Ti West is a bit of a puzzle. My only experience with him comes from watching the decent House Of The Devil, which he directed, and seeing him act in the awful, awful movie Silver Bullets at SXSW this year. Another of his directorial efforts, The Innkeepers, also screened at the 2011 SXSW, but I wasn't able to catch it. Other reviewers that I spoke to about it had mixed reviews -- some loved it and hailed it as a good old fashioned haunted house movie that was legitimately scary, and others thought it was boring and derivative. That makes it tough to decide on.

The film is about two hotel employees trying to find evidence of the hotel's haunted past, and the trailer is relatively effective in conveying its creepiness and atmosphere. At the same time, I'm not really seeing anything that hasn't been done before, but there's always something to be said for taking a tried-and-true formula and doing it well. What say you, peeps? Worthy, or schlocky?
