    The scariest aspect of this movie for me was the terrifying and very irritating fact that I actually paid money to watch it!! That said, I suppose that I could always use the dvd as a coaster for my tea cup, and keep the box as a novelty door stop.

    This movie should be classified as a porn for the amount of **** it sucked in the longest 100 minutes of my life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Move over Gigli and Troll 2; you have just been de-throned!!

    Absolute Garbage!!!! This isn't even a movie!!!! The 2nd worst movie I've ever seen, losing only to Ti West's other extremely terrible film Cabin Fever 2. Ti West PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

    Absolute Garbage!!!! This isn't even a movie!!!! The 2nd worst movie I've ever seen, losing only to Ti West's other extremely terrible film Cabin Fever 2. Ti West PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE never make another movie again!! You are the epitomy of the word hack!! If I ever meet you, I owe you a kick in the ****!! I will never watch another one of your "films" (if they can be called that) ; and I will instruct every single person I talk about movies with to do the same!! Honestly Ti West, do you even know what a ghost movie is!? Have you ever seen one!? I am actually asking you. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTHHHHHHHIIIIIIINNNNINGGGGGGGGGG HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAPPPPPPPPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNNS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is the slowest freakin movie I've ever seen; worse than Drive, but at least things happened in Drive!! I wish I could give this movie a 0, but the ratings only go down to 1. Seriously, how is this a movie?? What happened?? Honestly, someone explain it to me; what happened!? After 40 minutes 1 ghost shows up for literally 3 seconds, then nothing else happens until there are 13 minutes left in the film (inlcuding credits), and even those scenes did not make up for the complete waste of my time!!
    This is a ghost story that keeps you guessing: Why Am I Still Watching This!? This is like a slightly higher budget version of Ghost Hunters!! Just watch SyFy if you want to waste your time; at least when you turn that on you're expecting to never see a ghost!!!!!

    I actually enjoy watching bad movies, but this was on a whole other level!! It's like West had a bet to see if he could completely rip off and ruin The Shining and The Woman in Black and still make a profit!! It is clear that they allow mental patients movie and internet access because anyone who gave this movie a good review is either 12 or in an insane assylum!! I have never been more pissed about a terrible movie in my life!! I hope you enjoy waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting for nothing to be around the corner, or behind them, or appear at all!!!!! It is literally just a 100 minute viral scare video you can find on youtube, which would explain West's homage to it in the first scene of the movie!! He is laughing in your face and saying, "HA, that's exactly what you are about to watch!! Enjoy and here's some classical music to ease your pain!!" Thank god I didn't pay to see this!!

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. So, in order to make changes to my review, I just write a new one? That's how I'm interpreting it. This movie was absolute crap! They might as well have had some dumb blond running in the woods and tripping on air while being chased, and then had to go to every scary sound she heard, because you know, when you hear a suspicious sound, you go right to it... can't people make scary movies that aren't predictable?

    what is wrong with the world??? this movie is in the top 10 of 2012 horror movies of many sites, but is boring and stupid as hell!! actually looks more like a "horror movie for beginners". TERRIBLE, SIMPLY. Not even funny for the worst. Saved just by a cute actress, sympathetic and charismatic, and good technical aspects that gives its retarded story some charm.

Seriously so many good scripts in America and this hit the screens. I can't detail better how stupid and childish is this movie, but thats it, if you are 10 years old is the best way to watch a light horror movie. You cant ever trust a movie made by somebody called T West, be warned! Expand

    It Sucks! Slower than frozen molasses flowing uphill. Very predictable; no real surprises. Doesn't qualify as a "B" movie, barely a D. Maybe 50 years of watching and reading horror makes me a tougher audience, but I feel it was a huge waste of my time and celluloid. After 90 minutes there were 2 scenes that were "eery" but it was all never scary. Mostly I had to stay awake through the badIt Sucks! Slower than frozen molasses flowing uphill.

After 90 minutes there were 2 scenes that were "eery" but it was all never scary. Mostly I had to stay awake through the bad writing and uninspired acting. After 60 minutes of torture I allowed myself to fast forward a few times. There is NO Reason to watch this film unless you want to die from boredom. I watched this film because it was rated 3 of 4 stars. I would now like to inflict bodily pain upon the person who gave that rating for putting me through the pain of experiencing this extremely dull snooze fest. Expand

    I wanted very much for West's new movie to evoke films like "The Others" or "The Orphanage," which made me, in the moment at least, a believer in ghosts. The Innkeeper's payoff lacked that kind of oomph, and weirdly, the pairing of Luke and Claire brought movies about work relationships, like "Clerks" and "Office Space," more to mind than ghost stories.

    West's throwback style and disdain for excess allows his characters to shine.

    The Innkeepers is no masterpiece, but you may well leave with your nerves expertly jangled.
