Over the years, film production has been so intense that many great movies go unnoticed in theatres. And since the pandemic has hit us, there is no way of finding these movies in theatres anymore. That is where Netflix and other streaming sites come in. They give these underappreciated films a second life by streaming them on their site. One such film is the 2020 Horror flick The Rental. Apart from a decent cast and story, The Rental has great filming locations that make the movie a visual treat.
The Rental what is the film about?
The Rental is written, produced, and directed by Dave Franco. The movie also marks his directorial debut. Dave Franco’s wife Allison Brie stars in the film as Michelle.
Dan Stevens (Beauty and the Beast, Legion), Sheila Vand (Snowpiercer, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night), and Jeremy Allen White (After Everything, Shameless) round out the cast.
The film is about two couples on a beach vacation getting concerned that their seemingly flawless rental house’s host is spying on them. What started as a fun weekend vacation quickly devolves into something considerably more frightening.
The movie was unable to score large among critics but fans loved Franco’s first-time direction and the casts’ acting. Another aspect that the audience fell in love with was the great on-site location in which the film spends its entirety. That brings us to our second question…
Where are The Rental filming locations?
You will find the rental property situated on a lonely cliff between Cape Arago’s southern base and the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, north of Bandon (Coos Bay).
The majestic SeaWinds Estate is an iconic seaside property. It is now open to the public as a private wedding location or as a place to relax after a round of golf in Bandon Dunes.
The estate property, which has four bedrooms and a private beach, is 5,600 square feet. The Seven Devils State Recreation Site appears to be the gorgeous filming site of the long sandy beach.
