I love this movie. I love almost everything about it. I think the actors are awesome, the dialogue seems natural, the setting is beautiful and beautifully shot. I love the attention to detail - when Claire is looking at the Real Hauntings website, the caption on one video is, “DOOR WAY GHOST !!!!!!!1” The “1” at the end really got me. This is not really a scary movie. Two young-ish people work at a failing hotel, spending their time scaring each other, avoiding the guests, and working on a website about the hauntings that supposedly abound around the hallways. The jumps are scarce, and the general feel is one of quiet creepiness, but it’s mostly pretty and kind of funny.
