    In hindsight, I only enjoyed the third story.

    It was absurd, painfully self-aware, incomprehensible, sardonic and downright moronic.
    A wonderful deconstruction of the "found footage" and slasher genres respectively.
    Fairly relaxed being B-rated dreck--I appreciate this.

    The other chapters encompass everything that is wrong with horror cinema today.

    The gratuitous booby shots were very welcome, however.

    Finished watching Innkeepers. Sadly, it's not really worth it. I can't say it was a shoddy piece of work. My thoughts:
    - Decent visuals/framing/camera tracking
    - Decent supportive score and credits music.
    - Decent acting (although you could see the difference between the two leads and an old pro like McGillis)
    - Scares were few and far between
    - Could have used a better budget (very little cast, one basic setting, special effects weren't bad but might have been better)
    - Needed a better script -- much of the banter did occur very naturally between the two leads, but the script didn't really explain much at all so that the movie's ending felt unfulfilling, it just was very very thin. And once again, we have an ending where a character does something really really senseless for no apparent reason and would have known better. i.e., contrivance.

    It's a shame that the script/plot would actually do a movie in, as if that had been better then I would consider it a solid effort from a young director.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
