The Innkeepers
A Ghost Story for the Minimum Wage

The Yankee Pedlar Inn of Torrington, Connecticut, offers 60 individual bathrooms with private baths, each adorned with stenciled walls and period furniture and restored with the most modern of conveniences.

Since 1891, The Yankee Pedlar has been known for gracious hospitality and homegrown warmth. It also has a reputation for being haunted.

From filmmaker Ti West (The House of the Devil) comes The Innkeepers. Believed by many to be one of New England’s “most haunted hotels,” The Yankee Pedlar is about to shut its doors for good. As the Inn’s final days draw near, the remaining employees – Claire (Sara Paxton) and Luke (Pat Healy) – set out to uncover proof of its haunted past.

Release Date: August 18, 2009

The movie follows John and Emma Collingwood (Tony Goldwyn and Monica Potter), as well as their daughter, Mari (Sara Paxton). The family is off to their lake house for a traditional and much-needed vacation from their busy lives. Not long after they arrive, Mari talks her parents into letting her borrow the car to go and see her old friend Paige (Martha MacIsaac) who works at a store near the summer home. While visiting her friend at the store, a very nervous looking boy named Justin (Spencer Treat Clark) comes in and attempts to buy a pack of cigarettes and is asked for an I.D. he obviously doesn’t have. The conversation turns friendly-flirty and a deal is eventually reached that in exchange for a free pass on the smokes, Justin would provide Paige with some high-quality smoking material of the illegal variety.
