Low-key haunted inn movie. Don't know that this will be in many theaters so if your a fan of the genre you should check out MOD or wait for netflix ?

Gets pretty good reviews on RT.
The Innkeepers - Rotten Tomatoes

Two people are standing in as staff at an old 1800s inn on its last open weekend. The staff are a young (annoyingly girlish sometimes) woman and a slight older young guy. The young guy has it in his head to use the inn as a stepping off point for a web ghost-hunters business and Claire, the young woman is helping out.
The movie has sort of a slow pace, not an action packed tons of suspense horror sort of thing for the first half...then it starts to build but compared to some of the shock horror out there its still more an 'old-fashioned' haunted house story. There is about 10 minutes before the end where it gets kind of suspenseful/scary.

Not sure whether to actually recommend this or not. There isn't anything new here, I enjoyed it but I don't know if it was worth the price on MOD. I think if you like a slow ride/slow burn. Like a little scary story but not a lot scary give it a whirl.
I was unhappy with the ending.

P.S. It was interesting to see Kelly McGillis in something. I liked that she looked her age. She is 54. She probably can look a lot better made up etc. but not only has she not had any work done or stayed stick thin but she wears minimal makeup in this movie.
Hey I don't know whether she needs the money of this is all she can get; but I prefer to think that some actors prefer to live life and just work their craft without killing themselves to stay on top, only be in big movies and stay beautiful. Whatever you think of her I like that she seems like she's keepin it real and not sweating the other stuff.

After I wrote this I went and found this quite detailed McGillis story
