The Innkeepers focuses on the final weekend of the haunted Yankee Pedlar Inn. With only a handful of guests staying there, innkeepers Claire and Luke move into the hotel for the weekend. They want to experience the hotel's resident ghost firsthand before the hotel closes its doors forever.
This was not like any other scary movie I've seen; it moved extremely slowly and had very few outright scares. There were bumps in the night and creepy strains of piano music but very little in the way of in-your-face frights. This is not to say it wasn't scary, though. The whole feel of the movie was creepy.
The end did leave me with some questions but after letting it sit for awhile I came to terms with it. All in all I think The Innkeepers was a skillfully told ghost story. Although, when someone tells you to stay out of the basement, for heaven's sake - STAY OUT OF THE BASEMENT! 7.5 out of 10.
