There is nothing I enjoy more than a cheesy 80’s horror film.  I really like all of the bad acting, horrible dialogue and the outrages stories.

I just finished watching a great new horror film that has all of the things I enjoy about ‘80s horror films called “Legend of the Psychotic Forest Ranger.”  It’s great!

“Legend of the Psychotic Forest Ranger,” is released by Level 33 Entertainment and was written and directed by Brad Mills.  It stars, Samuel MacDonald LeMoine, Colleen Mac Isaac, Stephanie Peters, Gabe House, Ricky Newton, Jeannine MacLean, and Michael G. MacDonald as the Psychotic Forest Ranger.

“Legend of the Psychotic Forest Ranger” is about a group of kids who go out into the woods to party one weekend.  They run out of gas and end up staying in an empty house.  Eventually another group of teens show up at the house to party, and you learn that the owners of the house go away every year on vacation, and the kids use the house to party in. 

The kids are not alone; lurking in the woods is a psychotic forest ranger that was supposedly killed in a fire many years ago.  He survived and he makes sure that nobody leaves a fire burning, litters or does anything that they shouldn’t do out in the woods.  If they do, he kills them.

I thought the story was great and was very well written. Everything about this move was bad, and it was intentionally made that way.  The bad acting, the cheesy dialogue and all of the plot holes made “Legend of the Psychotic Forest Ranger a very fun movie to watch.

The special effects looked great, and there was a lot of blood and gore.

There are a few fight scenes in the film, and they look ridiculous.  The characters barely touch each other, and it just looks bad, and it’s really funny.

I know that fans of cheesy ‘80s horror films are really going to enjoy Level 33 Entertainment’s “Legend of the Psychotic Forest Ranger” as much as I did.  The story was great, the acting was horrible, and it was all done on purpose to give the movie the feel of a horror film from the ‘80s.  I think that they did a great job, and I would highly recommend that you check out “Legend of the Psychotic Forest Ranger.”

“Legend of the Psychotic Forest Ranger” is not rated.
