Trivia

Viewers often find it hard to place the era this film occurs as the webpage the character of Luke designs is quite outdated looking by about fifteen years, and none of the main characters ever bring out a cellular phone at any point. Ti West explains that the film takes place in "present day" - Luke's style of web design is to convey how inexperienced and unimaginative he is, and the fact the characters never bring out phones is explained as "They probably have them but never need to use them".

The Innkeepers
5 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I don't usually write reviews but after watching this film and then looking at the latest reviews posted on here i felt compelled to give this a serious review.

If you like Slasher movies where girls who fall down a lot are being chased by a maniac with a weapon. THIS FILM IS NOT FOR YOU.

If you like Zombie movies with lots of blood and gore. THIS FILM IS NOT FOR YOU.

If you've got the attention span of a goldfish and like to chat to your mates all the way through a movie. (Guess What).

Right now the rantings out the way.

If you like sitting in a dark cinema/room, late at night with no distractions and you like ghost stories, then watch this film. I thought the acting, directing and sound score of this movie all worked really well and that with ghost stories less is more. The odd noise here and there, was that a ghost? or wasn't it? The uncertainty of whether this is real or not is what a ghost story should be all about, yes it's slow but that builds up the atmosphere, which i thought was great and there's some genuinely jumpy parts in the film. Sat here on my own in the dark watching this film had me gripped from start to finish. It's been a long time since i've seen a film this good and i recommend this to anyone who's into ghost stories.
