The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Innkeepers (2011)

Starring: Sara Paxton, Pat Healy, Kelly McGillis
Director: Ti West

A hotel with a haunted past is closing down. On its final weekend two employees try to capture proof of a ghost while not trying to disturb the few guests in the hotel.

My Take:
I'm a bit torn on this flick. I wanted to enjoy it more than I did. That doesn't mean it's a bad movie at all. I just felt a bit unsatisfied at the end.
The first 2/3 of the movie deals with the two main characters playing around. Ground work is laid and the tension starts to build. The final act is when things break loose rather rapidly. Still the majority of action deals with what may be there.
Give it a shot and see what you think.

Rating: In the middle (maybe better)
