During the final days before the closure of The Yankee Pedlar Inn, two employees with a keen interest in the supernatural spend the weekend manning the front desk, attending to a smattering of residents, and hunting for the ghost of a woman murdered there many years before, in West’s thoroughly entertaining, slow burn horror film. Relaxed pacing, strong characterisation, likable performances, and an ending open to numerous interpretations combine to good effect.
