Special guest Abby Olcese joins us for a review of the new horror thriller The Rental, Dave Franco’s directorial debut starring Dan Stevens, Alison Brie, Sheila Vand, and Jeremy Allen White. We also discuss the dramedy Yes, God, Yes starring Natalia Dyer and the recent documentary John Lewis: Good Trouble. Plus we have some discussion about the role of VOD, streaming, and drive-ins as major theatrical releases continue to be delayed this year.
