Critic Reviews for Room for Rent

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

It's essential viewing for Lin Shaye fans, and that's more than enough.

Room for Rent plays itself too seriously and the tone never feels more than slightly uncomfortable for most of the run time.

July 15, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Room For Rent is a lovely little thriller gem, a real diamond in the rough. It's not a class A film or cinema at it's purest, but it explores some fascinating themes and one of Lin Shaye's best performances.

May 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Tommy Stoval's unpretentious descent into madness has a mercifully short running time. Fun and chilling, this bed-and-breakfast gets an extra star for its committed hostess.

May 22, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Where the plot is going will very likely leave the viewer some guessing which path it will take.

May 17, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

The film's tone does of course go off the rails here and there, but Stovall holds his nerve, keeping things under control right to the abrupt, bitter end.
