The film is notable for its handling of the concepts of fear and psychological horror. The main focus of the film is the recorded footage left behind by four teens who went in search of Ranger Rick before things went horribly wrong. Throughout most of the movie, Ranger Rick is not seen, but his presence is felt throughout, allowing the viewer to make their own assumptions about the enigmatic being, and whether he exists or not.
