The Rental - Official Trailer | HD | IFC Films.
Charlie (Dan Stevens), his wife Michelle (Alison Brie), his brother Josh (Jeremy Allen White), and his business partner Mina (Sheila Vand) rent a seaside house for a weekend getaway. Upon arriving at the remote property, the group meets the property caretaker Taylor (Toby Huss), who acts oddly and makes comments to Mina that appear to be racially motivated. After Taylor leaves, Mina, Josh, and Charlie get high and Michelle goes to bed.
Josh passes out on a couch, and Mina and Charlie have sex in the shower. The next morning, a hungover Mina and Charlie agree they can never be intimate again, while Josh mentions to Michelle that Charlie has cheated on several former girlfriends, making Michelle doubt Charlie. Mina discovers a minicamera in the showerhead and alerts Charlie. The two are confident that Taylor has installed the cameras and filmed them. Charlie stops her from alerting the police, reasoning that doing so would mean that in the police inquiry, Michelle and Josh would see the footage of them having sex. They decide instead to leave the next morning.
That night, Michelle gets high and calls Taylor to fix the hot tub. Mina privately confronts Taylor about the hidden cameras, which he claims to be unaware of. He attempts to call the police himself; Mina tries to stop him. Josh rushes in and, assuming Taylor is attacking her, beats him unconscious. Mina tells everyone about the hidden camera in the shower. Meanwhile, a masked man sneaks inside and smothers Taylor to death. When the others return and find Taylor dead, they assume that Josh has accidentally killed him.
