One of the most anticipated horror films at last week’s SXSW Film Festival was Ti West’s The Innkeepers, his slow-burn follow-up to The House of the Devil. While the film carries some incredibly frightening moments, Harley still prefers Devil:
“Even though it has some issues, ‘The Innkeepers’ is a fine film that’s not bad, just kind of disappointing. While not trying to really emulate anything in particular unlike West’s last film, it plods along way too much as it tries to make you identify with its characters and their plight, and ends up spinning its wheels for an hour instead. The performances are great, the comedy and horror work well separately and the payoff is worth the wait, but in the end the whole is not as great as the sum of its parts.”
