Trivia

Brenda Cooney never once broke character while playing the ghost of Madeline O'Malley. Moreover, Cooney's constant silence while staying in character genuinely unnerved Sara Paxton. See more »

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 »

Innkeepers, direct me to the nearest bed please, because this was a snoozefest...

As much as I enjoy horror movies, I never gotten around to watching "The Innkeepers", not before now anyway. Having found the DVD at a great bargain on the Amazon marketplace, I finally got around to watching it.

And with all the hype and great reviews and praise the movie had received, I believed I was in for a rather pleasant and enjoyable movie. Well, I was surprised, this wasn't even anything remotely close to anything I had expected.

First of all, you need to get well over one hour into the movie before anything starts to happen. And even then, it is nothing overly scary or overly impressive.

Don't get me wrong, the movie is nice to look at, it is well shot, well edited and well acted, however it is just anything but scary. And having to sit for over an hour without anything happening is just downright boring and could be considered torture.

The hotel itself and the sets were nice, and it did have a very nice touch to it. Sort of a very realistic and idyllic sense in the imagery throughout the movie.

The DVD cover brandishes "the scariest ghost story for years..." and "a classic in every sense". Well, of course we are all of different mindsets and views, but I beg to differ on those two statements.

Sara Paxton (playing Claire), Pat Healy (playing Luke) and Kelly McGillis (playing Leanne Rease-Jones) all did good jobs with their given characters, and had a lot riding on their backs, as there was almost no other people in the movie. So the pressure of performing well and carrying the movie was great, but they rose up to the occasion.

"The Innkeepers" was predictable, anything but scary and rather disappointing. This is definitely not a movie that will be haunting my DVD player for a second watching.
