    Really fun movie up towards the very end, wont spoil it for others, but the end spoiled it for me.

    The film looked very good, and had some slick camerawork, but the thing that I enjoyed the most about it was the onscreen chemistry of the main actors.

    I was so invested, oh God how invested I was. Sara Paxton was so goddamn cute, and Pat Healy was so goddamn good. Everything was so fun, and then I got served the most ungratifying ending to a previously good movie ever. I don't even know if I still like the movie or not, I'm just sitting here moping.

    Damn you Ti West. But also kudos. But Damn you the most.

    Most of my friends know that although I'm not a Ti West fan whatsoever, I will praise his 2011 film, The Innkeepers, till the end of time. Why? Because simply put, this movie has set the cinematic ghost standard. Amongst its realistic dialogue and pacing is an overlooking sense of restraint, balance and rationale like no other ghost movie before it. This film was made for all the people out there, sick of possession films, ghoulish slasher flicks and demon…

    The Innkeepers was a film that made me reconsider going downstairs to get a drink after I'd watched it at home alone at night. It may have a fair few detractors, but it is straight up one of the most purely creepy films I've seen that was made this century. It even manages to include a bit of subtext regarding 'dead'-end jobs...

    After impressing everyone with 80's homage movie The House of the Devil, Ti West again goes old school. But where House of the Devil successfully replicated the look, feel and everything else from the 80's, The Innkeepers is set in the present day but feels old school in its setting, story and build up.
    Based in a real life hotel, The Yankee Pedlar Inn is due to close for good and its two remaining employees, Claire and Luke(Sara Paxton in…

    Un bon suspense, avec de très bonnes idées, qui fait beaucoup avec peu... malheureusement, je ne saurais dire pourquoi, j'embarque pas autant que ca devrait j'ai l'impression... je crois que j'aurais préféré des fantômes un peu plus subtilement maquillés...

    In retrospect towards Ti West, this movie is really down his alley. It is really effective, in its willingness to slow burn, and use restraint and grace. However, the acting wasn't great, Sarah Paxton lacked consistency between scenes. The suspense was scattershot, could not really get a feeling of dread.

    Entertaining, though the story feels well trodden in past movies. --Ti West knows how to do a horror movie and set up effective jump scares, but there's hardly any substance and Ti West seems to aspire to bigger and greater things than the movie he is making now.

    House of the Devil showed that Ti West had a tremendous talent for writing characters and directing for effect. But it's not a smart movie; the plot and characters aren't interesting and genre tropes are embraced, not subverted. Innkeepers proves that West has the whole package. Unlike in House, West uses scares here the way Shyamalan does: to draw us into a character arc. Claire shares Sam's intangibly charismatic, natural writing and acting, and the joy of Innkeepers comes in…

    This movie is honestly so fucking good. There are two sub genres in horror that I am particularly critical of, Exorcisms and Ghost Stories. This movie is in the latter of the two and is one of the high points of the whole sub genre. Everything in this is handled with the poise and grandeur of a visionary director. Keep doing this shit Ti West. Four and a half annoying baristas out of five.

    Sorry, but Ti West can´t be serious with this. What the hell is wrong here? After celebrating him like an overlord for "The House of the Devil", I was so damn sure you cant go wrong picking a film directed by him. Especially not after he also has written episodes for my beloved V/H/S series...But the truth is painful: This turns out as an empty shell of a horror movie, with one mega-bad klishee after the other. You cant just…

    We were really open minded and willing to give this movie a good rating because it's a Ti West.... But it is not posssible.

    Not comparable to his masterpiece "House of the devil "
