    Sinister, comical, aggravating, and audacious, Calvin Lee Reeder's film is nothing short of an affront.

    Bursting with cheap f/x, the pic is often tedious when not repugnant, but it’s hard to dislike.

    It's a handsome nothing, at least until you get sick of the screaming.

    The Rambler...feels like a slender plot with additional scenes pasted on.

    Plot details turn out to be secondary to the cheap visual effects and abundant gore that Reeder frequently manages to incorporate by taking the narrative on some inexplicable and queasily violent detours. Overall, performances are just perfunctory enough to convey the concept of acting.

    The narrative is haphazard, and by the middle of the film, it's apparent that Reeder isn't even trying to make sense. Unconventional storytelling can be entertaining, too, but The Rambler just seems weird for its own sake and in love with cheap shock value.
