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.

Lean, mean, and utterly merciless.

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

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

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

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.

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