Movie Review – Room For Rent (2019)

Room For Rent, 2019.

Directed by Tommy Stovall.

Starring Lin Shaye, Oliver Rayon, Valeska Miller, and Ryan Ochoa.


Joyce, a lonely widow, rents out a room in her house. She soon becomes dangerously obsessed with one of her guests, a mysterious drifter.

Let’s start this review off by talking about the incomparable Lin Shaye. As the star of Room For Rent, Shaye carries the film on her back. Not only giving the best performance of the piece but giving it an overall grander feeling with her presence.

A veteran actor with over 40 years in the business, Lin Shaye is a force in the horror community as she churns out memorable performance after memorable performance. Even when the film isn’t as strong as her acting, like Room For Rent, she still elevates the material like no other. Any movie that gives a starring role to a woman in her 70s is admirable.
