Trivia

The Yankee Peddler hotel the story occurs and is filmed in is reported to be truly haunted by several spirits. Several of the key shots were actually filmed in the most haunted rooms in the hotel - several production crew members claimed to have seen and heard odd things that couldn't be explained.

Goofs

The inhaler Claire puffs on throughout the movie when having trouble breathing has a tan colored delivery system. In actuality, this type of inhaler is used at specific times for overall bronchial and nasal health. The type of inhaler that Claire would have used for stress-induced shortness of breath would have had a different colored body, usually red. One might argue, however, that if Claire had mixed up her inhalers this could have contributed to her passing out or hallucinating. See more »

Quotes

Luke: Pessimism is just a higher form of optimism. If you expect nothing from people, then you go through life being pleasantly surprised.

The Innkeepers
5 January 2012 | by godallmightybrownieSee 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.
