If you’re planning on heading down to the New York Comic-Con this weekend then this news will surely be of interest. Director Ti West will be hanging out at the Magnet booth (#1925) signing posters of his movies House of the Devil and the upcoming The Innkeepers, as well as plenty of Magnet freebies.
The eagerly awaited The Innkeepers is set to be released on Magnet’s Ultra VOD and then all other On Demand providers on December 30th with a theatrical rlease scheduled for February 2012.
The Innkeepers is set in the venerable Yankee Pedlar Inn, which is about to shut its doors for good after over a century of service. Believed by many to be one of New England’s “most haunted hotels,” the last remaining employees -Claire (Sara Paxton) and Luke (Pat Healy)- are determined to uncover proof before it shuts down for good. 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. The film was inspired by West and his crew’s unnerving experiences at a similar hotel during the shooting of The House of the Devil.
