Sara Paxton and Pat Healy play ghost hunters in the creepy trailer for Ti West's The Innkeepers

10.28.2011

I've been excited for Ti West's THE INNKEEPERS ever since I first heard about it. He also did THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL, which I loved. Ignore that he did CABIN FEVER 2. No one cares about that. You know why you saw the first one? Because of Rider Strong. That's right fans of BOY MEETS WORLD, I found you.

In the new trailer for THE INNKEEPERS, Sara Paxton does some ghost hunting with co-star Pat Healy. Is that a good idea? Is any ghost investigation in a supposed haunted hotel a good idea? And girl, I know you are not going into that basement after you were told to stay away.

Better than SAW 700 or whatever the last one was. Check out the trailer below. Form your own opinions.

"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."

Nice to see

that directors still make good old fashion ghost storys. Yeah of course it's the same cliche stuff but how much can you really dwell on it. IDC though ti west is a great director and I've been a good fan of his since the roost :)

See This If You Get the Chance.

I saw it at Toronto After Dark a couple of days ago and it was great. The script is tight and the dialogue is impeccable. I've never been a big fan of horror, but I loved this movie. It's heavily inspired by Ghostbusters, which is evident from the score, screenplay and cinematography, but it's still very clearly it's own picture.

Did not like it

NO SPOILAGE: It's just my opinion, but I saw this at Screamfest last week, and I felt the film on the whole was very weak. It's intentions are good, but ultimately, the characters are uninteresting (never present us with a goal-less character), there is too much setup with zero payoff, and in the end, I felt like I was cheated out of something more.

Don't get me wrong though, it's got some strong acting despite characters I don't care for, there are two really great scenes, and it's got a

Don't get me wrong though, it's got some strong acting despite characters I don't care for, there are two really great scenes, and it's got a good mood about it.

But ultimately, it feels too long, is slow, and ultimately uninteresting. Lastly, and I don't say this often, it tries too hard to be funny without pulling off the funny. I'd give it 2.5 out of 5 at best.
