One of the best horror movies I've seen in resent years! Its a horror comedy that is genuinely funny and genuinely scary, enough said. Also, Sara Paxton is amazing. Thank you.
Creepy haunting film with a fantastic performance by Sara Paxton. Ti West has yet to disappoint me.
The first two-thirds of the movie walks a strange line between eerie and an attempt at comedy. The plot isn't particularly gripping and the scares are few and far between, but it's a decently entertaining movie. You could do worse.
I love this movie. I like it as much as House of the Devil but for the opposite reasons. I felt the slow burn in The Innkeepers was thoroughly entertaining and the ending fell a bit flat and I felt the ending to House of the Devil was incredible and the slow burn was a bit stale at times. But I enjoy both movies thoroughly and I'm pretty shocked at how much audiences didn't dig this movie. Critics loved it, audiences are fairly split on it. Definitely a buy for me.
I've now seen this movie twice, and there's just something about it that really works for me. I like the characters a lot, and even if the plot doesn't resolve particularly great, it's a creative and fun watch. The House of the Devil is the director's previous film, and is maybe better.
