The Innkeepers

If you are not familiar with Ti West and you're a horror buff, you need to stop, do yourself a big favor and watch The House of the Devil (on VHS if you can). West has been working on his next horror-thriller, called The Innkeepers, starring Sara Paxton, Pat Healy and Kelly McGillis, and it's finally ready to make its premiere at SXSW next weekend. The film is a thriller centered on the last two employees at a haunted hotel that's going out of business. Ain't It Cool News got to debut the first official poster for the film and it's some gorgeous artwork, very mysterious with a classic horror feel. I really wish I was down in Austin seeing this!

Ti West's The Innkeepers Poster

After over one hundred years in business, The Yankee Pedlar Hotel is about to close its doors for good. The last remaining clerks, Claire (Paxton), a twenty something that has come to terms with her lot in life, and Luke (Healy), a computer-smart loner, are convinced that the hotel is haunted and are determined to prove it. As several strange occurrences begin to add up, both Claire and Luke must make the crucial decision on what to believe and what not to believe. Ti West always uses fantastic art - The House of the Devil had an amazing poster, too. Jeremy will be at SXSW and he'll probably have the first review of this, so stay tuned!

    I absolutely love Ti West's films! House of the Devil was great!Watching it, you'd think you were watching something from 1981...Ti's the next great director, hopefully he'll stay independent much longer..Eli Roth wish he was as talented as Ti West!!
  • Ti West is awesome.

    Pat Healy? um...what?

    this looks like a children's book. I don't find it very appealing.
  • That type is good, I like the mood of the poster for sures.
  • The dude designs
    Hey, im The Dude designs the guy behind the poster design/illustration just doing the rounds to get my name out there. I worked closely with Ti and Larry at scare flix to get the tone right, as some people are shoked to notice it isn’t a horror poster, its more goonies meets Victorian ghost vibe, as this is a different style of film to house of the devil, the guys didn’t want to go down that video nasty route. So its got a more classic 80’s adventure poster vibe to it! So please check out my other stuff on (I will do a write up on the design soon). Im also responsible for the Hobo with a shotgun poster… the more support this hand drawn style of poster the more we will start to see out there!!

    Ahhh, a real art poster again, how refreshing! Looks like a fun movie from that poster.
  • I was an intern on this shoot in CT. Reading the script, and seeing the few scenes I did, I can tell you its gonna be awesome.
