I'm watching this (hopefully) tonight, and I've got some pretty decent expectations. I enjoyed The House of the Devil
, even if it was a very slow-burn flick. West's attention to detail and style is to die for.
EDIT: Got done watching the film and it floored me! This is why I started watching Horror films in the first place! I haven't been scared by a ghost film in so long , nor have I jumped as many times as I have in this...ever, so at was very refreshing to see a film achieve the title of a "scary picture." It really reinvigorated me to hunt out many more good Horror films, something I have been all-but burnt out in. Here were my initial thoughts of the film, courtesy of my Facebook:
The Innkeepers was by far the best Horror film of 2,011. Nobody does atmosphere like T.I. West, and when the moments get tense they're tenser than the violin strings used to record the film's score. He presents archetypal motifs in a fashion which impresses the audience as if they have never seen or heard of such a thing as a "ghost story" before. One can't help but to fall in love with Sarah Paxton, especially since she wears the same blue hoodie as I do (SO CUTE!!! lol). After this and House of the Devil, I can't wait to see what West has in store for us next; and yes, I would call him one of the next masters of Horror.
