Dave Franco attempts to escape his brother's shadow by commissioning a mumblecore horror flick called The Rental. Teaming with the mumbleking himself, Joe Swanberg, the two try to walk the impossible tight rope between arthouse and consumer swill. It is a horror genre piece that shreds conventions without putting them back together. It is a passion project where artistic desire mingles with old Hollywood chutzpah. A film with many identities, none very knowable.

We trace the life of The Rental from conception (AirBNB Nightmares), production (finding the spooky house), release (a pandemic bounce), reception (showing promise or a first misstep)
