New nugget from Ti West, the Director of the amazing HOUSE OF THE DEVIL.
THE INNKEEPERS looks like it's going to be a fun little ghost tale. I hope he can keep up the energy and suspense that House of the Devil had. Unlike HOUSE, however, this looks like it's rather F/X heavy. Has Hollywood tossed too much money at Mr. West? That tends to happen when you make your first mega hit.
"Here! Here's MORE MONEY! You can make an even BETTER movie with MORE MONEY, right?"
Not always the case. As a matter of fact, I think many more interesting films are made with LESS money because it forces the movie makers - good ones, at least - to focus on story, pace and execution instead of just swirling some computer madness around for 90 minutes.
Fingers crossed Ti keeps hits wits about him...
About The Film
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.
