First Trailer for Horror Thriller 'The Rental' Directed by Dave Franco
"This will never be over." IFC Films has unveiled the first official trailer for an indie horror thriller titled The Rental, which is getting released in July later this summer. It hasn't premiered at any film festivals, but that doesn't make a difference for this film. Co-written by Dave Franco and Joe Swanberg, and directed by Dave Franco as his first film, The Rental is about two couples that rent a vacation home for what should be a celebratory weekend get-away. But it turns into "something far more sinister" when secrets are revealed and paranoia about not being alone in the rental home creeps in. Wait until you see this trailer. Starring Dan Stevens, Alison Brie, Sheila Vand, and Jeremy Allen, with Toby Huss. Wow! This looks intense and extremely frightening. Starts out nice and calm, but quickly gets scary as hell by the end. Check it out.
