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Viewers often find it hard to place the era this film occurs as the webpage the character of Luke designs is quite outdated looking by about fifteen years, and none of the main characters ever bring out a cellular phone at any point.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".

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.

Something Is Missing to be a Good Horror Movie
21 July 2012 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The former fancy and elegant Yankee Pedlar Inn will be closed in a couple of days to become a parking area and the employees Claire (Sara Paxton) and Luke (Pat Healy) are taking care of the hotel while the owner is traveling on vacation in Barbados. They are bored and the hotel has only four guests: an unpleasant and angry mother with her young son; the TV actress Leanne "Lee" Rease-Jones (Kelly McGillis) that claims to be psychic; and an old man that spent his honeymoon in the hotel and wants to say good-bye the room where his wife and him had spent their wedding night.

The amateur ghost-hunters Claire and Luke decide to find evidences that the ghost of Madeline O'Malley, a bride that committed suicide when her fiancé left her in their wedding day, haunts the hotel and they summon her spirit. However, they are not prepared for what comes next....

"The Innkeepers" is a slow-paced horror movie with a promising story; unfortunately something is missing to be a good film. The characters development is long and poor, and the first two-thirds of the plot goes nowhere. Further, there is no clear explanation why Claire is threatened by the ghost of Madeline O'Malley. One good point is to see again fifty- five year-old Kelly McGillis, who has aged with dignity without trying to be forever young. I still recall her in "Witness" and "Top Gun" and it was a great surprise to see that gray-haired lady that she has become. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Hotel da Morte" ("Hotel of the Death")
