After the massive success of House of the Devil, director Ti West has become something of a sensation in the world of horror. The Innkeepers is West’s fifth full length feature, and the question as to whether he could match the brilliance of House of the Devil just may well have been answered in the following two minute clip. Granted the trailer for the film is fantastic, but this clip shows West’s unique patience in building up to a scare, which we mastered so well in House of the Devil. Check out the clip below, and click here for the trailer and all our previous stories..
Sara Paxton, Pat Healy, Kelly McGillis and Georgie Riddle make up the cast. There are no UK release details as yet. The new clip features Sara Paxton and Pat Healy attempting to speak with the spirits that haunt the Yankee Pedlar Inn, and to their surprise, they succeed.
The film has just been launched in the US on VOD, and will haunt US cinemas from 3rd February. Here in the UK we await, impatiently I might add, some release details. It is also worth noting that Ti West has directed a short for horror anthology The ABC’s of Death, and has also provided a short film for Bloody Disgustings V/H/S.
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.
