    The Innkeepers is like an old horror film, but one of the best old horror films, the story is sorpresive, the cast, the situation, oh my god! a really scare film. The Innkeepers is a classic.

    Great movie, reminds me of the 1970's horror movies. The slow pace and peculiar timing creates atmospheric tension. One of the best ghost stories since 'The Others'.

    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.
