IFC Films opens the door to THE RENTAL in July, and has provided an advance peek at one scene along with the poster today.

Coming to theaters and VOD July 24, THE RENTAL marks the directorial debut of actor Dave Franco, who scripted the movie with Joe Swanberg from a story they wrote with Mike Demski. Alison Brie, Dan Stevens (THE GUEST), Jeremy Allen White and Sheila Vand (A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT) star; the synopsis: “Two couples looking to celebrate their seed money from a new business venture embark on a weekend getaway to a seemingly perfect house they’ve booked online. But what begins as a festive weekend for the four close friends turns into something far more sinister as secrets they’ve kept from each other are exposed and paranoia grows that they may not be alone.”
