It's only really for specific moments that The Innkeepers very obviously feels like a horror film, yet it is effectively creepy.
February 5, 2019
Even so, The Innkeepers is a decent entry in the haunted premises genre, contained and spooky.

The film's greatest strength lies in the performances from Healy and, in particular, Paxton.

The Innkeepers starts unevenly, but ratchets up the tension until the explosively weird finale. And it will teach you to cover your freakin ears.

It's what your own brain fills in that makes The Innkeepers so chilling and effective, and [Ti] West knows it.

August 26, 2015
The indie king of the slow-burn horror flick is back, and this time Ti West is bringing along an unexpected dose of wit, warmth, and weirdly effective character-based comedy.

What finally sells The Innkeepers is the fact that the payoff really pays off.

A suspenseful and well-crafted old-fashioned ghost story.

Sometimes all it takes to make a decent little horror film is some good atmosphere and realistic characters.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
December 5, 2012
Just enough depth of character and place that it's smarter than your average paranormal flick.

When it delivers in horror and scares, it really excels with some shocking special effects and plays on sound effects...

Diverting and certainly worthy of examination; given all these pluses, I'd like to have seen more of West's compelling backstory threaded into his narrative.
June 27, 2012
An enjoyable chiller that isn't afraid to show less.

The pleasures here are small, but sure to be resonant for horror film fans.

The film is scary enough to keep you alert in the cinema, but unlikely to give you a sleepless night.
June 8, 2012
West continues to tread a delightful path between winking dread and the real kind, but his pacing's off in the build-up, partly because of the many, many opportunities Paxton has to flee out the front door.

It has some charm but is quite underwhelming.
