The haunted-building premise gets some fresh spins from writer-director Ti West in this melodrama about a soon-to-close New England inn that may have spooky secrets left to be uncovered. Sara Paxton ("Shark Night") and Pat Healy play the last remaining employees determined to find out whether ghosts really are present.
Kelly McGillis ("Top Gun") co-stars as one of the site's final guests, who may be able to assist the workers' quest. Lena Dunham ("Girls") also appears. DVD extras: theatrical trailer; "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by Paxton, Healy, West, producers Peter Phok and Larry Fessenden, and second unit director and sound designer Graham Reznick. *** (R: P, GV) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
