The Innkeepers

A Halloween movie night wouldn’t be complete without a good haunted house flick, and Ti West’s The Innkeepers is a throwback ghost story that’ll spook you while tickling your ribs. It doesn’t so much impress because it does anything original, but because of its elegant classicism; it’s like the perfect remake of Robert Wise’s The Haunting for our generation, dripping with glorious location atmosphere that sneaks up on you with its chilly embrace.

The Innkeepers / Reviews

Variety

Deserves considerable credit for being able to generate suspense and occasionally spring scares without relying on familiar haunted-house atmospherics.

Confirms writer/director Ti West as one of the major talents in horror today.

With a rambling plot and effortlessly likeable comic turns from both leads, this is much closer to the loose, semi-improvised freshness of mumblecore than to a traditional horror movie.

Luke and Claire are guilty, above all, of being dumb and bored. Even their interest in the ghost that may dwell in the dark corners of the Pedlar seems tepid and lacking in conviction.

The film is scary enough to keep you alert in the cinema, but unlikely to give you a sleepless night.

Ti West knows how to build suspense with quiet and timing.

Hollywood Reporter

A largely entertaining picture with too few (and late-arriving) scares to satisfy the multiplex crowd, but one that will please many die-hard genre aficionados.

Among the current crop of ghost stories, this is an outstanding effort. Ti West is shaping up as an authentic Master Of Horror.
