No suspense or scares,
This review is from: The Innkeepers [DVD] (DVD)
I really liked Ti West's directorial style on The House Of The Devil so decided to give this haunted hotel film a go and I have to say it was a disappointment. It tells the story of two hotel workers and a very limited amount of guests, including a mother and child that have no impact on the story. The film feels far too long and the two leading cast members are not likable despite over long character development. The lead cast member (Sara Paxton) acting is woeful. When these sort of films are done well they are tense and frightening with lots of suspense and scares (The Innocents, The Others, The Uninvited), but this film is plain boring with no suspense or jumpy moments, a sad let down.

I couldn't agree more! You've done a fantastic job of summing up my exact feelings on this film. Loved House of the Devil. Hated this one.
