Screener Squad: The Rental

The Rental Movie Review


Dave Franco has to take a turn behind the camera (apparently, every actor does these days) so he calls in his wife and friends to make this home invasion horror film that really seems more interested in being a relationship drama. Written by Joe Swanberg, this story of two couples who spend the weekend at an Air B&B together only to discover they’re not really alone, is getting wildly mixed reviews. We are not an exception as between Chris, Adrian, Bradly, and London, we get some very different takes. Prepare yourself for our review and one of Chris’s patented angry rants.


DIRECTED BY: Dave Franco

STARRING: Alison Brie, Dan Stevens, Sheila Vand, Jeremy Allen White, Toby Huss
