The Innkeepers (2011)

Ti West directs Sara Paxton, Pat Healy and Kelly McGillis in this ghost story where a pair of amateur ghost hunters work the lobby of a closing down haunted hotel.

Ti West can do atmosphere on a low budget in his sleep. This is all cheeky tease though, very little spookhouse. In fact there is more farcical comedy than ghastliness as the hipster odd couple kill time. Clerks with an occasional jump scare. Sara Paxton manages to add some sparkle to a thin lead role.
