Happy Friday all, and welcome to February. It finally feels like a normal release weekend, now that we are out of the January no-mans-land. Funny how that self-fulfilling prophecy works out. Or, how studios strictly adhere to the "January movie" policy. Anyway, onwards and upwards my pets. We've got to get to the teen found footage movies, and the heartwarming whale tales, and the haunted house flicks, and the lone awards-contender dregs. Go go gadget In Theaters!

It's strangely appropriate that the rising career of filmmaker Ti West hasn't quite been meteoric, if only because his indie horror features (five and counting, including "The House of the Devil" and his experimental sniper-in-the-woods thriller "Trigger Man") are known for their slow burn. Reverential to cinema past while shrewdly and artfully revitalizing tired horror tropes, West's naturalistic stories fit right into the wheelhouse of his producing mentor Larry Fessenden—whose Glass Eye Pix label has unleashed most of the 31-year-old filmmaker's projects, including his latest spooker, "The Innkeepers."

Ti West has found a formula, and by god, he’s sticking to it. The indie helmer began in the world of micro-budgeted horror, where financial reasons necessitated a slow burn and eventual third act reveal. As his budgets have increased, his approach hasn’t changed, favoring this methodical strategy to the money-shot-driven approach by most modern horror filmmakers.

There were few films more divisive at last year's South by Southwest Film Festival than Ti West's creepy, kooky "The Innkeepers." We found the film to be an absolute delight and easily one of the highlights, not only of the midnight movie line-up, but the festival as a whole.

The residing prince of indie-horror Ti West's latest effort, "The Innkeepers," has been a bit slow to hit theaters. The picture, which stars Sara Paxton ("Shark Night 3D"), Pat Healy, Kelly McGillis (yes, that Kelly McGillis), and features a brief cameo by Lena Dunham, premiered at SXSW earlier this year and was supposed to see a release this fall.

Magnet, the genre arm of Mark Cuban's Magnolia Pictures, has been quite busy acquiring titles that have been playing the festival circuit to mostly positive response this fall. With Bobcat Goldthwait's Diablo Cody-bashing "God Bless America" already in tow, Magnet now has horror auteur Ti West's "The Innkeepers" looking to creep out audiences later this year.

Conan O'Brien Documentary, 'Conan O'Brien Can't Stop' Added As WellAlright, it's 2011, people. Time to get in with the new. The Sundance Film Festival is just right around the corner, but not far off in March is the SXSW Film Festival, which continues to get better and better each year.
