Product Description

'One of the best, smartest and scariest indie horror films that I've seen in a long time' - Eli Roth

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.

The Innkeepers' cover artwork is a little misleading (I haven't seen the trailer, so I can't comment on that). It shows a blooded hand ringing a bell, implying that this will be some sort of gore-fest. It isn't. It is however one of the slowest moving horror films ever. I use the term `horror' over supernatural because on the 2-3 parts of the film where it actually gets scary, the scenes would probably fit more with other, more mainstream popcorn horror films.

It's about two workers at an inn which is due to close in the next few days. The inn is supposedly haunted and they decide to try and prove the stories true before the building is finally shut for good.

Most of the film is character-building. The two youngsters play their parts well. They're endearing and easily-related to. The story progresses and the tension slowly mounts. Slowly. This is where the film could fall down for some. I've checked other reviews and it seems that people either love or hate the film. Some see it as not that much of a horror - more a slow-burning suspenseful ghost story, putting characters over gore. Others simply find it too slow to be scary and/or exciting.

I fall somewhere between the two. The characters and the way the actors portray them deserves credit and there is certainly an air of tension created. However, I would have liked a few more scares and a little more action somewhere along the way.

This film will find an audience, but whether you'll enjoy it will depend on how `fast-paced' you like your movies.

The Innkeepers mixes indie charm with horror film through confident, sure-footed direction from Ti West and attractive performances from Sara Paxton Pat Healy and Kelly McGillis. The film embraces horror clichés, dropping them in and out of the story in a natural and sometimes light-hearted way. It also mixes the acting styles of Sara Paxton and Pat Healy on one hand and Kelly McGillis on the other. See it for an intelligent and playful combining of genres that has fun with conventions yet still delivers genuine scares along the way.

The venerable Yankee Pedlar Inn is about to close for good and the last two employees, Clare and Luke, decide to do something productive over the Inn’s last weekend and look for the truth about the ghostly legend of Madeline O’ Malley, supposedly murdered at the Inn sometime in the remote past. Luke wants to jump on the paranormal bandwagon with a website about spectral activity at the Inn, Clare wants to because she really has nothing better to do.

Director Ti West directs a pared down movie of essentially a single location and just a few characters, and produces the classic horror film sensation that something in this place isn’t right. There’s a creepy, claustrophobic atmosphere throughout, leavened with some laugh out loud moments. This is the sort of film that knows mood and atmosphere are more important in a fright film than cgi.

Much of the film is taken up with the interplay of the two leads, Sara Paxton and Pat Healy. They make a good double-act. Their characters are on the same level and it’s easy to see them coming from the same background and working at the Yankee Pedlar for much the same reasons.

Format: DVD
The Innkeepers delivers perfectly on a human level. Whether Paxton and Healy are talking about the terrible customers and unbeknownst to them, the creepy harbingers of doom who occupy the second and third act, it all builds up to a crescendo. All these convergent threads make the innkeepers the antithesis to poorly scripted genre films the world over. The only saggy scene is when Claire (Paxton) goes out of the hotel and down the road to the coffee shop where Lena `everyone's least favourite mumblecore patron' Dunham works.

The mixed reception expresses this point perfectly; this is not a film for everyone. The Innkeepers is hard to digest, slow and lacking in the explicit allures of the genre. However at the same time, West is calling back to the period of classic cinema when horror wasn't just about the visceral immediate reaction, it was about something that lingered in the memory long after the closing credits. It was about people.

Ti West's Innkeepers is the antidote to the modern horror film to the point where I wouldn't really call it a horror film. Like all the best genre films, it's not the jumps or the scares that make these pictures stand the test of time. On the contrary it's the drama, the characters and the development and thanks to a witty script of brilliant tension, interaction and tragedy together with the fantastic low-key performances from Sara Paxton and Pat Healy. The Innkeepers is the antithesis to poorly scripted genre films the world over.

I actually really enjoyed this film; it's true that for long swathes of time very little happens, however Sara Paxton and Pat Healy excel as a pair of amateur ghost-hunters whose relationship is decidedly off-kilter, with Healy's bookish Luke almost professing his love (or perhaps just lust) for his lissome companion.
Director Ti West does very well with very little, and there are a handful-of scalp-prickling moments that may be derided by horror-movie afficionados but certainly worked on me!
I agree that the ending is a bit pat, however it did leave me with a fair few questions, and I think the film would bear repeated viewings.
