What a week it’s been for Ti West and his latest horror flick, The Innkeepers. First a very spooky new poster was revealed, and now, finally, the first trailer has landed!!! To say I am a little excited is an understatement, I am positively stoked at how great this film is going to be and I really, honestly can barely wait any longer to see it! Already the film has been gathering some superb word of mouth, and those who have seen it at film Festivals have said the film is superb!
Ti West is the visionary director behind The House of the Devil, The Roost, Cabin Fever 2 (which was not great but certainly showed off his skills) and he has also directed a short film for upcoming horror anthology The ABC’s of Death. Sara Paxton, Pat Healy, Kelly McGillis and Georgie Riddle make up the cast. There are no UK release details as yet, but just watch the trailer and remember this superb horror should be with us early next year!
After over one hundred years of service, The Yankee Pedlar Inn is shutting its doors for good. The last remaining employees – Claire (Sara Paxton) and Luke (Pat Healy) – are determined to uncover proof of what many believe to be one of New England’s most haunted hotels. As the Inn’s final days draw near, odd guests check in as the pair of minimum wage “ghost hunters” begin to experience strange and alarming events that may ultimately cause them to be mere footnotes in the hotel’s long unexplained history.
