#385: Top 5 Hotel Movies / Innkeepers / Diary of a Country Priest


Physically, co-hosting Filmspotting isn't a very demanding job. The only thing that can get a bit trying up in the studio during the winter is, uh, a tremendous sense of isolation... In conjunction with their discussion of Ti West's new horror flick "The Innkeepers," Adam recruits Josh to countdown their Top 5 Hotel Movies. Plus, the Bresson Marathon begins with "Diary of a Country Priest."
