(2011) The Innkeepers

Ti West delivers on a massively underrated ghost story that managed to sneak up on you unexpectedly through an initial quirky atmosphere.

I’m not a huge fan of ghost stories in general so what I loved, many others might not. First off, there’s no intricate back story for the haunting which I really appreciated since those back stories tend to be incredibly generic. This film really focuses on, like I said, kind of breaking down your walls and making you feel uncomfortable. Once it gets going it’s actually fairly relentless and the special makeup effects are genuinely creepy.

Not sure what else to say, this was just awesome. Ti West, whether you respect him or not, always makes straightforward, fun to watch horror films.
