Product Description

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.

Amazon.com

At a time when the horror genre seems to consist solely of cheap jump scares and MacGyverish torture contraptions, writer-director-editor Ti West's The House of the Devil proved a pleasant anomaly: a slow-building '70s throwback which understood that the process of getting spooked is at least half the fun. The Innkeepers, West's follow-up, winningly continues the retro streak, doling out the murk and gloom by steadily escalating degrees, anchored by Sara Paxton's wonderfully appealing mope of a lead performance. Kicking off with a knowingly chintzy Internet gag, the story follows a pair of bored clerks (Paxton and Pat Healy) working at a rickety Victorian inn during its last few days of business. Taking advantage of the lack of guests, the not-so-dynamic duo begin investigating the building's reputation for housing things that go bump in the night. After a boozy psychic (Kelly McGillis) checks in, however, the once-quaint creaks and moans become terrifyingly tangible. West makes smashing use of his confined location, patiently holding shots for several beats past comfortable and slowly venturing into cobwebby hallways until the goose bumps come marching in. Unfortunately, when it finally comes time to go for broke, The Innkeepers falters a bit, delivering a resolution that, while eerie, has a hard time measuring up to the anticipation generated by the fantastic first hour. Still, even if West can't quite stick the landing this time around, his film stands as a must-see for anyone feeling the blahs from the latest scary movie trends. If this tale was told around a campfire, many a s'more would be dropped. --Andrew Wright

Customer Reviews

The movie is very, very, slow paced and nothing really happens.
A. Pierre
This one clearly wants to spook you, old-fashioned style, and it makes a real attempt to develop its characters, its atmosphere and the suspense before the big payoff.

To say I was disappointed is wrong I just felt like there could have been more, the ending honestly felt contrived.

While I appreciated the generally positive reception Ti West's "The Innkeepers" received upon its theatrical run, I fear it may have been oversold as a fright fest. This is a small, but very appealing, piece set in a haunted New England inn that scores more from its human interactions than it does from its supernatural leanings. And that's just fine. If you're anticipating big scares and lots of horror mayhem, though, this may not be the film for you. Its charms are far more subtle and unexpected. In truth, I quite loved this movie. It has modest goals and, by keeping things intimate, succeeds quite admirably in feeling fresh and real. West keeps the effects to a minimum and allows the movie to come alive in the hands of his engaging cast. It's a wise decision as the screenplay is tart and funny and the actors are committed and enthusiastic.

Sara Paxton and Pat Healy play hotel clerks spending one last weekend in the historic The Yankee Pedlar Inn before it closes down for good. The rooms are mostly vacant, so the pair of amateur ghost hunters plan to use the opportunity to get physical recordings of its alleged haunting. Most of the film relies on the easy chemistry and camaraderie of Healy and Paxton and they play off each other well. Seriously, I laughed constantly throughout the film--especially due to Paxton's deft performance. Only three rooms have occupants for all or part of the weekend. They contend with a mysterious man with history in the hotel, a wayward wife and her child, and a fading actress (and spiritualist). As the hours progress, Paxton seems to be getting closer to uncovering real spirits. What begins as a lark may be headed for a more serious conclusion.

Ti West's follow up to his spooky 80s throwback House of the Devil is a return to a more basic and CGI-less haunted house story and is all the more refreshing for it. Tale of the final days of a supposedly haunted New England hotel is a fun and sometimes downright scary horror chiller that will please those horror fans that can still appreciate the days when effects were done live and scares were generated by the director and his camera, not digital FX artists. West once again takes his time to slowly build the atmosphere as he presents us with the story of the remaining employees of the old Yankee Pedlar Hotel, Claire and Luke (Sara Paxton and Pat Healy) as they decide to do a little paranormal investigating to gain evidence of the hotel's haunting before it closes. It gives nothing away to say that they may not like what they find. Ti West starts the film out with a light tone as we get to know these two slackers with an interest in the paranormal and as the story progresses, the tone slowly gets darker until, as with House, West unleashes his supernatural horrors during the intense final act. Some of today's impatient horror fans might not appreciate the slow burn but, it worked in House of the Devil as it does with Innkeepers, because, when we finally get to the good stuff, it is all the more effective since we haven't been bludgeoned with it from the start. West gives us a few red herrings and some spooky stuff along the way to wet the appetite and thus we are primed and ready when the real scares start. It also doesn't hurt that we like Claire and Luke and obviously are afraid for them when they fail to heed a psychic guest's (Kelly McGillis) warnings about leaving well enough alone. A really fun, spooky ghost flick that proves once again that Ti West is a legitimate filmmaking talent who's work deserves to be noticed.

I have been a fan of horror movies my entire life and they almost never disappoint me. And I can't really say that this one disappointed me either. However, what you see in the preview is really not at all what you get. The mystery of the ghosts is never really solved, the pace doesn't pick up until the last 20 minutes and instead of intentional artistic omission being the reason behind the unanswered questions once the credits started rolling, it seemed more like poor execution of an otherwise good idea. I have never been one to comment on movies rented here but I felt compelled to give the warning that this movie, in my opinion, is in the same vein as some of Sam Raimi films. If you go into it wanting lots of scares and gore then you will be disappointed to find that there is more comedy than anything else. Definitely not a bad thing (I love Sam Raimi) but I probably would have liked this movie more had I known what I was buying. And that's that. : )

Quaint, enchanting, cute - these aren't words normally associated with films about a haunting, but they are more than apt for describing The Innkeepers. If you're wondering if this can even be considered a horror movie, I can assure you that it does earn its horror chops when all is said and done (although I think the trailer oversells the scare factor). What I took away from the movie, though, was a rather poignant sense of melancholy. You aren't going to find many horror films that run you through such a gamut of emotions as this one. It's an unconventional but really impressive piece of work from writer/director Ti West.

The setting is the historic Yankee Pedlar Inn, on the final weekend before it closes its doors forever. With only one floor open and three rooms booked, young Claire (Sara Paxton) and Luke (Pat Healy) are all the only employees left to see the inn through its final days and hours. Their focus, however, is in trying to prove that the venerable old hotel is indeed haunted - supposedly by the ghost of Madeline O'Malley, a young bride who reportedly hanged herself when her lover abandoned her on her wedding day. Luke has created a web site about sightings of the ghost, but it is Claire who seems fixated on making contact with Madeline before the inn closes its doors forever. Claire is quite a character - young, unfocused, highly excitable, and just incredibly cute. She definitely doesn't seem to have the temperament of a ghost hunter, as several comical scenes early on make clear. Personally, I found her infatuating, and I thought Sara Paxton's portrayal of her was almost magical. Kelly McGillis also turns in a strong performance as actress turned new age healer Leanne Rease-Jones, a character who comes to play a crucial and prophetic part in the story.
