The Innkeepers (2011) Review:

the Innkeepers is typically what I would call an “empty” movie. The plot can be summarized in a couple of uninteresting lines (no need to say how easy it was to write the synopsis). For me, the film was nothing more than the average, stereotypical ghost story.

Strangely, the film lets you think, especially toward the end, that something really big is about to happen, like a great final twist or something…but there is nothing. This was extremely frustrating and made me hate the film instead of just being bored by it.

Unfortunately, the absence of a scenario comes with a terrible lack of action. During the first 50 min, the only thing happening is a piano playing by itself… so you can already fast forward to that (sorry for spoilers, but I am making you a favor). Then there are a couple of really cheap jumpy scares and finally, you get to see the ghost appearing only 2-3 times in the all film. These apparitions are surprising and made me jump, which accounts for the 2 points that I gave to the film.  The remaining 0.5 points I gave for the pretty face of Sara Paxton (The Last House on the Left 2009).

The end is stupid and cheap, reflecting all movie itself. The Innkeepers may be one of the worst horrors that I watched in a long time, along with Paranormal Activity 4.
