The first movie I seen in 2012 and if this is any preview of what this year will be for film, then we're off to a great start. The movie progresses slow as far as the paranormal stuff goes, but it works for it. The setting is very atmospheric with it's quiet, eerie tone and the 2 main characters have a great chemistry with each other, so much so that even with few actual scary moments, it still manages to build tension quite well. Once the paranormal juices start really flowing, it hits hard, with some really intense scenes and one particular graphic moment that shocked the hell out of me even though I seen it coming, I loved every minute of this flick, with the exception of it's bitter ending. It leaves kind of a bad taste in your mouth and some questions unanswered but was not enough to ruin the film for me but did kill it from getting a perfect rating. For me, The Innkeepers is the Insidious of 2012. See it.
