Should have kept it in the can...garbage can that is.

I bought. I saw. I want my money and that part of my life back. This movie from benign start to absent ending was a no scare crud fest. The story was totally plausible and could have been a decent movie with a few changes... like leaving 99% of the movie on the cutting room floor and showing the rest. I guess they did... in good movies they are called trailers. The trailer was more entertaining than the entire movie was. Talentless acting, incompetent directing, and no drama make this movie what it is... boring. Its like a woman wearing a wonder bra. When she takes it off you wonder where the etc. Here when you tear the wrapping off the DVD you wonder where the entertainment is. Save your money on this one. Take a white sheet, cut two eyeholes in it and put it on your little brother or sister. Its cheaper than buying the movie and just as if not more scary.

A good, old-fashioned ghost story

A word of warning: this movie is not for the "Saw," "Hostel," or "Final Destination" crowds. This movie moves at a glacier's pace, but it is all in the interest of establishing character and it is in this particular area that The Innkeepers succeeds. Horror movies only work when the viewer becomes invested in the film's characters and you can only become invested in someone by spending some time with them. All three of the main performances are good enough to convince us that these people are real and familiar. They act like real people in an albeit unusual situation. Without giving anything away, I can say that the haunting did not scare me in the way I wanted to be scared. However, three days after seeing the movie I cannot get the ghosts out of my head. And the more I think about them, the more scary they become. The mark of a good film is that it keeps you entertained while it unfolds, but it also provides you with something to think about after you've left the theater.

Lead character acts like a 9 yr old. This film isn't arty enough to be an art film.

It's creepy, slightly scary and suspenseful. This movie is a fun watch.
