), he quickly realizes his old life is truly behind him. With the promise of a job and some stability from his brother, the Rambler embarks on a cross-country journey to what hopefully is a new start.

Like Odysseus and other travelers on the road-to-wisdom before him, the Rambler – armed only with his cowboy hat, shades, a guitar, and traveling sack — will encounter all manner of obstacles and dangers on his road to redemption, including a scientist with a dream-recording (onto VHS!) machine, a cab driver with an unnatural love of the original Frankenstein film, “mummies” in the back of trucks and, oh — did we mention exploding heads?
