Reviews

Consequence - Michael Roffman
Franco exercises so much restraint, especially during the frenetic final act, that you’re always left on edge. There’s hardly a single gratuitous shot to the entire film.

The Hollywood Reporter - Jon Frosch
It's a confident, enjoyably nasty piece of work, unnerving enough to cure your FOMO about that canceled summer vacation.
78
Austin Chronicle - Unnamed
Take out the masked menace, this is still tense: Add them in, and it's stomach-churning. Brutal, smart, wild and mean, The Rental savagely reinvents the summer camp slasher for the vacation rental generation, and delivers a punchline payoff that will leave you reeling.
75
The Film Stage - Christopher Schobert
A sturdy, small-scale thriller that makes little lasting impact but certainly succeeds in providing some clever jolts.
70
Slashfilm - Chris Evangelista
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.
