Critic Consensus: Some tricky genre juggling makes The Rental a bit of a fixer-upper, but effective chills and a solid cast make this a fine destination for horror fans.

Movie Info

Two couples on an oceanside getaway grow suspicious that the host of their seemingly perfect rental house may be spying on them. Before long, what should have been a celebratory weekend trip turns into something far more sinister, as well-kept secrets are exposed and the four old friends come to see each other in a whole new light. Alison Brie, Dan Stevens, Jeremy Allen White, and Sheila Vand star in this unnerving and sophisticated debut thriller from Dave Franco (Neighbors, If Beale Street Could Talk, The Disaster Artist).

Critic Reviews for The Rental

All Critics (175) | Top Critics (22)

While the performances ensure that the movie is always watchable, the hesitant storytelling makes it far from compelling, a bad trip about a bummer vacation.

This one is pretty nifty, as such things go, especially if you are partial to the psychological portion of psychological thrillers.

July 24, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It might not make you skip your next weekend trip, but it will make you think twice about where you decide to stay.

July 24, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Franco builds up a nice sense of dread, throws in some uncomfortable human conflict, stirs it up and lets it all explode.

July 24, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

There may be some existential meaning to The Rental's abrupt, too easy ending. But if you ask me, I think Dave Franco ran out of money, time, and ideas.

July 24, 2020 | Full Review…

While it's easy to see a lot of Franco's influences in The Rental, he still finds a way to make this house his own.
