Rent-A-Pal ★★★

This didn't feel like a horror movie until the last 20 minutes and it was not what I anticipated. It features a lonely guy who is frustrated with life and he is desperately seeking a connection, but it felt like a sad character study about him slipping into madness. It didn't feature any real horror or thriller elements until the ending, which lets loose a bit, but at no point did I feel tense or scared. I didn't flat out hate this movie, but I didn't love it either. I have mixed feelings about what this was. I expected a creepy horror film scenario, but what I got was a sad dramatic film scenario that just happened to have a twisted ending. I'm not sure I'm happy with this, but what it is isn't inherently bad. I'm still processing this one.
