The Rental | Ratings & Reviews

"Stunning cinematography, compelling performances, dark psychological aspects explored and an enigmatic ending…"


"This is an intriguing, if ultimately not-that-innovative, cross between Shallow Grave and the home invasion horrors of The Strangers."


"So well-paced and deliberate, and its cast so good, that even though you know where it's going, it's still immensely satisfying to take the journey."


"A diabolical, vise-tightening thriller."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"Lean, mean, and utterly merciless."


"Pretty basic boilerplate, scary-movie stuff, with tropes and tricks that have already been extensively satirised elsewhere."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Billed as an indie slasher, it works even better as a wickedly unsympathetic chamber piece."

Daily TelegraphDaily Telegraph

"Dave Franco has a mighty command of silence as a measurement of emotional aftershock."

Slant MagazineSlant Magazine

"There’s some crafty artistry at work in The Rental, and also some fairly standard pandering, which feels like a violation of the movie’s better instincts. That said, most of it is skillful and engrossing enough to establish Franco as a director to watch."


"As far as directorial debuts go, The Rental is a strong start for Franco, who proves here he can take not just one but two different tried-and-true genre formulas and rework them into something neat."

Slash FilmSlash Film

"It's a confident, enjoyably nasty piece of work, unnerving enough to cure your FOMO about that canceled summer vacation."
