From the Press Release
An New England inn about to close for good is the classically creepy setting forTHE INNKEEPERS, the acclaimed new film from Ti West, the young filmmaker whose critically praisedHouse of the Devilgave the genre a jolt.

After over one hundred years of service, The Yankee Pedlar Inn in Connecticut is shutting its doors for good. The last remaining employees – Claire (Sara Paxton,Shark Night 3-D, The Last House on the Left)and Luke (Pat Healy,Dirty Girl)– are determined to uncover proof of what many believe to be one of New England’s most haunted hotels.As the inn’s final days draw near, odd guests start to check in and the pair of minimum wage “ghost hunters” begin to experience strange and alarming events that may ultimately cause them to be mere footnotes in the hotel’s long mysterious history.

Writer-director Ti West has revealed a unique style that pays tribute to classic horror of the 1970s and ’80s with the bold spirit of the new American independent cinema.THE INKEEPERS, which co-stars Kelly McGillis(Top Gun, Stake Land), was an award-winning hit on the film festival circuit and opened to rave critical reviews last week in theaters nationwide.“The way he works his magic is through a technique that some fans have called the slow burn: long takes and deliberately paced scenes, in which the camera follows characters down hallways, through the woods or into empty rooms.” saysThe New York Times”Featuring great fun, scares and characters, it’s a film that has the wonderful ability to both make you laugh and scream without ever becoming a parody of itself.”says CinemaBlend.Roger Ebert of theChicago Sun-Timeswrote,“Ti West knows how to build suspense.”

    You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

      I really wanted to like this more than I did. It has some quality acting, decent characterizations and a good setting. Unfortunately I didn’t feel there was enough here to satisfy. West doesn’t seem to want to commit to the horror; every time he builds some intensity he quickly backs away from it.

      Also, the old ‘is it real or in thier heads’ theme may be acceptably artistic but it’s also old and played out. In this case ambiguity leads to a serious lack of payoff.
