Weird,creepy and depressing
18 May 2019 | by jayfawnSee all my reviews

Room for rent is a movie of mental illness, isolation and peculiarity. It is story of Joyce, a senior citizen who's husband was recently died. Actress Lin Shaye who played Joyce said "it is story of decline, a helpless woman who has no life skills who find herself desperately longing for attention and love. She must navigate her own life after a personal tragedy. . .She's a loner and lives in loneliness house, she saw a magazine 'BNB' she doesn't even know what does it mean and suddenly she looks it up, 'let's have a bed and breakfast maybe I can earn some money'. So that's where the problem starts."

Personally, I like this movie despite a lot of people complaining on how crappy it is. It is cringey on most part because it successfully capture the feeling of uneasiness on how an old person slowly drifting away from reality. How she became obsess and her agony for Bob's attention.

Lin Shaye's acting is always been excellent having a title of 'scream queen'. Other supporting actors are emotionless and amateur, they nearly ruined the movie, if not because of Shaye's brilliant acting.
