Watch the cutest, loveliest and most adorable pixie get bored for over 90 minutes when she should be seriously worried about her future. This is probably not going to end well for her. She is funny, fascinating and is extremely expressive, which allows her to carry most of the film on her shoulders. You’ll hopefully fall in love with her. Ti West, writer and director, really wants you to.
There is wonderful chemistry between Sara Paxton and Pat Healy, which reflects on their respective characters. The strongest aspect of The Innkeepers is the exposition. The goal isn’t as strong as the journey, so enjoy every second! This film was obviously inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. It is sprinkled with jump scares you won’t soon forget.
Ti West’s specialty is to let us simmer and never boil. Suspense in injected in small doses and the horror is close to inexistent, yet we expect it at every corner. Don’t worry, by the time the end credit rolls, you’ll be filled with terror and shivering. This is an unconventional ghost story and an excellent one. It is one of Ti West’s best movies.
