"Silly me… I can't quite reach my towel." Uncork'd Entertainment has debuted an official trailer for Room for Rent, an indie horror thriller from Arizona-based filmmaker Tommy Stovall. Horror icon Lin Shaye stars in this suspense thriller as a lonely widow who rents out a room in her house and becomes dangerously obsessed with one of her younger guests. When a friend’s betrayal derails Joyce’s fantasy world, she seizes control of her own destiny with a deadly mission to finally get what she deserves. The cast includes Oliver Rayon, Valeska Miller, Linda Cushma, Casey Nicholas-Price, and Ryan Ochoa. This looks so tacky and weird and unfortunately incredibly dumb. These kind of bad horror flicks are a dime a dozen nowadays.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Tommy Stovall's Room for Rent, direct from YouTube:
Lonely widow Joyce (Lin Shaye) rents out a room to make easy money. She meets mysterious drifter Bob (Oliver Rayon) and takes him in as a long-term tenant. She becomes obsessed with her much younger guest, making him the object of her deepest romantic fantasies. When a friend's betrayal derails Joyce’s fantasy world, she seizes control of her own destiny with a deadly mission to finally get what she deserves. Room for Rent is directed by filmmaker Tommy Stovall, of the films Hate Crime, Sedona, and Aaron's Blood previously. The screenplay is by Stuart Flack. This premiered at the Sedona Film Festival. Uncork'd Ent. will release Stovall's Room for Rent in select theaters starting on May 3rd, available on VOD May 7th.
I knew Lin Shaye way back when. She was a member of the Actor's Studio and I was an observer. We did a scene for the director Mark Rydell, in L.A., must have been in the late '70's. I liked her and it was fun working with her and rehearsing together, etc. I've since moved on to the greener pastures of retirement and far, far away from the film business...lol...here she is making a name for herself in these movies and is considered an icon. Good for her. She's working...a lot...at her age and is an 'icon'...lol...I liked her, but haven't seen her in almost 40 yrs. now. I hope she's happy, content and making lots of money.

What's up with this new trend - this is the 3rd movie trailer I've seen in the last few months to feature a 'nice' woman who turns out to be crazy. There's that one with Chloe Grace-Moretz and the pocketbook woman, and Octavia Spencer in Ma.
