After over one hundred years of service, The Yankee Pedlar Inn is shutting its doors for good. The last remaining employees - Claire (Sara Paxton) and Luke (Pat Healy) - 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 check in as 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 unexplained history.

It's not easy being a gnome.
I heard about this, it looks interesting
It was good. I should have the review up tomorrow. 4 out of 5.

Looks very interesting and I gotta support Ti West. So I'll check this is out for sure.
I watched this last night. I was disappointed. This a good movie and VERY well done, but it's really, really slow. I liked the characters, the dialogue, the camera work, the music and the scares were creepy. It had some really good moments, but overall, the film didn't come together IMO. The tone is also all over the place. I like The House of the Devil better for sure. I'll re-watch The Innkeepers on BD In a few months, maybe I'll like it better a second time around.
I was liking it right up until Kelly McGillis pulls out that fucking crystal and divulges herself as a hippy.
Whenever they do that shit in movies, Insidious too, I kind of switch off. Why not just leave the hows, whos or whys as a total mystery. It adds to atmosphere.
I liked the main two characters and the banter between them, that was superb. Shit... why did they have Kelly McGillis doing that. She should have been topped by the ghost or something, not that.
Did you have a problem with the tone of the movie? The scary parts weren't as effective to me because of the quirky comedy.
Unfortunately, I was very disappointed with Ti West's new film. I'm a huge fan of Ti. I think The House of the Devil was brilliant (one of the best horror film of all time IMO) but with this...he sorta lost me a little.
I dig the whole slow burn type style he has, but with this, the slow burn ended with nothing. Literally nothing. West wasted too much time with little things like, the mom and son (completely and utterly pointless, yet given like 15 min screen time) or making fun of the girl at the coffee shop, while he could have been using that time to make some set-ups for the final act.
The film just sort of happened. There were no reasons or explanations. It didn't even give me something to think about.
Liked the character development, the corkiness and the vibe, but all in all, I was disappointed.
ll be checking out his next film for sure though. Can't wait to see what it is.

The whole place was haunted, I wish they played on it more rather than just a ghastly granny popping up now and then. Not creepy enough.
Christ, I wish I had the money to make a ghost movie. I'd show them how it's done.
