  • 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.

    Jul 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
