Shout-out to Dave Franco for his first movie as Director/Writer/Producer with The Rental! It's got a standout cast including his wife, Alison Brie, The Guest's Dan Stevens, and Jeremy Allen White from Shameless!
It's a pretty simple slasher that actually works very hard to have some complexity in the characters...until the end when it shifts to the inevitable as it relies heavily on the "stuck in a house with a killer" tropes. Not that that is a bad thing necessarily. However, I didn't love the ending. It seemed like Dave had a good idea for what he wanted to do but in execution it leaves you wanting something more. He does want to do a sequel so hopefully he gets the chance for that.
Anyway....if you like slashers and have about 85 minutes during your Halloween watchlists, you should check it out!
