Ti West's The Innkeepers attracted to Magnet

If you ask me, I'd say horror wunderkind Ti West is batting 1,000 with his recent offerings House of the Devil and Cabin Fever 2. And I'm pretty sure Shawn is with me on that. The writer/director has his own unique style and can walk the line between slow-burn scares and balls-out campy gore.

And we're anxiously awaiting the release of his latest offering The Innkeepers, which has been making the festival rounds to mostly positive reviews. Well, our wait will soon be over now that Magnet Releasing has picked up the film for a theatrical, VOD and DVD release.

What's it about? Check it: "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"

Sounds like fun. And it stars Shark Night 3D hottie Sarah Paxton so we've got some eye candy to boot. Sadly there's still no trailer to pleasure your eye holes, but there is this nifty poster that's a throwback to the movie poster of yore. Yar!

The film hits VOD on Dec. 30 and theatres in February. We hope to catch it on VOD and get a review on the show soon after. Stick with us!
