After over one hundred years of service, The Yankee Pedlar Inn is shutting its doors for good. The last remaining employees - Claire (Sara Paxton) and Luke (Pat Healy) - are determined to uncover proof of what many believe to be one of New England's most haunted hotels.

As the Inn's final days draw near, odd guests check in as the pair of minimum wage "ghost hunters" begin to experience strange and alarming events that may ultimately cause them to be mere footnotes in the hotel's long unexplained history.

2011 Guide Analysis: "Most modern horror films rarely fare well with critics, though one exception recently was writer/director Ti West's 2009 effort "The House of the Devil" which is currently sitting at 86% on Rotten Tomatoes. A throwback to the classic horror of the late 70's and early 80's, the film was not only set in but shot in a way that resembles films of that period. As you can see by the trailer, the illusion is astonishingly authentic.

It was certainly enough to catch the attention of horror buffs and critics alike who are now keenly awaiting his next feature, this ghost story about a soon to close Connecticut hotel and the clerks who think it's haunted. West says that the hotel is the one he and his crew used while shooting "The House of the Devil" and so the storyline will be informed by a lot of his experiences there.

Though there'll be a few jokes, 'Innkeepers' aims to be both more commercial and scarier than 'House' was. It's more dialogue driven as this follows a group of people throughout, but his style of slow-build suspense and genuine scares rather than quick cutting or gory interludes will remain. One bit of casting that has me excited is 80's babe Kelly McGillis as a former TV actress turned psychic. A release is expected sometime in the first half of the year."
