SXSW ’11: Ti West’s ‘Innkeepers’ Accepted

Just yesterday French director Xavier Gens leaked info that The Divide will be playing in this March’s SXSW Film Festival. Joining the rounds is Ti West’s latest genre effort, The Innkeepers, which comes courtesy of Dark Sky Films. After over one hundred years of service, The Yankee Pedlar Inn is shutting its doors for good. The last remaining employees –Claire (Sara Paxton) and Luke (Pat Healy)—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. West directed The Roost, Cabin Fever 2 and The House of the Devil.The Inkeepers
