“This beautifully observed character piece harks back to the charms of the 50s B-horrors, and only in its last act does it really start to freak you out.”~New Zealand International Film Festival

Aroview: Horror savant Ti West (HOUSE OF THE DEVIL) turns his attention to the paranormal activity in a run-down hotel in this expertly crafted ghost story.

West’s signature attention to detail and formal control is once again imparted on a genre known for regressing into excessive bloodletting and gruesome death invention in recent times. Owing much to THE SHINING while also uniquely oscillating in tone (between Scooby Doo hijinks and workplace slacker comedy), the film’s commitment to mood and suggestion, though not for every horror fan’s taste, makes for another welcome change of pace in the scary movie stakes.
