The Inhabitants (2015) Review:

The Inhabitants is really your usual haunted house movie… maybe a little too usual? well yes, but at least it is well done.

A little like in Ti West’s The House of the Devil, the movie really take its time to build up the tension, showing only a few shadows at first, and letting the dread slowly creep on you. After about 30 minutes, the movie takes a new turn and it is the young woman who starts acting weirdly, reminding a lot of the brilliant Honeymoon from last year. Unfortunately, the rest of the movie tends to drag along a bit too much, and not much happens for a while. That is really the biggest drawback of the movie (but a major one). The end also lacked a bit of punch, or a final twist, or just something to compensate for all the waiting.

Other than that, the movie is interesting. The directing is great, with a lot of immersive shots and clever out of focus effects. The overall atmosphere is really dark and very depressing, probably the best reason to watch that movie.

In conclusion, The Inhabitant is an atmospheric title, but one whose story should have been more rewarding. Still, I recommended it to those who enjoyed slow-burn paranormal movies such as The Innkeepers or The House of the Devil.
