Room for Rent – USA, 2018

‘She’d kill to find a decent man’

Room for Rent is a 2018 American horror thriller feature film directed by Tommy Stovall (Aaron’s Blood) from a screenplay written by Stuart Flack. The Pasidg Productions movie stars co-producer Lin Shaye, Oliver Rayon, Valeska Miller and Ryan Ochoa.


Lonely widow Joyce (Lin Shaye) rents out a room in her house and becomes dangerously obsessed with Bob (Oliver Rayon), one of her guests…


“The horror aspect only begins to reveal itself near the very ending. It doesn’t help that the male lead isn’t all the intriguing. Yet, if you are a fan of Lin Shaye (and who in the horror community isn’t) then this is worth seeing. She is so good here that it makes you wonder why she isn’t appearing in bigger budget features…” Arrow in the Head
