Variety reports that House of the Devil director Ti West will bring us The Inkeepers next. The story is about the last two staff members of a going out of business hotel that happens to be…wait for it…haunted!
Obviously it sounds like it could potentially be a little like The Shining or 1408, but I’m sure that West will bring something interesting to the project. I loved The House of the Devil and how he was able to create an atmosphere that felt like a combination of psychological-horror era Polanski and a 80’s-John Carpetner throwback. There are those who found it boring, but I loved that West genuinely took the time to develop his scares and actually creep me out.
The Inkeepers starts shooting in Connecticut this spring.
Are you looking forward to whatever Ti West does next or did The House of the Devil turn you off?
