Remember 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 Anchor Bay Films and AKA Pictures Present An XYZ Films / Brooklyn Reptyle Films Production of The Rambler!
Fresh from sold-out screenings at this year’s Sundance and SXSW Festivals, Anchor Bay Films announces the June 25th Blu-ray™ and DVD release of the groundbreaking indie-short turned feature film starring Dermot Mulroney (Stoker, The Grey), Lindsay Pulsipher (“True Blood,” “Justified”) and Natasha Lyonne (American Pie, American Reunion, But I’m A Cheerleader). Written and directed by Calvin Lee Reeder, The Rambler has an SRP of $24.99 for the Blu-ray™ disc and $22.98 for the DVD, with pre-book on May 29th. In addition, limited theatrical engagements will be announced shortly.
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 I mention exploding heads?
