    Satisfying payoff: Ti West's worst enemy. 6 years 6 months ago

    Pleasingly weird in the first half, but the shift from lightheartedness to macabre in the second one is anything but smooth. This could also have been turned to some advantage but sadly it was not. The film is fairly good at showing us how and explaining who but ultimately impotent in offering what. If it's a couple of folks in tacky Halloween makeup who pretend to be ghosts then the mission's failed. It was also far from prudent to waste the characters so pointlessly after taking so much time and care to introduce them. The Innkeepers could potentially be a powerful ghost story but ends up as a commonplace instead. If it's anywhere near The Shining, it's the guy who takes out the trash in Overlook Hotel... sometimes he even hits the bin, yep. 7 years 7 months ago

    Pickman is spot on.
    I wouldn't say I'm completely disappointed, but for how great the characters were and everything else was... It was all so beautifully set up, wonderfully paced - slow, 70/80s horror-style - but there just wasn't enough punch at the end.
