Just days ago Magnet began to tease their upcoming horror flick Ti West’s The Innkeepers. And while I found the promo poster underwhelming, their new trailer is definitely creepy. Drawing inspiration from shows like Ghost Hunters a pair of friends (Sara Paxton and Pat Healy) decide to seek the spooky truth about the ghost rumored to haunt the halls of the hotel where they work.
West showed a skill for spine-tingling pacing with his 80s homage The House of the Devil (which is one of our Now Streaming Halloween picks), and displays his tactic restraint in this trailer with a chilling score and flash scares. Check it out below courtesy of Apple: (Via First Showing)
After over one hundred years of service, The Yankee Pedlar Inn is shutting its doors for good. The last remaining employees -Claire and Luke – 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.
The Innkeepers will be made available on VOD on Decemeber 30, 2011, and will hit theaters February 3rd, 2012.
