The Innkeepers

Unappealing amateur ghost-hunting hotel employees eat sandwiches wrapped in aluminum foil and drink Schlitz beer in this dreary thriller. Some sort of vague tragedy happened in a not-especially-old-looking hotel many years ago, but it's unclear exactly what that was. It doesn't matter really. There are some creepy moments, but often the cool stuff is interrupted by the irritatingly vapid thumbnail-sketch characters. Anyway, some vaguely plot-like stuff happens, but it's usually seen-it-coming-a-mile-a-way jump scares. Was the old guy the ghost's fiancee? Who knows? Someone forgot to tell us.
