Rent-A-Pal

You’ve got a friend in me.

Depressed, lonely, trapped at home with his dementia-riddled mother, our “hero” needs an outlet, and finds two.

One comes from a fledgling romantic relationship with a fellow caretaker.

The other, far-darker, and seemingly more-permanent friendship is with a man who seemingly exists only on a pre-recorded VHS tape.

Wil Wheaton, channeling a far-creepier version of Mr. Rogers, is here to patiently listen to his “friends” problems and gently prod them into action.

Or is he?

Head down to the basement and fire up the VCR, but only if you’re ready for reality to fracture.
