Two couples on a retreat start uncovering dark secrets about each other, before discovering they might not be alone on their vacation
After many years in front of the camera, Dave Franco is stepping behind it, breaking away from comedy to feature an all-new horror film, 'The Rental.' We have the release date, plot, cast, trailer and everything else you need to know about the new movie from IFC Films, set to release on VOD.
'The Rental' is set to release on VOD on July 23.
According to the official synopsis, "Two couples on an oceanside getaway grow suspicious that the host of their seemingly perfect rental house may be spying on them. Before long, what should have been a celebratory weekend trip turns into something far more sinister." What seems like a simple vacation spins out into something more as the couples' secrets start coming to the light. It's not long before they find that they may not be alone as they thought — and they may not all come back from their vacation the same.
Alison Brie, Dave Franco's wife, stars as Michelle. She is perhaps best known for her roles on 'Community' and as the lead on 'GLOW.'
