Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Innkeepers -- an indie horror movie about a haunted hotel from the director of The House of the Devil -- has a few very scary moments and some scenes with strong blood and gore, though neither is constant. There's no sex or nudity, but there is sexual suggestion, plus shots of characters in very little clothing. Strong but infrequent language includes a few uses of "f--k" and "s--t"; characters also drink, and a supporting character is shown to be an alcoholic.

Sexual Content

The female lead takes a shower, but no sensitive body parts are shown. She's also seen wearing skimpy panties; she wears a long shirt over them. The male lead is seen in his underwear. He also subtly flirts with the female lead, but she doesn't quite pick up on it. Verbal reference to "Internet porn."


The movie has long non-gory stretches, but when the scary/gory stuff happens, it happens full-blast. Viewers see bloody bodies, scary ghosts, and frightening attacks. The main character, a woman, is sometimes in peril. A character tells scary ghost stories to a young boy. Characters die.


Language is relatively infrequent but does include a few uses of "f--k" and "s--t," plus "ass," "asshole," "damn," and "bitch."

Social Behavior

The movie has a somewhat negative outlook. Characters aren't rewarded for their bravery, but at least early displays of drinking, cynicism, and cowardice are eventually frowned upon.


Characters drink Schlitz beer. Cans are shown sporadically throughout the movie's second half.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A supporting character is shown to be an alcoholic. She leaves empty mini-bar bottles all over her room, and, upon awakening, asks whether one of them still has anything in it. The two lead characters decide to get drunk on beer one night; viewers see empty beer cans lying around as they act tipsy.
